Andy Haws Director of Health

Andy Haws is the Director of Health for Ovation Sienna Hills.  Her passion for nursing stems from her childhood where she had many extended hospital stays.  She had traumatic experiences feeling reassured and comforted by the nurses.  The empathy and comforting words shown inspired Andy to pursue a nursing career.

In 2014, Andy received her CNA credentials and worked full time to put her husband through nursing school.  Upon his completion, she went on to complete her LPN, and soon after her RN license and BSN degree.

Andy and her husband along with their 4 boys, moved from Eagle Mountain to St. George to enjoy the sunshine and Red Rock as Andy completed her nursing programs and started working as an RN on the surgical/trauma floor at Dixie Regional Hospital.  Under her leadership, this floor was presented with the  W1 Surgical-Trauma Excellence award in 2017.  She has worked as a family and caregiver educator for a Home Health and Hospice team and the Director of Wellness of an Assisted Living Facility in St. George.

I knew I was at home, the first day I started.  I fell in love with the residents and communities I served.  The wisdom and love the residents share with us each day is humbling.  It has been such a privilege to be in their homes and environment each day.”

In her spare time, Andy loves running (20+ miles a week), reading, RVing, hiking and being outdoors with her boys and family.
