RSVP Coordinator, Walker County
Zan Brock has had a heart for helping others since she was a child, which is appropriate since her Greek name means “helper of mankind.” As a Licensed Social Worker, Zan has worn many hats. During her career, she worked with foster care, the Free Will Baptist Children’s Home in Eldridge, as a therapist in the behavioral medicine unit of a local hospital, in the maternity clinic of a health department, as director of Social Services in a nursing home, as a case manager in a homeless shelter for women and as a care manager with an insurance company.
In 2017, Zan retired from VIVA Health where she served as a Social Worker care manager. Since retiring, Zan has volunteered for the J.A.M.E.S. (Jasper Area Ministerial Emergency Services) Ministry, Operation Thanksgiving, Operation Christmas Child and Backyard Blessings. She also coordinated a Christmas basket ministry for shut-ins and served on the Missions and Everyday Needs committees at her church. In her spare time, Zan enjoys reading, gardening, traveling, quilting, cooking and spending time with her friends and her cat.
