​​We have a fantastic team of people at Conexus MedStaff! Whether we’re working behind the scenes, over the phone or face-to-face with our nurses and medical technologists, we all have one thing in common: we’re passionate about helping international healthcare professionals realize their dream of working and living in the U.S.

In this article, we’d like to introduce you to our HCP Experience Coordinator, Katherine Nacario.

Helping international nurses access American nursing jobs

Also known as Katie, Katherine is part of the Conexus MedStaff team based in the Philippines. She lives in Manila and has worked in healthcare professional recruitment for eight years. As Katie’s younger brother is currently in pursuit of his dreams overseas, she has an innate understanding of what Conexus registered nurses and medical technologists go through when relocating to the United States.

 

What attracted you to Conexus?

I think it's essential to be part of a company that aligns with my values, and I'm happy to have found that here at Conexus. I am looking forward to being a part of the U.S. journey for our registered nurses and medical technologists.

 

Which Conexus value (passion, integrity, care and support, family, growth, gratitude) resonates most with you and why?

Integrity is the cornerstone of our character. It encompasses being honest, respectful, and unwavering in our adherence to values. Consistently making positive decisions, even in the absence of an audience, exemplifies the strength of our integrity.

 

Tell us about your life outside of work.

I find joy in engaging with books and documentaries as they allow for continuous learning. I also embrace the creative process of cooking as a source of fulfilment.

 

What is a cause that you are passionate about, and how do you give back to your community?

Community service. This encompasses lending a hand to individuals in your vicinity. You have the option to offer your time at homeless shelters, take part in fundraising runs for charitable causes, or contribute to the upkeep of local green spaces. The focus is on creating a positive impact within your community. I recently became part of Brigada Eskwela, where our team actively volunteered our time to perform minor repairs, painting, and cleaning of school campuses.

What is a fun fact about yourself?

I enjoy exploring different cuisines, immersing myself in Korean drama and anime, embarking on spontaneous road trips, and savoring a good cup of coffee. The coffee and chocolate on my desk will absolutely lift my spirits during the day.

 

What is your favorite holiday destination?

I love hitting up beaches like Boracay and Palawan. It's a surefire way to boost your overall well-being. Basking in the sun and breathing in the ocean air is fantastic for your mental health. Taking a dip in the water and staying active ramps up mindfulness and ensures you get in some quality physical activity. I've always dreamed of visiting the city of love, Paris. I'd like to explore the different museums, try out delicious pastries, and take a gondola ride through the canals.

 

What is your favorite quote or motto?

“It is during our darkest moments that we must focus to see the light.” - Aristotle

 

What is the best piece of advice you have been given?

Never stop learning.

 

What is something you find inspiring?

My family inspires me more than anything.

We're thankful for our Conexus team members who are dedicated to helping international nurses and medical laboratory technologists build a life they love in the United States.
