About Lara

Lara has over 19-years’ experience in healthcare recruiting, 6 dedicated to travel nursing. Through a family tragedy, she found her passion for nurses and helping them in their careers. Lara prides herself on taking her time to understand what each nurse is looking for, and how to best support each individual traveler. She loves that TNAA offers benefits that protect her nurses, like paid sick leave. Outside of work, Lara is just as caring; she’s involved in horse rescue. When she’s not gardening or working with animals, you’ll find Lara cheering on New England and Boston sports.

"My recruiter Lara was amazing at her job! This was my first travel assignment and everything went so smoothly from the move, paperwork, onboarding, hospital orientation, and pay! I always knew upfront what to expect, was given all my options and she saw the whole process through. Plus, she continually kept in touch to make sure things were going well. She is encouraging, kind, truthful, and an amazing advocate for the travel nurse.”
