EmPower Spotlight: Maddie Garrett

Meet Maddie, our nurse recruiter who is also a nursing student! Hoping to enter the world of postpartum nursing after she graduates with her BSN in 2018, Maddie works part time recruiting during the school year. Her witty personality keep us on our feet!

How long have you worked at EmPower? Just celebrated my one year anniversary in August. ☺

What is your favorite thing to do when you aren’t at work?

Brunch, candle-shopping, coffee runs, applying a facemask, Netflix binging, adding things to my Amazon wish list, meals with my family, organizing, and re-organizing my room, surrounding myself with friends and constant laughter.

What do you love about your job?

You know the saying, “Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.” That is quite literally how I feel about working at EmPower. The culture we’ve created is nothing like any other company I’ve known. A culture of transparency, mutual respect, passion, dedication, positivity, growth, adaptability, and purpose. I am continually inspired by those I work with, and honestly, I don’t think any other company has as much workplace laughter as we do.

In regards to the nurses I work with, I am honored to engage with such amazing, caring healthcare professionals. I get a glimpse into a world that I can join once I pass the NCLEX (and have at least two-years staff experience).

Oh, and did I mention I get to work with my best friend?

Where can you be found on a Friday night?

The library (sometimes), exploring Portland bars, having a night in with friends, or just asleep by 8.

Where is somewhere you’ve always wanted to but never had the chance?

South Africa!

You have a week off from work and other responsibilities…where would we find you?

On the beach, with a margarita in hand. Can I say that?

Coke or Pepsi?

DIET coke, with a lil’ lemon.
