Milly, who has been with La Hacienda since 1992, has a long connection to the area. Her mother was the original owner of the Acapulco Restaurant in Kerrville and Milly worked for her. She’s also lived in Dallas and New Mexico, but returned to Kerrville, where she was recommended to La Hacienda for a position that also required the ability to communicate in Spanish. “I love to meet the families and patients,” says Milly. “I’ve been through this with members of my own family. I understand what they are going through.” She enjoys oil painting, going to casinos and travel. At Peru’s Machu Picchu, she was “overwhelmed by the feeling of the people who lived there over time.” Milly has two adult daughters and five grandchildren.
