MedPro Healthcare Staffing Recruiter Spotlight: Helen Guzzi, Personal Journey Guide

A native of Toms River, N.J., Helen Guzzi grew up in South Florida with her siblings. She graduated from Florida State University (FSU) with a degree in English Literature and a master’s degree in Management from Nova Southeastern University (NSU). The recently married MedPro International Placement Guide, who also has a rescue dog, Fitzgerald, used to teach high school English. She knows the kind of dedication it takes to excel at any task, especially in the industry of healthcare recruiting.

“MedPro celebrates your hard work,” Guzzi stated. “It is important to be driven and remain focused on the big picture. You may get overwhelmed at times, though remember why you started this journey in the first place. I give my MedPro International ‘Explorers’ the same advice.”

Guzzi’s mother is a nurse from the Philippines, and she arrived via a recruiting agency. She honors her mother’s journey in serving MedPro International ‘Explorers’ and providing as much support as possible.

“I love working with my team too,” said Guzzi. “We are all always bouncing ideas off of each other, working together, finding solutions, and celebrating each other’s successes as well.”
