What do you do at Shearwater Health?
I lead Shearwater’s global nurse recruitment division, which includes sourcing qualified nurses, credentialing them efficiently, and ensuring they are matched to and successfully complete contracts with our great clients.
What makes you passionate about your work?
What makes me passionate about working for Shearwater is that we are changing the lives for nurses and their children and their grandchildren. We impact generations to come, and it is such an honor to be able to do that.
What has been your favorite memory of working at Shearwater?
My favorite memory here was opening the first Shearwater office in Manila in 2002. This project began in 2000 as a discussion in a conference room that started with, “what if we went to the Philippines?” To see it in action 2 short years later with an excited staff and a group of nurses was so fulfilling. And now, 15 years later, it is a treasured memory.
If you could have any superpower, which would you choose and why?
If I could have any super power it would be to fly. To avoid all traffic (especially Manila traffic!) and experience the thrill of soaring through the blue sky would be wonderful.
What is your favorite food?
Some people say that the avocado is the perfect food. Others claim that the banana is the perfect food. They are all wrong. The pizza is the perfect food.
What is your favorite animal?
The gazelle. It is fast and nimble, just like I want our nurse recruitment team to be!
