I’ve been a nursing recruiter since 2012 and love partnering with nurses to help achieve their professional and personal goals. What I enjoy most about my job is the ability to build meaningful relationships with the nurses I work with and seeing them grow as we continue to work toward their goals, one assignment at a time.
Each traveler I work with is given my personal cell phone, and I pride myself on being available to them 24/7 (that includes weekends and holidays), even if it’s just to say “Hi” or “Aloha!” I believe it is this dedication and the support of my incredible agency that has made me a successful recruiter. I enjoy paying that success forward to the nurses I work with.
As a recruiter, I’m very honest and transparent. My ability to educate and set great expectations from the start puts you in a successful position throughout the hiring process and your assignments. Don’t forget to work hard and play hard too! You can join Core and hundreds of our travelers on our annual Club CoreMed all-inclusive vacation to find out what Core is really all about.
As for my hobbies, I'm a family man at the core! Most of my time outside of work is spent with my four children. I enjoy volunteering in different organizations my kids are involved in, from Boy Scouts to soccer and everything in between. When I’m not with my family, I enjoy being active by playing golf or hiking the many mountains available here in New Hampshire!
Here’s what some of my travelers have to say about working with me:
Where do I begin? I feel like Derek is more of a friend than a recruiter. He's thoughtful and caring. He often texts me just to say hi and make sure I'm doing well (even when I'm not on contract with him). Recently I had a family emergency and Derek was right there for me. He understood my situation and never put any pressure on me. I don't see myself working with anyone else anytime soon. He's been a blessing to me.
Derek is fantastic and has pulled me out of the fire a couple of times. He's always available when I need him- and when I don't. A fantastic recruiter!!!
From day one Derek has jumped through hoops to make every aspect of my travels amazing for me! He is literally available 24/7 for any concerns, questions or just for support! He checks on me to make sure everything is going well. An amazing people person and truly cares about his recruits! I feel blessed to have such a caring person behind me!
