Tell us about yourself.

I’ve been with the company since June 2021. Before that, I spent 8 years as a nurse, which helps me truly understand the needs of our travel nurses and the importance of finding the perfect match for both nurses and facilities.

When I’m not working, I’m busy being a mom to my very intense and excited little girl, Luna. Much of my free time is spent playing Barbies or running pretend restaurants with her.

Family is a big part of my life, both at home and at work. My sister also works at Uniti in the Allied Division, making the workplace feel even more like home.

In the rare moments I get to myself, I love reading, gardening, watching films, and traveling. Whether it’s a trip to visit family in New York or New Mexico or exploring a new destination, I love to get away whenever I can.

What do you love about your position?

I love getting to know travelers, discovering what motivates them, learning about their goals, and hearing their vision for their travel career. This role constantly challenges me to grow and develop both personally and professionally, which I truly enjoy. The opportunity to learn and evolve while helping others achieve their dreams is incredibly fulfilling.

What drives you at work?

Being a part of actualizing that vision is deeply fulfilling for me. Even if my role in their journey doesn’t include a placement, helping travelers get closer to achieving their dreams fills my cup.

What makes Uniti Med a great destination for potential travelers?

​Personally, I love everyone I work with here at Uniti. Every person here leads with their heart, and genuinely want to help and support our travelers however they can. I have never met a group of people more supportive of each other, and that translates directly into our work with traveling healthcare workers. Traveling with Uniti, whether it’s your first or 50th assignment, means you have a support system behind you every step of the way.

What differentiates you from other recruiters?

My goal as a recruiter at Uniti is to build a community of compassionate healthcare workers. I feel grateful for each opportunity to bring another individual into that community.

If you could travel anywhere, where would it be?

Sicily to lay in the sun and eat pasta for the rest of my days.

It’s safe to say I don’t see myself ever looking for other contracts outside of this company as a result of the best recruiter that I’ve had the pleasure to work with, Alyssa Carlson.

I’ve worked with several agencies since starting my travel nurse journey a few years ago and I must say that Uniti Med has been the best thus far!
