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!!
I contacted Rick after talking to another nurse who had traveled and Rick was her manager. I have always been scared to travel and worried about not having as much time w my kids. Rick explained traveling to me and helped me find my first assignment that fit my needs to be able to spend time w my family. Rick not only found the job but literally held my hand through each step of the way to my first assignment. Rick has been more then a blessing to me and my family and I look forward to working w him for years to come!!!
Thank you Rick for what you done for me and my kids!!!
I am currently on my first travel assignment ever. From the time I contacted Rick about working for AMP, he worked diligently at getting things rolling so I could get started. Being a first time traveler, there are a few things that I was unaware of, but Rick made sure I received information and compensation for things that I would have not known about. In addition, this placement has been fantastic and Rick has already gotten 2 contract extensions for me and is continuously working to get the next extension and/or job lined up for me. I highly recommend Rick for your travel job needs!
I am currently on my second travel assignment with Rick as my recruiter and I could not ask for anyone better. He completely understands my work/family balance needs and takes those into account while looking for job opportunities. He answers all of my calls and texts quickly and if he happens to not know the answer always finds it or directs me to the person who can. While I was working my first covid assignment and was terrified of bringing it home to my two little girls he offered encouraging words and guidance and with my blessing he sent me a daily prayer everyday that he knew I worked. I never would have made it through that assignment if it weren't for him.
