Nurse Recruiter

What do you enjoy most about your work?

I enjoy connecting to different people all across the US. I love hearing about different experiences, life-styles, and fun stories! Sharing stories with my nurses to build authentic connections is something that brings me great joy.

What do you do for travelers that you feel is completely unique to you?

One of the things that I believe is unique to me is that I will be fully authentic and transparent with all my clients. I believe that "firm-kindness" is a great tool to help nurses navigate the ever evolving travel market. I push to make sure all of my nurses receive timely communications that are professional, but true to my own demeanor.

What is your favorite thing about working with travelers?

My favorite thing about working with travelers is finding a contract that works best for them and leaves the traveler in a better situation! Every morning I look forward to finding ways to better the lives of the people that I work with.

What is your most valuable advice for the travelers you work with?

Be open minded! The more flexible you are, the more you will find amazing opportunities. Not all travel contracts can be summed up in a brief written description. The location, pay, resources available, coworkers and many other facets can really make or break a contract.

Why are you passionate about this industry?

My mother is a nurse, my dad is a doctor, and my younger brother is a travel nurse assistant. I have seen, first hand, the hard work and dedication that my family members have put into their patients and professions. I have spent years listening to stories of the profound impact that they make within their respective communities. I want to make sure that I set up my nurses to have the same impact as my own family and friends.

Where did you grow up?

I grew up all over! I have lived in Texas, Pennsylvania, Ohio, New Zealand, and Ecuador. I currently reside in the great state of Ohio!

What are your favorite places to travel?

I love traveling abroad, but if I have to stay in the states I am going to go exploring in the sunny, southwest! I love hiking, camping and most outdoor activities. I also enjoy the beautiful weather and delicious food found there.

What's on your travel wishlist

I would absolutely love to visit Los Angeles/ San Diego. I have never been out to California for very long and would enjoy spending some time seeing what the state is all about!

Tell us about your family or pets

I have a family of six! Two brothers, a sister, and a mom and dad. I also have a Chocolate Lab named Rocco. He is friendly and excitable. I love them all very much.

What's your favorite food?

My favorite food is a large breakfast burrito! Add eggs, bacon, salsas, and a toasted tortilla and you have reeled me in.

What is your favorite pump-up song?

Let's Get it Started - Black Eyed Peas

What's your all-time favorite hobby?

I make music! I produce tracks for myself and other clients that I have!
