Letter from the Administrator
My name is Ian Christy, the new Administrator for Granger Nursing and Rehabilitation. So far you all have been very welcoming to me and I thought I would tell you all a little about myself. I grew and in Newton, Iowa, which is roughly 45 minutes away from Granger and is the home of the Maytag washer and dryers. I am the youngest of three brothers, and we grew up very active with sports. The sports I enjoyed the most were baseball, soccer, football and wrestling. My brothers and I would practice a lot at home, I was normally the tackling dummy! I graduated from the Harvard of the north, The University of Northern Iowa, with a Bachelor’s Degree in Long Term Care Administration, Go Panthers! After graduating I started a career in banking dealing mostly with businesses transactions and loans. I was made the happiest man in the world when I married my wife, Madison, in 2015. She is a third grade teacher in Newton. We have two sons, Cooper and Callen. They make everything much more interesting! Cooper is 11 years old and enjoys sports, movies, and video games. Callen is 3 and is a wild man, he is very curious and enjoys getting into everything. I appreciate all of you and the warm welcome I have received. Thank you!
