Let me introduce myself, my name is Aleshia and I am a Recruiter for our amazing customer service positions across U of U Health Hospitals and Clinics. Although I was born in Kansas, I have lived in Utah all my life. Outside of work I spend my time supporting my 4 and 7 year old daughters at dance, cheer, and tumbling! You can also find me playing softball and flag football with my husband when we are not attending University of Utah football games.

I chose to work at University of Utah Health for many reasons. First, I could influence the exceptional care our patients receive. My background of training and managing in customer service teams gave me a great foundation to identify top talent to join our organization and provide exceptional patient experiences. Second, the presence the U of U has is hard to ignore. We have earned our place as a top company to work for and receive award winning patient care. Who doesn’t want to be part of a winning team! These are just a few of the reasons I joined the University of Utah, I would encourage you to introduce yourself so we can share the opportunities that will be a great fit for you!

My name is Andrea and I love my family, the beach, Disneyland, and tacos. I also love what I do! I am a recruiter and have been on the Talent Acquisition team since 2014. Our team consists of dedicated and experienced professionals with a passion for recruitment. We have a great team dynamic! I love facilitating the search for the ideal candidate and also extending job offers to the top talent. U of U Health is a great place to be. I currently recruit medical assistants, endoscopy technicians, phlebotomists, Huntsman Cancer Hospital nurse practitioners, and physician assistants.

I started back in 2010 with University of Utah Health in a customer service position as I was going to school. Once I graduated from the U of U, I was ready to take on new opportunities and found my way to HR. I feel I am a testament of the opportunity for career growth and development at U of U Health. I encourage you to take your first step toward opportunity, growth, and career fulfillment by submitting your “Introduce Yourself” video.

My name is Becca (with the dark hair). I’ve been in recruiting for more than 12 years and was so excited to be able to join the Talent Acquisition team at U of U Health! Being able to change lives for the better, the way mine has been, is awesome! Working with such a diverse and supportive group of people makes coming to work extremely easy.

I am the recruiter for clinical nurses, rehab, Orthopedic Center, nursing education and informatics. I’m excited to be able to work with these departments and hopefully help a lot of people land their dream job!

I was born and raised in Northern Utah. I’m married and have three beautiful kids, who are always on the go. They play a lot of sports, which keeps us extremely busy. I am a huge sports fan, with NFL being my favorite season of the year. You’ll also find me tailgating at the Ute’s games during the football season. Go Utes!!

Now it’s your turn to tell me about yourself. Please take a moment to introduce yourself.

I have the privilege to recruit for the Pharmacy, Outpatient Nursing, Sleep Wake Center, Respiratory care, University of Utah Health Plans and OND teams. The reason I came to University of Utah Heath and what I love about being here are one in the same—the reputation for patient care. It is a passion and a continuous driving force. We are truly second to none. The team work mentality is phenomenal, and the work life balance is a strong part of the culture here.

University of Utah Health Hospital and its location near the most amazing outdoor adventures is remarkable, whether it is skiing, hiking, fishing, golf, mountain biking, national parks (Google it), entertainment, the list goes on and on… oh and no humidity.

Now it is your turn, invest a few minutes to introduce yourself. This is a wonderful opportunity to share about your passions and interests. It gives you the opportunity to elaborate and present to us what is important to you and why you see yourself as part of the wonderful culture and team that is The University of Utah Health.

Human Resources Associate

I assist with applicants interested in pursuing a career with the University of Utah Health’s Hospitals and Clinics teams. I work with all new hires during their time between their job offer and new employee orientation. What I love about working with the Talent Acquisition team is being part of the onboarding process. You get to meet people from all walks of life. There is such a huge diversity of people here at the U of U Health.

I spent the last 12 years in the United States Army Field Artillery. Knowing that at some point my military career would end, I sought out for something that would extend into the civilian world. This began my work into Human Resources. Once honorably discharged from the United States Army, I looked to start my new career with a respectable company. That is when I applied and was hired at U of U Health. I am so proud that I am a part of this organization.

We’re very excited to get to know all about you. We would love to have you be a part of the University of Utah Health family.

Hello, my name is Lina and I am the recruiter for all health care assistants (CNA) positions with University of Utah Health’s Hospitals and Clinics. Education and health are the two most important pillars for me and my family. I couldn’t think a better organization to work for when I moved to Utah. Working here allows me and my family to continue education and also to be a strategic partner building an amazing healthcare community at the U of U Health.

My husband and I chose to move to Utah from the humid Midwest because of high quality of life, beautiful landscape and safe communities. We enjoy hiking, paddle boards and skiing. Living in the state that is the home for Sundance Film Festival and five national parks in the couple hours of drive, cannot be missed.

If you are ready for “Life elevated”, please send me a short introduction! I will be honored to help you land your dream job!
