I started in this position in June of 2018 but first came to Belle Terrace and Ridgeview Towers in August of 2017. I have a Bachelors’ in Family Science and Human Resources from the University of Nebraska, Lincoln. My background and passion is social work and the welfare of individuals.

I am married to Bryce and we have 3 daughters, Aca is 9 years old, Wrenn is 6 years old and Brixtyn is 4 years old. We live near Brownville, NE and our kids attend Auburn schools. We have a family farm that keeps us busy during all seasons. Bryce farms corn and soybeans with his dad and brother. Our girls have started showing cattle and enjoy playing with chickens, ducks, turkeys, cats and our dog.

Tecumseh is a great community and I have appreciated all the support that I have received. Belle Terrace has served this community for 45 years and is excited for what the future is going to bring. The community support does not go unnoticed. Belle Terrace has a family like feel with small town values. This is something that we take great pride and continuously strive to do better. We welcome you to come in and meet the team. Thank you for your continued support to residents and the staff!

Meet Our Residents

Linda Holthus broke her wrist and hip while doing some yard work at home here in Tecumseh. With family nearby, but working full-time, she needed a little more care than they could provide at home. Linda chose Belle Terrace for her rehab and therapy needs. Here, she worked with our PT and OT staff to heal up and get back to her home.

The therapy staff did a great job. I was really glad to have a local place to come to so I could still be near my family and friends. On Thursday nights my friends would come up for our regular card games. The staff set us up in the conference room and even brought us snacks and water. It was almost like being at home. The food was excellent, too.

Belle Terrace and Ridgeview Towers Resident

I was admitted into Belle Terrace due to lower back injury and newly discovered diabetic issues and after a rather lengthy stay, against popular advice, I chose to leave thinking I could take care of myself. Regretfully, I admit I was wrong, found out the hard way…Belle Terrace took me back and was offered the option of moving to the Assisted Living. And before, I was down on the idea, not agreeable. After I checked in, I realized I couldn’t take care of myself and needed supervision. Now that I have checked in to Ridgeview, I wouldn’t have it any other way. The staff is friendly, professional, and even my momma wouldn’t be able to take better care of me! Lol! What can I say, it would be hard to take me out of here now. My blood sugar has improved immensely. Since I’ve been here I’ve lost 35-40 lbs, and life is good again!! Was asked if I was planning on being here short term or long term, and my response is I am taking it one day at a time. Before I was all about leaving, now I am content to stay. This place is comparable to a Holiday Inn, everyone does their own thing and everyone is very friendly. Love the Trivia questions in the morning. Feeling pretty spoiled at this point, housekeeping, laundry, Cable, Free Wi-Fi, all the luxuries without all the work!!
