Karena has more than 11 years’ experience in the healthcare staffing industry and considers it an immense privilege to share in and impact the lives of her nurses. She understands what a large decision it is for nurses to put their careers and livelihood in a recruiter’s hands, and she takes that responsibility very seriously. Karena prides herself in finding the best possible assignments and facilities for her nurses and has been with some of her long-term, loyal travelers through many life transitions. Prior to becoming a recruiter, Karena worked as a flight attendant and a science teacher, experiences that have enhanced her outstanding people skills.

"I love working with these 2 ladies (Karena and Teresa)! One of them is always available to answer any questions or concerns I have in a timely manner. They know what I'm looking for and never offer anything I don't want. They don't pressure me into signing contracts I don't feel comfortable with and they never rush me if I'm not ready to sign or to choose. They are, so far, my only recruiters as I feel they are fulfilling my every need at this time. Thanks for taking such good care of me! "
