How did you become an executive in the health care industry? Did you always have an interest in health care?
I have been in the staffing and recruitment industry for more than 20 years, and I have focused on everything from engineering to IT to clerical. Our youngest daughter had a pretty significant health crisis as a toddler, and my husband and I witnessed firsthand the heart, passion, and expertise of a medical staff that would (and did) do anything for the good of our child. It stuck with me and I wanted to be part of it. I have always been someone that needed to deeply believe in what I was doing to do it well, and healthcare touched my heart. I love everything about it.
What is a current challenge you are facing in your role or in the industry as a whole?
The entire healthcare industry is facing serious shortages of almost every type of healthcare professionals, including nurses, physicians, and allied health workers. None of the companies in our sector of healthcare staffing and workforce solutions are able to fill 100% of their clients’ staffing orders. So that means we have to be truly innovative in order to help them to find the best quality practitioners available and to optimize the staff that they have. Optimizing your clinical and nonclinical staff is becoming so important as the healthcare industry becomes more and more complex. That’s why we now provide our clients with the best managed services programs (MSP) in the healthcare industry.
