It's like the dream group project you never had in school. You know the one where your team members were intelligent, imaginative and engaged, you aced the project then went out afterwards to celebrate? It's like that - only more fun! We could tell you how great our corporate culture is by listing the perks... amazing coworkers, free midweek yoga classes, company hosted parties... or we could show you.
Anna speaks fluent geek and can translate your IT needs. We aren't sure what we would do without her but we would definitely spend more time banging our heads against our keyboards. We bet you don't know too many beekeeper ballerinas, but if you work for Aya, you can add an awesome one to the list!
There are no photos of Amber alone. Seriously – we had to crop people out of this one. To say she is social is like saying it tends to get warm in her native Arizona. It's a good thing she is in charge of employee experience here at Aya, because it takes her (occasionally salty) sense of humor to manage our cast of characters.
Bret only has good ideas (including trying to write his own bio...) He may be too enthusiastic and uses OMG more often than most grown men. His team says he is the industry master and knows how best to coerce- umm... reward... everyone to ensure their best possible performance. And he has a boat. You should be friends with him.
David Bowie... we mean Neely... is our finance guru. It was hard to find a picture where she wasn't in costume – so we gave up. When she isn't making sure we all get paid and our budget game is on point, she's spiking volleyballs like a boss. She's tall, she can rock a tutu and she's probably cooler than you.
Erin sees things differently. No really. She has two different colored eyes! When she’s not cracking the branding whip and getting Aya’s marketing in tiptop shape, this SoCal native spends her free time on the beach, globetrotting, practicing yoga, wine tasting, saying inappropriate things and solving the world’s problems.
Ryan has been accused of overusing the phrase "crushing it," but that's what our client services folks do everyday. He's also been known to rally the troops for (fun?) activities like looooong obstacle runs and aggressive boot camps. He signs off on a disturbing number of emails with "don't threaten me with a good time," but we forgive him because we like him anyway.
Coffee, Mexican candy, a daily liquor store sandwich and email memes…these are a few of Wes' favorite things. He always ensures our nurses are compliant with all healthcare regulations and his team loves his laid back management style. They think he is, as he would say, "perfs."
Cat lover (we probably shouldn’t lead with that but…it’s a fact) and amateur political strategist, this born and raised Oregonian moved to San Diego for the endless sunshine. Laurel is your friendly Aya Corporate Recruiter and when she isn’t combing the known universe for top-notch talent and promoting Aya as the best place to work, she’s running half marathons, watching football and keeping up with her immaculate manicures.
You can’t out-American Ann. She’s a seasoned camper, a salt of the earth Michigander and her weekends are spent in the stands at baseball games - fingers crossed when her son’s at the plate! During the week she takes care of business as our Director of Credentialing. She’s loved nurses ever since they cared for her middle son who was born 4 months premature. Now with 3 healthy teenage boys (one who’s driving - yikes!) and 3 dogs…and 3 cats, her life’s a zoo, but she loves it.
She may be gluten free, but thanks to Trader Joe’s cauliflower pizza crust…she’s still ready to party. Cory is a superstar in charge of not one but TWO departments at Aya, and somehow she still finds time for things like putting together a fabulous wedding in Singapore, traveling the world and spoiling her pets. If you are one of our travelers you can rest assured that Cory takes care of payroll and contracts the way she takes care of her cats –like a loving helicopter mom. She’s an overachiever with the MBA to prove it. Ginger power!
Julie loves her adopted hometown of Nashville. Music City pride is most evident in her rabid Predator fandom. In fact, if you missed the Stanley Cup you can still catch the play-by-play on her Facebook page. And she brings that same passion to her work managing the Aya Partner Network. She keeps herself busy, and her adorable son just took his first steps, so this new mom is about to get even busier!
You may already know Tracy... she has probably friended you on Facebook. Her hobbies include wine cork art, comedy blogging and dancing enthusiastically. Tracy's job is to make sure our nurses, therapists and allied healthcare professionals are 100% happy traveling with Aya. We can't think of anyone better suited to that task!
You’ve made it this far so you probably already know that we are one of the largest travel healthcare staffing agencies in the country. You know that we have offices in the coolest California cities (San Diego, Sacramento, LA) and for East Coat fans… Palm Beach! You know that we take care of our healthcare travelers and client facilities like no one else. What you might not know is that when you work with Aya you work with family. We hustle our tails off together one minute and hit a happy hour the next. We are always looking for hardworking, ambitious people who have the drive to advance their careers and we do everything we can to reward the efforts of our bright, talented employees both professionally and socially. At Aya, we set and exceed ambitious goals, but we are so much more than just work.
There are lots of options to stay healthy and fit when you work at Aya, and pretty much everyone here takes advantage. We offer FREE yoga and boot camp twice a week each and we have a staff nutritionist always on call. Our kitchens are stocked with healthy food... but we promise no one will snack shame you if you drink a soda or eat a few Cheetos. Not much at least.
We take time to honor our accomplishments – which gives us frequent cause to celebrate! We host quarterly social events that run the gamut from bowling nights to wine tasting. We know how to throw a party.
We know that we are lucky to have amazing jobs that afford a lifestyle free of need. At Aya we give back to those who haven't been so fortunate. We organize frequent volunteer events, hold donation collections and in general promote a philanthropic spirit around the office.
