Hi, I’m Ashley! I have worked in the healthcare setting for 10 years. I started my healthcare career in acute care hospitals focused on the patient experience, then onto Employee Engagement, and finally landed hospital staffing and recruiting for internal & external resource staffing pools. I decided to join QCI in March 2022 because I truly believe in what the company stands for and my new position would still allow me to continue to identify staff for hospitals and place healthcare professionals into a rewarding positions nationally. I love helping people and love knowing I made a difference in some way each day.
When I am not working I love doing anything outside (I moved to Florida from Minnesota and now would NEVER go back). I enjoy paddle boarding, surfing, fishing, lobstering in the Florida Keys and most of all spending time with my amazing son. “There are no great things, only small things with great love”
