Advantage Medical Professionals
I have spent my entire working life recruiting people(one way or another). I'm from Gulf Shores, Alabama and enjoy spending time on the beach. My favorite city to visit is Georgetown, Grand Cayman. Dream vacation, Fiji. I've always wanted to fly a plane, it's on my bucket list. For 7 years I led one of the top Executive Search firms in the Southeast. We grew to 13 offices, in 6 states, placing candidates in the hospitality, IT, engineering and medical industries. The firm was sold to a large national company in 2005 and I made the decision to go into the restaurant business. Over the next 15 years, I worked as an operational executive for both Sonic and Hardee's in Tennessee, Alabama, Mississippi and Louisiana.
In 2017, I was chosen to lead one of Louisiana's most ICONIC brands, VooDoo BBQ out of financial difficulty. I spent the next 3 years growing and developing teams and positioning the brand for future growth. Now in 2020, I am back doing what I love, which is recruiting AMAZING nurses and helping our clients provide the best possible care for patients.
Why I love recruiting...
The people process is the biggest challenge any business has. Working as a partner with our clients and helping them help others is what drives my passion for this business.
When I'm not working, I love to...
Spend time on the beach, hang out on the boat and watch ALABAMA FOOTBALL!!
From day one, Rick was awesome! I never used an agency or recruiter before but heard horror stories of canceled contracts, pay discrepancies, and false promises....so I asked A LOT of questions before even submitting my info. Rick answered every question with honesty and integrity, even if the answer was "I'm not quite sure but I will find out and get right back to you." His follow-up was always timely and reliable. I accepted my first assignment and it was truly amazing! Rick was just a call, text, or email away from start to end of my contract. I could always count on his friendly voice at least once a week to check in on me..."Hey buddy, how's it going?!" Best recruiter and travel experience I could have ever asked for!
