As a healthcare recruiter, helping doctors, nurses and other medical professionals to achieve their career goals has been a most rewarding role. As such, I've impacted a number of medically underserved communities, by attracting qualified healthcare providers to areas where quality medical care may have otherwise been unavailable.
After so many years of helping other medical professionals to find their dream jobs, I can finally say I've found MY ultimate dream job, as your Health Careers reporter. I hope you have enjoyed reading my articles as much as I have enjoyed writing them and helping healthcare professionals navigate their careers.
