Andrea
Recruiter

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 for all medical assistants in the organization.

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.

Becca
Recruiter

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, phlebotomists, endoscopy technicians, and neuropsychology technicians. 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.

Ben
Talent Acquisition Associate

I am excited to start my Human Resources career with University of Utah Health Hospitals and Clinics. I graduated with a bachelors in Psychology from BYU-Idaho. My family bleeds blue, but I have found that my blood, like yours, is red. I am from Washington, so being in the valley with the beautiful mountains reminds me of my home. Outdoor recreation and sporting activities are my bread and butter.

I enjoy helping people feel important and needed. As the Human Resource Associate for the Talent Acquisition department, I specialize in the onboarding process assuring a slick transition from a job offer to the first day of new employee orientation. Here at the U of U Health, I feel like I make a difference. Please take a moment to introduce yourself.

I am a recruiter for the departments of Perioperative Nursing (OR, PACU, Short-Stay), Social Work, Chaplains, and Pharmacy. U of U Health is such a welcoming, diverse environment and I’m so happy to be part of it. I grew up in Utah and there’s honestly nowhere else I’d rather be. Utah has so many beautiful, unique destinations nearby, it’s amazing being in the middle of it. If you’d like to join the team at U of U Health, take a moment to introduce yourself!

Recruiter

My favorite part of recruiting is listening to a candidate’s story and finding a great work opportunity to help make their interests, goals, and dreams a reality while adding value to patients and my organization. Being able to support this in a healthcare environment is very rewarding as the work being done makes a difference in people's lives. I am a very proud grandmother of three young grandboys and a recent surprise transplant from the Pacific Northwest. I was told a few months ago that my family was moving to Utah and that the 3rd grandbaby was going to be born early 2020 (he has arrived!) On a trip to visit them in Utah, I fell in love with the majestic snow-capped mountains and the stunning desert of Moab and decided to follow my family here. We now live in a home that was designed for multigenerational living that gives the whole family the opportunity to thrive and support each other while maintaining separation of space. We have found Utahns to be warm and friendly and very family-oriented and are having a great time exploring the many indoor and outdoor activities Utah has to offer. I have worked in healthcare recruitment for many years and I am now thrilled now to be part of the University of Utah Health’s Talent Acquisition/Recruitment team. I am currently supporting all modalities of Radiology as well as Patient Relation Specialist positions. Please take a moment to introduce yourself and tell us your story!

I have the privilege to recruit for the Sleep Wake Center, Pulmonary/Respiratory care, Outreach team, and Rehabilitation. 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.

Justin
Recruiter

Hey! I’m Justin, a recruiter for the University of Utah Health. My responsibilities include recruiting in Women’s and Children’s, Cardiology and Cath Lab, Case Management, Nursing Capacity, Transplant, Facilities and Engineering, Valet, Supply Chain, Patient Transport and Dietitians. What I love about working with the Talent Acquisition team is meeting new people from different paths in their career. I love to find people their perfect placement in our organization. You get to meet people from all walks of life. There is such a vast diversity of people here at the University of Utah 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.

I am passionate about serving my community and creatively introducing all ages to the variety of non-clinical healthcare careers.

Second to my children, I find great joy in introducing people to the opportunities within this organization because it lights a fire in me. Seriously; connecting with YOU is my thing and I use my creative strategies to do just that! I can't wait to meet you or connect. Please take a moment to introduce yourself.

Recruiter

Hi, my name is Sarah and I am the Recruiter for Health Care Assistants at University of Utah Health. I love being able to find the right fit for a candidate and get them started in their new adventure!

Back when I was joining the Talent Acquisition team at U of U Health Hospitals and Clinics, I was very excited to be a part of an organization with such a great reputation. I started my career in the hospitality industry and found out quickly that I love working with people. I made the decision to follow the HR route and ended up here at U of U Health where people are their top priority!

I am a Utah native and can’t think of a better way to enjoy the Beehive state than to be a part of this amazing organization. I have recently graduated from the David Eccles School of Business within University of Utah and loved every moment.

In my extra time, I love to travel with my husband and teach ballet to kids of all ages around the Utah Valley. This has made it so exciting to take on the Health Care Assistants as I use my connections to be able to be a resource for these kids in their futures.

We are so excited to get to know you and see what you can bring to the table! University of Utah Health is such a great organization with a great team dynamic!
