About Paul
Paul's Bio

I've been in the healthcare industry for over 17 years. I first started off my career as a Direct Support Professional (CNA) working with developmentally disabled adults for an agency in Brookings, SD. I was later promoted to Residential Supervisor. I also freelanced for teaching AHA BLS to nursing students at South Dakota State University. After 8 years working in that field I moved to the great state of Colorado! I landed a job at University of Colorado Hospital in Aurora. My title was Patient Resident Liaison. I was basically a non-clinical case manager for most units within the hospitals, helping expedite discharges and planning for care after the hospital. After two years of working for UCH, I decided to try the recruitment side of things. It wasn't something I planned to do, it just worked it self out that way. Which I think happens for most recruiters.

I've been recruiting since October of 2015 and I've worked for two other companies other than Lead Health, one mid-size and one very large travel agency. I've learned a lot working for those two companies and they have led me to my home here at Lead Health :) To me healthcare recruiting isn't a job, its a career. The satisfaction I received while in direct patient care I now get helping new and experienced travelers. I get the opportunity to help them find jobs across the country, while sharing the good, bad, and ugly to help them pick the right assignments.

I value quality over quantity and taking the extra time it take to make sure my candidates understand how things work on the back end. I also value honesty and providing an open current behind the scenes to my travelers. There shouldn't be anything left on the table, good or bad.

Fun Fact. I've met over 35 of my travelers in person since recruiting!

Why I love to recruit
The satisfaction I use to find in direct patient care I have now found with helping new and experience travels finding jobs across the country and sharing the good, bad, and ugly with them.

When I'm not working I like to
Spending time with my wife and sons. Cooking, BBQ, exploring new places to eat. Exploring beer and bourbon/whisk(e)y. Try to get skiing in when I can. And I love to get down on some video games (xbox).

About Paul Ulrich:

Paul is a closer. Most people understand what that label means. He is open, available, honest with feedback, and proven himself to be persistent and provides results when in hot pursuit for a new contract. I have yet to experience an unplanned "downtime" between contracts--which I am very grateful for. I believe that this is in large part because Paul and I will begin conversations fairly early about what criteria I have for the next job and what the market will pragmatically provide. This open dialogue-and I do have to admit that my history of following through when he suggest I do something-has benefitted us both. I have not plans to look elsewhere for any of my travel needs because they are fulfilled here. What's more, his actions and networking really how the quality of the people at Lead. I feel stoked to be a part of this company.

About Paul Ulrich:

Paul is exceptional. He listens to the point where he could probably bill for “life coach pay”! He doesn’t push hard or rush me into assignments and definitely doesn’t offer me assignments that don’t meet my needs. That is HUGE! It is so nice to feel heard and be able to work with someone you feel has your back! Hope this assignment goes well and that we work into retirement together!

About Paul Ulrich:

I’ve only ever worked with Paul as a recruiter but I have to say my experience has been exceptional. I’ve heard all kinds of stories when it comes to recruiters so having one who truly cares about your well-being means a lot. I can always count on him to be honest with me and he’s literally always available to talk when I need him. Couldn’t have had a better first experience
