Meet Our Hospitals and Clinics Team
Hello! My name is Andrea and I am just at the start of my career in HR! I had been working in Recruiting for 3 ½ years before starting with the University of Utah Health Hospitals and Clinics. I am the recruiter responsible for a variety of positions including chaplains, clinic techs, Facilities Management, outreach, sterile processing, Case Management and Health Plans/Utilization Review.
U of U Health offers opportunities for growth and career-enhancing experiences for people of all backgrounds. I was born in Mexico and moved to Utah at a young age. Growing up here has given me many opportunities that I am extremely grateful along with some of the most beautiful scenery.
We welcome you to be a part of the team and are delighted to be a part of your career path and journey! Please take a moment to introduce yourself.
Hi! My name is Anjelica, but most people know me as Jelly. Originally from the coast of northern California, I love the ocean and will always look for a reason to take a vacation to a beach. However, I have found myself happily landlocked in the beautiful Uinta Mountains for the last 15 years. Autumn is my favorite season, not because of the pumpkin spice lattes, but because the hiking is magical when the trees start to turn vibrant shades of red and orange. My family and I are always up for an outdoor adventure.
I recently joined the team as a nursing recruiter for U of U Health’s ICU and Acute Care Units. I love witnessing the impact that our employees have on patient care and the relationships built with each department.
The diversity and culture at U of U Health Hospitals and Clinics are unmatched and it makes for a uniquely wonderful environment to work in. Whether you are continuing your passion for healthcare or starting a new adventure in your career, please reach out and introduce yourself! I would love to chat!

We have a huge blended family with sons daughters, bonus sons, daughter-in-laws, grandpuppies, and grandkids. We are huge football and rugby fans. CTR (Choose the Red..Go Utes).

Hello, I’m Dominique, one of the Talent Acquisition Specialists on the team. I assist the recruiters in screening potential new hires identified, passing them along throughout the hiring process, and initiating their onboarding before New Employee Orientation.
Coming from a southern family, I have always had a love of cooking. Before I started with University of Utah Health, I have been running my own pie business for a little over two years called Pies the Limit. What started out as a hobby became something I envisioned leaving my future children one day to help build their own legacy.
