Meet "Tami", Talent Consultant

Support Areas: RN Strategy and New Grad Nursing Residency Program serving all three of Asante’s hospitals

As a Talent Consultant, I work to support our nurse recruiters and nursing leaders to create and develop Talent strategies aimed with focus on recruiting and retention. I work directly with our new grad nurses and enjoy talking through their options and providing recommendations as they embark on their nursing career.   What I am most passionate about in my role is developing talent strategies that make a lasting and positive impact on Asante. I have been with Asante for 15 years and love working with people that I can have fun with! Outside of my work, I am most happy when exercising, gardening and spending time with my family and two husky dogs, doing what most Oregonians love to do: camping, boating and mountain biking!

As a Senior Recruiter, I facilitate and manage the recruitment process for nurses and Asante’s leadership. The thing I love most about my job is engaging with top talent nurses across the country and recruiting them to Southern Oregon to help our community. I have lived in Southern Oregon my entire life, and I have worked at Asante since 2018. In my free time I love mountain biking, hiking, camping, cooking on the BBQ with my family and friends.

As a Senior Recruiter, I support Hiring Managers across Asante’s 3 hospitals through recruiting and marketing our Nursing positions. I am passionate about my work and enjoy the collaboration and communication with my Hiring Managers and candidates! A few favorite aspects of my role are creating and building relationships with out of area candidates who are interested in relocating to our area and being an active part of their application process. I also love working with our current nurses to help them explore different specialty areas within Asante. I recently celebrated 31 years with Asante! Outside of work, I love to recharge with friends and family while exercising, having spa days, reading and discovering new local wineries!

Growing up in Southern Oregon, I have mostly resided in the Klamath Falls and in Grants Pass area. Family and baseball are my two of my favorite things in life!

I have been part of the Asante family for 18-years and absolutely love working with the Asante leaders and candidates here at Asante Three Rivers Medical Center (ATRMC). My favorite part of being a recruiter is working closely with talented and motivated candidates and helping them find a perfect fit for them at ATRMC.
