Meet Our Members: Anthony Brocato

Anthony Brocato has been a member of Monterey AMBUCS since 2011, and was recently sworn in by Missy Hopson (Regional Director for Region 6) at our 56th Annual Installation Banquet on May 21 as our new Club President for 2016-2017.

Anthony Oath

Anthony says he joined our club, because, “My mother was an AMBUCS member many, many years ago and I always admired the great things she said that AMBUCS was doing for children.”  So, when Anthony was asked to come to an AMBUC meeting, he says “I instantly knew that I wanted to be a part of this organization. Not only for what they do to help children, but also veterans and the various therapy students at Texas Tech University.”

Anthony has many things on his plate, working at UMC/Physicians as Corporate Director of Outreach/Provider Relations;; Crazy Hoe Farms as a business owner; and Texas Team Management as a consultant

When asked to share an interesting fact about himself, Anthony shared that he is a Cancer Survivor, and we are sure glad for that because of all the good work he has done for our community and our club.  He says he loves to travel, to fish fresh water and salt water in the Gulf of Mexico, and bird hunt dove and ducks.

Anthony is married to Amanda Brocato – “my best friend, and we have 4 children that live in Amarillo and here in Lubbock.”   He was born in Huntsville, Alabama; went to high school in Floydada, Texas; and received his Master’s of Science in Healthcare Administration from Oklahoma State University.  He is a Marine, having served 8 years, and is a veteran of Operation Desert Shield/Desert Storm.

His goals are to travel; retire from healthcare, but still do consulting; produce more vegetables on the farm; do Mentoring; and still volunteer as a member of Monterey AMBUCS.

If, like Anthony, you want to be a part of a group of folks helping children and vets live more rewarding lives, then Join Us for lunch some Monday and check out membership in Monterey AMBUCS.
