PRESS RELEASE: Vanessa Campbell Promoted to Recruiter

Portland, OR—03/6/2020—EmPower HealthIT, a Certified Woman Owned (WBENC) staffing business specializing in recruiting within the Technology and Healthcare industries, is proud to announce the promotion of Vanessa Campbell to Healthcare Informatics Specialist.

Vanessa started with EmPower three years ago, as a Payroll Specialist, with the intention of staying focused in accounting/payroll. She did have previous staffing experience,yet was successful in the accounting role for the company. As the business changed, and the need for more hands-on recruitment throughout the team increased, Vanessa decided to take a leap of faith and found herself in a new role. A few months into a staffing specialist role, she discovered a hidden talent and decided to continue pursuing recruitment as a career path. After weeks of training with our senior recruitment team, Vanessa has been promoted to a Healthcare Informatics Specialist and has already added tremendous value in recruitment.

“I have been working at EmPower HealthIT for three years and it’s been quite the journey! I started out as a payroll specialist and loved my day to day duties and the company culture. As the needs of the business changed, so did my responsibilities which I happily embraced. I’ve juggled my payroll duties while helping source talent and managing compliance. It’s safe to say that my day-to-day was exciting and always kept me on my toes. The growth and opportunity provided to me at EmPower, exceeded my expectations throughout my transition from payroll to full cycle recruiting. I’m looking forward to the successes and challenges as a recruiter in Atlanta!”

Vanessa will be moving to Georgia at the end of this week – where she will work remote and represent the organization on the East Coast. CEO Dawn Whitney shared a few words on Vanessa:

“We are extremely fortunate to have Vanessa as a part of the EmPower family. She has had tremendous growth in her 3 years with us and is one of the most adaptable people I have ever had the pleasure of hiring and coaching. Since Vanessa has been here, she has had three separate roles and has excelled in each. Her newest role as a Healthcare Informatics Recruiter is the most exciting of all. As she has not only been promoted into this role quickly, but she is spearheading the opening of our new East Coast office in Atlanta this Spring! She will be a strong presence for us in recruitment and in business development in Georgia, cultivating new relationships to continue to add to the growth of the organization. We will miss her sense of humor, quick wit and positive, inspiring energy in the office, but we are thrilled to see her grow and expand in this new role”.
