What excited you about your role with Universal Pediatrics?  Being part of the Talent Acquisitions team, I am always looking for the perfect match between a nurse or CNA with a client and their family. Everyone is unique, and I want the best for all involved. My role is a bit like a puzzle. Once all the right pieces are put together it can create a beautiful picture. I also enjoy educating new applicants about our Agency, building positive relationships and helping our clients receive the best care.
