I have been married to my husband Dan for 35 years and am a mother of 3 adult children who are all married. I am from the Chicago suburb of Shorewood, Illinois. I have spent the majority of my life in Illinois where I attended the Joliet School of Practical Nursing. When my husband Dan went into semi-retirement and we decided we would make a move to St. Charles, Mo. This put us temporarily closer to one of our children. During that time, we found out we were expecting a grandchild in Texas! The move was made and hence we discovered Belton, Texas. I accepted this position here at Stoney Brook to care for the people who deserve the most from us. My passion and compassion is for the young elderly. This population deserves our greatest respect and care. I come with 34 years of nursing experience to include management of a large multi-site privately owned internal medical clinic, assisted living, step down unit, home health for adults and pediatrics, and early on nursing homes where my passion began. I am privileged to be a part of this energetic and caring team, as well as have the opportunity to spend my time and energy on the people who call Stoney Brook home.
Hello, my name is Simone McNeil and I have been an Activity Director in Texas for thirteen years. I am from North Carolina and have lived in several other states due to my dad’s 27 years in the service, I enjoy traveling, studying Rome and having guest at my home. My background in activities range from Assisted Living to Alzheimer’s and Memory Care. I have learned during my time in this field that we as humans truly desire the same things at any level. We all need to be socially accepted, to have a purpose and to feel loved. My job is to create a fail proof atmosphere that welcomes all levels of participation. Some seniors may choose activities that make them feel needed or remind them of their life before such as folding clothes. I must create a loving environment in which trust is developed and residents feel safe to express themselves through participation. My goal is to make each day the best day ever!
I have worked for Stoney Brook since November 2015. I have 8 years of maintenance director experience in various facilities. My time at Stoney Brook has been very enjoyable and rewarding. The level of respect from all the staff and team work make it a great community. I have been working on a degree in Business Administration at Colorado Technical University. I have been married to my wife, Melissa for almost 8 years and we have 3 children, Jason, Jr., Hanna and Jordyn. We also have 1 fur baby of 5 years and her name is Sassy as well as 3 horses. In my free time I enjoy coaching softball, camping, bass fishing and spending time with my family.
Charles Wilson, Chef
Culinary Service Director
I grew up in Temple, Texas and graduated from Temple High School in 1986. I went to work at Scott and White Hospital in 1989 where I started my career in the food service industry. I got married July 17, 1993 to Darlene Wilson and we have three wonderful children, Zyckeria and my twins Charles Jr. and Cerenity Wilson and our dog, Reese’s. My hobbies and interests are God first, family, work, friends, working out and watching sports on TV. So while working at Scott and White, I went to college at night for three years and got my Culinary Arts Degree at Le Chef College in Austin, Texas. I got promoted to Food Service Retail Supervisor at Scott and White in 1997. In 2000, I served as the Assisted & Dietary Food Service Manager at Weston Inn HealthCare. I 2005 I started my career as a Military Contractor working oversees in the food service industry in the DFAC’S in Iraq. I worked oversees from 2005-2011 where I started out as a Sous Chef in Baghdad, Iraq and ultimately worked as the Food Service Supervisor. Upon returning home, I returned to Scott and White from 2012 until 2015. The next step in my career was when I got a call to interview for the Culinary Director position at Stoney Brook of Belton. The reason I chose to work at Stoney Brook was because I knew I was coming to work with an awesome company and an Executive Director that shared my passion to see that our residents, customers and coworkers receive the best food and service from our Culinary Department day in and day out. I enjoy going out into the dining room, sitting and talking with our residents daily to discuss their likes and dislikes. I enjoy seeing their smiles when everything is ok and when it’s not, I take the time to make it ok! I’ve been here for eight months and I must say this is the best team of Directors and co-workers that I have ever worked with in all my 27 years of food service. We are like a family and that is why I chose to stay here at Stoney Brook of Belton.

Senior Community Marketing Director
I am a passionate God loving wife and mother of one son. I have lived in the Bell County area for most of my life. I graduated from Moody High School in 1987 and attended Temple College and San Angelo State majoring in Marketing. I have also had various experiences with non-profits and big corporate giants. I was a Regional Team Member for TXU Energy and that position moved me to Sugarland, Texas in 2003. During my time at TXU, I had the incredible opportunity to work with the geriatric population and I quickly realized that I wanted a position in an industry that would allow me to make an instant impact on their lives. In 2013, that opportunity presented itself at Stoney Brook of Belton. Since I joined Stoney Brook, I have the incredible blessing of working and encouraging families through the process of moving out of their current living situation and creating a wonderful new living experience for them here at Stoney Brook of Belton.

I am able to develop, deliver and train our strategies in all aspects. My mission is strong, bold and simple….continually improve and enhance the daily interaction with each and every resident. I consistently enhance the reputation of Stoney Brook Properties by achieving an environment perceived by our clients in whom they see themselves not as a patient, but rather as members of our extended family. I thrive every day to show passion for what I do!
Instilling trust in how I perform,
Loving kindness for those I serve,

Senior Executive Director
I joined Stoney Brook as the Executive Director in February 2011. I have over 25 years of experience in the health care industry and have served in such roles as Admissions Director, Administrator, and Regional Marketing Director with several companies. Over the past several years, I have been very involved in the community and represent Stoney Brook through several local associations and professional memberships. I have a Marketing Degree from Louisiana Tech University and obtained my Nursing Facility Administrator License at McLennan Community College in Waco, Texas. I chose to work in this industry because I am very passionate about senior adults and I love waking up each day making a difference in the lives of our residents. If I must be totally honest though, our residents make a much bigger difference in my life! I chose to work at Stoney Brook because the community’s mission was not only to provide a safe, caring environment for the clients we serve, but also to focus on providing a personalized, customized service that reinforces customer loyalty. My hope for our residents is to create memories every day!! I take great pride in my job and my goal is to always try to surround myself with a dynamic work family that shares my same vision and goals for our community. God has blessed me and has put me here with these amazing people and I am grateful every day for this opportunity to serve. When I am not at Stoney Brook, I enjoy camping, shopping, sports, interior decorating, singing and being involved in my church.
