Tasha Merced-Smith: Tasha is amazing! She is engaged in all aspects of the recruiting-hiring process. She is acutely aware of our most immediate needs and works with local leaders to ensure we are all doing what we can to pull candidates through. She is proactive in her recruiting techniques, and she has a great understanding of the tools/resources that work in our region. She never hesitates to bring new ideas or challenges to the table for discussion. Tasha is a vital part of Mississippi’s continued success. We would not be where we are without her! We are blessed to have her on our team!

Cassandra Donovan: Cassandra has been amazing. Before Cassandra, we had some challenges with our therapy recruiting. Cassandra jumped in and started producing immediately. Cassandra is very aggressive in her sourcing. She communicates very professionally with the leaders; she has the ability to think critically through any challenges we have in the market. Our therapy recruiting went to a different level when Cassandra joined our team! We are thankful and appreciative of the work she does each day to fill the open positions! Cassandra is a vital part of the Mississippi team, and we would not be where we are today without her!

Kaitlyn Tatum: Kaitlyn is an amazing recruiter. We don’t work as much with Kaitlyn as we do with Tasha and Cassandra, but when we need her, she is always there! She works diligently for any open positions! Kaitlyn is very organized and ensures we are all working together timely to fill the open requisitions. Kaitlyn plays a vital role in the team, and we would not be where we are without her! We are blessed to have Kaitlyn on our team!

Amber Williams: Amber has recently joined our team. We have not worked with her very long, but we know that she will step in and do all she can to ensure the open reqs are filled timely and with great talent.

Ashley Fuchs: As the Executive Director, it is great to have such a strong recruiter as a partner. She is responsive, receptive, and open to trying whatever we can to bring in qualified candidates.
