Associate Recruiter



Tell us about yourself.

I was supposed to be homeschooled so let’s start there! I didn’t really receive any schooling, I taught myself how to read as a teenager which is super late in life for a child. My family raised the girls to get married and take care of the household, but I always had a drive to better myself and do more with my life and I have always had a passion for helping others get more out of their lives. I moved out on my own in my twenties and got two college degrees but in all of the jobs I have held I couldn’t seem to find one that allowed me to connect with individuals to help out in the ways I had always dreamed of until now, as a recruiter. I love connecting travel nurses. Even if I don’t get the opportunity to work with all of them, I still enjoy connecting with them and learning about them.

A couple other random things about me, my first baby was born in May 2022! I love him so much; he’s my whole world and I am super excited about creating this little life and watching him grow to be an amazing little person! I love reading and learning and still trying every day to be a better version of myself. I like anything outdoors, four wheeling, hiking, traveling etc and I come from a big family, I have six siblings.

What do you love about your position?

I love that I get to send travelers to some amazing places that neither of us knew were amazing until they went to those locations. And I enjoy the fact that my travelers are my community just like the company is my community and my family.

What drives you at work?

I have a strong work ethic and connecting with travelers because my travelers are like my friends whom I want to see succeed!

What differentiates you from other recruiters?

I feel that I have some of the same qualities as many other recruiters, because I care about you and helping you reach your career goals and you aren’t a number to me, I like to build relationships with my travelers, and I like to know what’s going on in your life and not just in your work life.

What makes Uniti Med a great destination for potential travelers?

Uniti Med is a great place for travelers because everyone who works here cares about the traveler and is always there for them.

If you could travel anywhere, where would it be?

If I could travel anywhere, it would be a tossup between the Caribbean and Japan to see the cherry blossoms bloom but honestly, I have a bucket list.
