What’s your story, David? How did you get interested in physician recruitment?
I grew up in Irving, so just down the road, and I’ve lived here all my life. After college I started working for Verizon Wireless selling pagers before coming to Staff Care. My brother-in-law played softball with one of the divisional vice presidents for psychiatry, so that’s how I got connected with Staff Care. I didn’t have any experience, or quite frankly any idea what locums was, but I made the transition and have been here ever since!
What do you do for fun, when you're not working? Do you have any hobbies?
I love the outdoors, like hunting and any other outdoor activities. I also love movies - I’m a huge movie fan!
What do you enjoy most about working in the healthcare industry?
Knowing that what we do does make a difference, and knowing that we do has a positive impact on others. That’s really the driving force for me.
What do you enjoy most about your job at Staff Care?
I really enjoy the people I work with in the psychiatry team.
If you could have any job in the world, other than working at Staff Care, what would it be? Why?
I would probably say a chef. I love cooking and trying different things and having people over and seeing them come over and get excited about it.
Tell us about one of your favorite work-related memories.
That’s a tough one. I would probably say seeing the first recruiter that I trained getting promoted. That was really exciting for me being able to truly have an impact in someone else’s future, and he’s been working here ever since.
What's the one thing in your life that you can't live without?
I would have to say my wife.
What is one word to describe yourself and why?
I would say dedicated. I always want to give everything I have to accomplish my goals and never want to disappoint my team members.
