Nice to Meet You!I am a Senior National Recruiter for Advanced Therapy with over 20 years of experience recruiting, staffing and mentoring throughout the USA. I provide staffing solutions for PT, PTA, OT, COTA, SLP, and SLP-CF therapy specialties. I am dedicated to forming long-term partnerships with a focus on quality and integrity, while working to match each of my Travelers with medical facilities that meet their monetary, geographical, and clinical experience goals. At one point in my career, I was a Regional Manager for Apple as part of the team that launched at that time the new concept stores, which is the Apple Stores you know today. Also, in another point of my professional career, I was directly responsible for well over 300 employees at one time! I am very passionate in my work.
Fun FactBorn and raised in Pittsburgh, I now reside in Florida. I love to fish, specifically onshore shark fishing. Not surprisingly, my favorite food is Sushi. I love to cook (stuffed artichokes and eggplant parm are my specialties) and actually learned how to make sushi under a master sushi chef.
What My Travelers Have to Say
- I appreciate that Kris is available to answer my questions through phone calls and emails on a daily basis. At the end of each week, he calls me to touch base and discuss the work week. Kris also connected me with wonderful therapists who I can use as resources to develop my own clinical skills! I am grateful for this so I can feel confident with my service delivery. Kris has taken special consideration for my own clinical goals throughout recruiting/placement process.
- Kris has been great to work with since day one. This company was the first that I worked with as a travel therapist and Kris made the transition into travel work easy. I had a lot of questions and he was patient and thorough in his response which took some of the pressure off during the transition. Thank you Kris for your hard work!
- I am an experienced therapist but new to traveling. Kris has really helped me feel confident with all of my placements and is always able to find something that works for me. I never need to worry when Kris is working with me on the best options available.
- Kris has been great! He has gone above and beyond to find jobs for me. He’s made himself available for me to be able to contact at all hours of the day, especially since I’m currently working midnights at a factory and have a crazy sleep/wake cycle. He takes into consideration where I’m at in life and also what my goals are as a therapist just in general and also when it comes to finding the right job for me. Thanks Kris!
- Kris has always been there for me. I call him anytime and he helps me with any need I have. He is very dedicated and helpful to the fullest. I have called Kris just to say hello if my day at work is not not going well. He always makes me feel better. If you want a trusted recruiter,Kris is the professional to take care of you.
- Kris is very polite and professional every time you talk to him, which is a great quality of a recruiter. But, what I feel sets Kris apart from other recruiters I’ve worked with is that every Friday he calls you to check up on you and see if you need anything. During that phone call he talks to you as he was a friend checking up on you. I have recommended Kris to just about any other therapist that has asked me about traveling.
