Speaking of…Brian Hurley
Working in a profession dominated by 96% females could be intimidating. But Brian Hurley’s only complaint? That he has little interest or input to lunchroom conversations. Brian is an extremely versatile SLP currently on his 4th travel assignment with Advanced Medical, working in both skilled nursing and acute settings. His recruiter raves about Brian and his sense of adventure, noting, “Brian is adventurous, highly skilled, and just an all-around great guy to have on your team. I’m lucky to work with such an awesome individual. Brian has an excellent sense of humor, and I’m always excited to check in on Fridays to find out where he’s going that weekend for a bachelor party, ski trip, Vegas trip, you name it. He is a traveler in EVERY sense of the word.” We are so happy to be able to feature another fantastic SLP like Brian as Better Hearing and Speech Month comes to a close. Thanks Brian!
