I have had the pleasure of working with whom I feel is the BEST recruiter in all of Aya - Anvy Crowley! They really lucked out by having her on the Aya team! She made my transition into the travel healthcare world a breeze. She is responsive, friendly, hard-working, and honest. Communication was always on point and she never left me stranded or misled me. I could always count on her to advocate for me during my assisngments and help me find the best match for my next destination. I look forward to keeping on working with her!

Stephanie Eng is the most incredible recruiter I have ever worked with. She will be the only recruiter I’d ever choose to have by my side through all of the trials of traveling. She has had my back and guided me every step of the way without hesitation. No matter the different hospitals and long shifts/contracts shes always been my biggest ally. I am beyond grateful to her for making me feel heard and being a friend to me. I would recommend Stephanie without hesitation to anyone looking to be a travel nurse. She truly is a genuine, kind, thoughtful, determined, reliable and just an all around beautiful human being. She is without a doubt one of AYA’s biggest assets and anyone would be lucky to know her:)

Aya has been great! I’ve always wanted to try traveling but didn’t know where to start. My recruiter, Monica Hamilton, made the process easy and gave me the confidence to jump in! Not only did she help me find jobs in the areas I wanted to explore, but she was also more than willing to connect me with the right people when I had questions about payroll, benefits, and housing. Highly recommended

This is my 1st assignment with Aya, but when I tell you it has been a great one, believe me. My recruiter is Brooke Kirkpatrick. She worked so diligently to get me placed at my current assignment. I have worked for several companies, but none come close to the pay, incentives, and the quality of recruiter as I have with Aya and Brooke. Brooke has been upfront and honest with me about everything. I feel that she has my back if any issues arise while I'm on assignment, all I have to do is call her. She takes the time to just call and check on me; I truly appreciate that. If you're looking for a company that will go the extra mile, look no farther than Aya. I'm telling you, you'll be glad you did.

**10/10 recommend ASHLEY PACHECO if you are looking for an awesome recruiter**I don't ever write reviews, but there is no way I could not talk about how truly AMAZING my travel nurse recruiter Ashley Pacheco was. There is a reason she was my very first and only recruiter throughout my time traveling. I felt like I was working with a friend who I'd known forever, not just a recruiter. From the moment she reached out to me, throughout the entirety of my contracts, she was always very reliable, attentive to detail, extremely personable, and so easy to work with. Ashley would take the time to call and check in with me on how my contract was going and was very available if I ever needed anything. She would always listen to what I was interested in from a contract and worked very hard to accommodate my preferences and find me a spot she felt I would love not just woking in but also living, which was so important to me. Ashley made the entire traveling process so easy and smooth for me, and her transparency left me feeling very secure and at ease if I ever had any questions or concerns about my contract. I got so lucky to have worked with such a great recruiter and feel it is only right to highly recommend her to any of my nurses interested in traveling! Truly one of the best!!!Laura Mustata

Amanda Piela has been my recruiter with Aya for over a year now. She is so personable, professional and easy to talk to! She responds quickly, and always helps me find the answer to any questions. I feel supported and heard! Very grateful for her!

I know experiences with travel agencies differ, and a lot of those differences depend on the recruiter. My recruiter with Aya, Jason Guthrie, substantially outshines other recruiters across the board no matter their affiliation. Working with Aya can be difficult, but Jason made it smooth, efficient, and worthwhile through his attention to detail and his quick response time. He is also just an all around nice guy and super easy to work with. I am very grateful to him and have no plans to work with any other recruiter at Aya for as long as I travel with them.

I have been working for Aya is September 2023 until now (March 2024). And I had the best recruiter Jason Guthrie. When I first started, he quickly got me into Vascular tech position in Albuquerque, NM. So fast! I couldn't believe it! Automatically, making me feel like, a true hot commodity. Giving me the confidence I needed. To continue to do travel ultrasound. I've worked with other recruiters. But I only felt safe and informed with Jason, like he really cared. He explained things and repeated them without judgment. Aya has been a great experience due to the fact that I had Jason has my recruiter.

First time travel nurse and I needed someone to walk me through this stressful period prior to getting my first contract. My recruiter, ROBERT JOHNSON, has been soo communicative and responsive throughout this whole period! He explained the process and answered all of my many questions, definitely recommend him to all travel nurses looking for someone that is really going to advocate for them!

I’m a new travel nurse and I honestly don’t have enough good things to say about my recruiter Katie. She was very dedicated and accommodating throughout the whole process. She went above and beyond when it came to explaining contracts as well as what the process would be like. If it wasn’t for her I don’t think I would’ve started traveling and now I love it! If you’re a nurse looking for a change I’d recommend trying out traveling but overall I’d recommend it while working with Katie!

My recruiter, Jared Woolworth, has simply been incredible. I was nervous to make the switch to travel nursing but Jared has made my experience stress free and enjoyable. His expertise and great communication skills have ensured that I have been satisfied with every assignment so far. I am now totally confident with this lifestyle and I owe much of that change to Jared’s hard work and patience. Overall, my travel nursing experience with Aya has been a 10/10 and Jared is without a doubt the reason why.
