LOCATION: Brentwood, Tennessee

EMPLOYER: LifePoint Hospitals

POSITION: Senior Director, Pharmacy Informatics

WHY YOU’LL LOVE ITBrentwood is located in northern Williamson County just a few miles south of downtown Nashville. Considered to be one of the most desirable suburban locations in Tennessee. Residents enjoy a high standard of living, abundant recreational amenities and top-quality public schools. The city offers easy access to CoolSprings Galleria, the Nashville International Airport and all the sights and sounds of next-door Nashville. It is located in the heart of Middle Tennessee, a scenic and cultural treasure of beautiful rolling countryside woven intricately with quaint small towns, metropolitan landscapes and a rich heritage of traditions.

Brentwood and Cool Springs mix some history, shopping, dining and recreation to create an interesting place to visit. For a taste of local history, check out Primm Historic Park, which features Native American culture, or Crockett Park, which features the historic Cool Springs House. Crockett Park and other area parks also offer plenty of places to bike, walk and jog. The Brentwood Cool Springs area is a shopper’s playground.

Brentwood is in close proximity to a place where music lives. A place where music hangs its hat and puts its feet up on the furniture. A place where people don’t just talk about songs and CDs and lyrics, but live them night and day. That place is Nashville. Music City.

But, while music is the lifeblood of Nashville, visitors will also find a city of culture and history, of haute cuisine, of pro sports, outstanding academics, natural beauty and pure Southern charm. Nashville is a place where the past and the future peacefully coexist and build, one on the other, to create a destination that appeals to the interests of every visitor. This city is alive. You can feel its pulse when you walk down its sidewalks. And, fortunately, you can also hear it almost anywhere you go.
