A LITTLE ABOUT ME

June 2017 marked my 7th year recruiting. I am a complete busy-body, over-achiever and workaholic, so this job suits me perfectly and I'm never bored. The most fulfilling part of my job is to live vicariously through you-I am absolutely, positively envious in the best way of the exploration, adventure and self reinvention that takes place in travel nursing. I am a true believer of this industry and think everyone should experience travel nursing if they are able.

I view the recruiter-nurse relationship as a partnership above all else and like to treat it as such. My style is direct and honest; with a sense of urgency to find you a job, solve your problem, and answer your question. Lastly, I am overly transparent and good on my word always.

I love working with like-minded, hard-working, honest, loyal people that want a solid & experienced partner in this business.

My Interests

  • Comments and Recommendations

    I hear from many different companies and recruiters. I am very "picky" and at times difficult to please. Stephanie is the one that CONSISTENTLY, almost daily, presents different opportunities for me without giving up.

    Stephanie is wonderful. She goes above and beyond to make sure you are happy. She's even called/emailed while I'm not on assignment just to check in and make sure everything is going well.

    Stephanie works hard at making the contract connections, has excellent follow-thru in getting us on the road, and is always ready to help if it's needed. She even stays in touch when we're between contracts!

    Stephanie really stepped up and helped to pull off a miracle for me, after I was traumatized by another travel nurse company. She believed in me, got it done, and was able to provide me with an assignment that started within two weeks. I really appreciate her straight forward manner, and her compassion and efficiency.

    She is not only top dog, she is my Pit Bull. She has been there for me the last 2 years, through thick and thin. Her friendship and support has kept me with Medical Solutions for almost 2 years. I have not stayed with anyone that long. I do feel as though she is my friend and that she has my back. Smoooch, Steph!

    Stephanie is ALWAYS on top of things, and she is one of the quickest people to respond to my emails EVER! If there's an opening out there for me, she is almost always the first recruiter to let us know. She's delightful and smarter than the average bear! I'll take her as my recruiter any day of the week! Thanks Stephanie, for being the very best!

    I nominate Stephanie for recruiter of the year because she is ALWAYS positive and willing to help me even when I have asked her a million questions. She is quick to return an email or test and always gets the job done. She treats me well and has my back!! She keeps me on track and is always polite when she sends a reminder about something.. I couldn't imagine a recruiter doing a better job than her!!!

    I KNOW Steph truly cares about me as a person. She is honest and sweet. She is thoughtful. When I first started she would talk to me for over an hour just reassuring me everything would be okay. I couldn't ask for a better recruiter! She shares herself with me, so she's not just a coworker, she almost feels like a friend. She promptly answers my many questions. She thanks me and praises me when I work hard. She encourages me all the time. Calls just to check up on me and make sure I'm not too lonely. I could say more but I have 100 words. She's the best and deserves the award!

    I feel that my recruiter is incredibly easy to get a hold of whenever I need her. She does a GREAT job of listening to what I desire in a hospital and finds me exactly that!

    With issues that arose, I did not feel like I was on my own and a solution was reached with no interruptions. To m that makes the difference, they had my back.
