Debbi Laatz

Senior Nurse Recruiter

What is your favorite thing about working with nurses?

I love getting to meet new people and learning their stories.   I think nurses are amazingly smart, driven and are passionate about their jobs in caring for others.  It is a pleasure to work with people who are so strongly committed to their life’s work, and I enjoy being able to help them get a great job.

Why are you passionate about this industry?

If we had a million nurses drop out of the sky tomorrow, we still would not have enough nurses to fulfill our country’s healthcare needs.  I have always loved and been fascinated by physiology and biology.   Although I am not a nurse, both my mom and aunt are, and my brother and stepdad are physicians.  Family dinner discussions frequently lead to healthcare issues, and I love that I get to be part of this industry by helping great nurses find great opportunities.

Where is your ideal travel destination?

Akumal, Mexico.  Best honeymoon ever 21 years ago.  Beautiful beach, beautiful water, Mexican beer, a few limes and some fish tacos…I’d be there in a HOT second!

Family? Kids? Pets?

Great husband who’s been my boyfriend for 26 years, 1 amazing daughter, 2 awesome sons, a Weimaraner, a Wheaten Terrier, and a Hemingway Cat

What do you love doing in your spare time?

Hanging and cooking with my family and restoring our 100-year-old house, trying to plant things that live, cheering on soccer games, walking the pups, hitting the yoga studio, and making custom baby bandana blankets.
