Our Team

Tammy Bargman

Executive Director

Hi, I’m Tammy! I am the Executive Director at Prairie View Assisted Living. I have been a part of this wonderful community for the past 10 years. I was originally hired as a caregiver and after 3 weeks I was promoted to kitchen manager/assistant manager. I grew up in Winnebago and graduated from Winnebago High School. My family and I moved back to Winnebago 13 years ago. I have been happily married to my husband Tom for 23 years. We have 1 daughter and 2 sons that we are very proud of and love spending time with. My hobbies include spending time with family and friends, camping and cooking. I look forward to learning about your family’s needs and how we can make you or a loved one feel at home at Prairie View!

Mary Blake

Director of Nursing

Hi, I’m Mary! I am the Director of Nursing at Prairie View. I have worked at the facility for over 4 years. I found this career path in nursing because I always had a passion for helping others. What I love most about the community at Prairie View is that everyone treats each other like family and we’re a small group, so we’re able to spend more time with each and every resident. When I am not at Prairie View, my hobbies include singing, reading and drawing. I look forward to meeting you and your family! Welcome to Prairie View!
