Matt Bayer

Nurse Recruiter

What do you enjoy most about your work?

The relationships I've built over the years! A lot of my long-term travelers are friends on Facebook, so I live through them at times. I've worked with some really amazing people and many have become lifelong friends. Also the relationships I've built internally, with recruiters and other departments. I can say one thing confidently, we hire the best!

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

I like to think I can provide a sense of comfort throughout the entire process, paired with a great deal of knowledge about the travel nurse industry accumulated over 5+ years. Working hard to get you what YOU want, while remaining completely transparent throughout if I think there are better options/avenues for you to be successful. I'm never pushy and will listen first, then I will give my opinion based off experience. I'm efficient, relatable and hard working.

What is your favorite thing about working with travelers?

Knowing they're providing for their families or themselves in away they haven't before. Hearing and seeing the benefits this industry can bring, and changing people's lives.

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

Instilling confidence. If you're nervous or worried about something, just know between the 2 of us - there is nothing we can't solve.

Why are you passionate about this industry?

Creating an environment where nurses feel appreciated, and in turn they give great care to the patients at these facilities.

Where did you grow up?

Lexington KY! Rolling hills, with lots of Bourbon and Horses :) The stereotype is accurate.

What are your favorite places to travel?

Cancun currently. But that could change soon....

What's on your travel wishlist

New Zealand, Antarctica, Amsterdam, Italy... the list could go on forever.

Tell us about your family or pets

I have one big brown bear, his name is Bruce. A 2 year old Chocolate Lab who I love the most!

What's your favorite food?

All foods. But top 3 are Thai, Cajun and Italian. (anything with a good spice)

What is your favorite pump-up song?

Too many songs in my head, a different one is stuck every morning I wake up. I like all genres, and don't discriminate. My shuffle would look like Michael Jackson, Metallica, Led Zeppelin, Rihanna, Luke Combs, UGK, and so on... really all over the place.

What's your all-time favorite hobby?

Any type of sports (until I messed up my knee), weight lifting, movies, trying new places to eat!
