A prominent member of Staff Care’s physician recruitment team, Kristy Guillem has been with the AMN Healthcare and Staff Care family since 2006, when she began her recruitment career with Med Travelers, Staff Care’s sister company. The Staff Care Locums Link Blog recently spoke with Kristy about her career, life, family, and what she loves about working with Staff Care.
“I grew up in Fresno, California, and then went to San Diego State and graduated from there,” Kristy told us. Kristy then moved to Texas, where she took a role with Med Travelers in 2006 before transitioning to Staff Care in 2009.
“When I began working with Staff Care, I started with the surgery team and have been with this team ever since!” she said. “I enjoy the people and atmosphere — we have a good group of people here!
“Being able to help staff hospitals and patients is what I enjoy most about working in the healthcare industry,” Kristy added. She’s also motivated by the great perks of the Staff Care’s recruitment goals (where she scored a trip to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico earlier this year for her exemplary performance).
“Cabo was a great experience,” she said. “It really motivated me, and made me never want to be less than number three on our team so I can attend that trip every year.”
A Love for Family & Traveling the World
Kristy currently lives just north of the Dallas-Fort Worth area in Lantana. When she’s not working hard recruiting for Staff Care, you can find her spending time with her two children, Izzy and Grayson.
“Really, outside of work is all about my family,” she told us. “I definitely couldn’t live without them. We spend a lot of our time boating, camping, and horseback riding.”
Dovetailing with the world of locum tenens work and its opportunities for physicians and practitioners to experience new parts of the country, Kristy loves to travel, too; when we asked what career she’d pursue in an alternate world, she said: “I would be a pilot because you can travel the world!”
