I’m Junior, and this is My Story
Hi, my name is Junior and I’m a Travel Nurse Recruiter for Centra Healthcare Solutions. I live life to the fullest and I have an amazingly rewarding job that allows me to place nurses throughout the United States. Centra has shown me just how much fun you can have at work. Living the life of a Centurion means to work hard and play hard.
Moving to Florida from New York City was not an easy adjustment. I started off as a barista at Starbucks and quickly became a Supervisor. I accepted this responsibility without a clear cut direction of a career goal but I knew that my zest to help others and the daily challenge that this opportunity offered would be rewarding. The knowledge and experience that I gained at Starbucks helped to catapult me into the healthcare field when I came across a small chiropractic office in South Florida. Little did I know that I would become a part of one of the most successful offices in the wellness industry. I began as a New Patient Advocate, who encouraged patients and their families to be healthy and once again climbed the ranks quickly and became an Executive Assistance in the practice. It was here where my skills were sharpened and I was able to focus into what I really wanted to do and love … to become a Healthcare Recruiter.
At the time, I didn’t have a full understanding of what it meant, but after being encouraged by friends that were already in the field, it seemed to be the obvious route, one that I can excel in and take “helping” to a whole new level. I am able to find individuals with specific skills in the numerous specialties of nursing and pair them in a position where they can help so many! From placing RN’s in remote areas of Alaska with dire needs to urban cities such as DC or Baltimore, where there can never be too many nurses. In my opinion our travel nurses are the best! I am extremely proud to work for a company that has fostered my growth, embraced my love for challenges but overall has given me priceless satisfaction of helping people.
Even though there is never a routine day at Centra, our monthly games and competitions elevate our fun work culture. Beyond that, it encourages the creativity in each and every person. As Centurions, we use that creativity to fuel our craft, the craft of recruiting the best nurse or therapist for the job!
