Name: Keith Barnes
Job title: Recruiter
Why did you choose Atlas MedStaff?
I was referred by one of the original employees and a long-time childhood friend. Through doing my homework I quickly found that Atlas was on another echelon in the RN staffing industry. They empower their people to run their practice in their own way and promote individuality. They are family oriented, flexible, and take care of their employees… which includes their nurses. They are constantly looking to better their offering and processes to promote better business for all parties involved. Most of all they do business the way it should be done with compassion, ethics, and focus on people.
Married to my beautiful wife Cecilia and we have 4 children.

My Leilana Ruby is 4 and my only daughter (beautiful little diva princess filled with fire and sass). Lastly my little Cruz who is almost 2 (my gets into everything adventurer that is always smiling and loves life).

Coaching youth sports, watching sports (Husker and Packers football especially), spending time with family and friends, drinking good beer and wine, eating delicious food, camping, boating, fire pitting, reading about history and ancient wonders, have an affinity for cheap sunglasses, love working with my hands, working on old cars and machinery, gardening, playing video games with kids, love music, live performances, getting some "me time” which is hard to do with 4 children, and really anything that entails having a good time that doesn’t get me in trouble with law or the wifey.
Any other information you want to share:
I genuinely love meeting new people, connecting, and learning about their story. There is a lot you can learn from other walks of life and their experiences. Prior to becoming a recruiter, I spent 10 years working as an Investment Consultant in the financial field…building long term relationships with clients and helped people plan for the future.
I come from a large family…my mother was one of 14 children and father was one of 12.
Top 3 things on your Bucket List:
1. Take a guided survival retreat in the wilderness...maybe naked and afraid?
2. Travel and see the ancient wonders of the world
3. Make sure all my children grow to be good people and have everything they need to be successful.
