President of Sales & Operations / Co-Founder
As a wellness-focused nurse marketing and recruiting professional with over 20 years of experience, I have a proven track record of serving clients and candidates on both a national and local level. I specialize in matching candidates with the perfect fit and retaining long-term relationships with hospitals and nurses.
MY CLIENT-CENTRIC APPROACH:
My ultimate goal is to help clients build knowledgeable and successful nurse teams by recruiting and screening the best candidates who possess a strong culture, personality, and skillset match. By understanding the unique needs of both parties, I can achieve profitable results and foster long-term partnerships.
HOW I SUPPORT CANDIDATES:
I understand that as a nurse, you may have a strong network, but I have access to hundreds of hospitals and hiring managers across the country. I leverage my knowledge, relationships, and associates to help you find the right fit for your career goals and personal needs.
I offer personalized services such as resume review and advice, ensuring that your skills and experience are highlighted to fit the hiring manager's requirements. I also take the time to listen to your unique needs and desires, then present you with opportunities from the best hospitals across the United States.
Lastly, I'll help you prepare for interviews by providing insights into my client companies, what hiring managers like to hear, and how they conduct interviews. With my assistance, you can approach your interviews with confidence and peace of mind, knowing that you have the support of an experienced recruiter.
Creative Director/Health Coach/
My wellness journey began while training as an Olympic-level gymnast. I realized at age 12 that what you put into your body directly affects what you get out of it.
Studying in the early ‘90s under Kevin Mazeika, Men’s US Olympic Coach, I honed my self-discipline, mental clarity and determination as I refined my athletic skills, allowing me to win and place in state, regional and national championships as I laid the foundation for a healthy life.
After retiring from competition, I spent a decade in advertising working for Fortune 500 companies as an art director. With backstage access to some of the largest names in the packaged foods industry, I was able to get an inside glimpse into how our food is really made: Scientists in state-of-the-art laboratories in lieu of chefs in kitchens, chemicals and beakers instead of natural, fresh ingredients. Horrified to think these mostly artificial products were now the staple of the modern diet, I began planning the next stage in my career—attending the Institute for Integrated Nutrition.
As a Integrative Nutrition Health Coach I learned to guide, mentor and empower fellow humans by providing ongoing support and guidance while setting goals and make sustainable changes that improve health and happiness.
Here at Prana Wellness Group I am dedicated to helping you establish and embrace your individualistic road map to health through mindful nutrition and holistic health coaching. Together, we will find what works best for you in the areas of diet, lifestyle, and exercise in a way that saves your time, money, and confusion.

Director of Sales & Recruitment
I stumbled into the healthcare staffing industry by chance, but once immersed, I discovered that it's one of the most fulfilling ways to contribute to the realm of quality healthcare. For the past 18 years, starting this September, I've dedicated myself to this field, focused on finding exceptional candidates to care for patients and their families during challenging times.
In our industry, every nurse is unique, and that's precisely how we approach our relationship with each of them—individually. Understanding that there's no one-size-fits-all approach to healthcare staffing, we tailor our support to the specific needs and aspirations of every traveler we work with. What sets me apart as a recruiter is my view of the role as an advisor. Most travelers have dreams and objectives, whether it's settling debts, funding their children's education, early retirement, or exploring the world.
I consider myself fortunate to play a part in helping them navigate their employment options to reach these aspirations. I'm here to listen to fears, lend an ear during tough days, and celebrate the triumphs, like paying off a credit card bill or embarking on that well-deserved trip. I recognize that achieving these goals might mean collaborating with my colleagues, and I wholeheartedly support that. Ultimately, my goal is to empower all travelers to succeed in their journey, both professionally and personally.
Let's work together to achieve your aspirations and make a meaningful difference in the world of healthcare.
MSN, APRN, FNP-C
I am a retired Air Force air traffic controller. I have always been drawn to the excitement of something different every day. Nursing provides that for me. It was always a passion I couldn’t pursue until retirement. After I retired, I went back to school and received my LVN license through Weatherford College, shortly there after, I met Bridget in 2008. I worked for her staffing company as an LVN, which gave me the flexibility of my schedule and better pay. This allowed me to go back to school a year later. I received my Associate Degree Nursing, again through Weatherford College. As I continued to work for Bridget for many years in many roles: rehab, MedSurg, telemetry, ER, infusion center, school nurse, etc, I was able to broaden my experiences in nursing and hone my skills. Again, I returned to school and later received my BSN in Nursing and then ultimately graduated with my MSN - Family Nurse Practitioner through UTA as I had finally decided what I wanted to do with my nursing career. All of my nursing degrees were made possible with the flexibility of schedule and excellent pay through Bridget’s staffing agency. I know there are nurses out there who are wanting something similar. Ultimately, I want to help people, both as an FNP and as an entrepreneur. I have known Bridget for 13 yrs and have always respected her work ethic and business professionalism. I am privileged to call her a friend and now a business partner. As a nurse who’s been on the other side, I wouldn’t recommend any other staffing agency. This is truly the best of the best.
