Each month, the PassportUSA International Employee Supervisor Team selects one or two spectacular A-players on assignment to showcase their journey. We asked our healthcare professional to share his or her story of perseverance, adjustment and professional growth.
Lorelie is from the Philippines and is currently working at a client facility in Virginia. She has been working in her field for 7 years and has been with PassportUSA for almost one year.
Why did you decide to become a registered nurse? “Honestly, I just joined the bandwagon! My friends, and even friends of friends, were all enrolled in nursing school. I grew to love nursing as I learned more about it in nursing school. This has been one of the best decisions I have ever made.”
Before coming to the U.S., where did you practice your profession? “I have worked as a nurse in the Philippines. I worked in several hospitals in Cebu in the ER and medical wards.”
Why did you want to come work in the U.S.? “Just like many others, I sought greener pastures. I wanted to work in a place where all my actions and hard work are compensated well.”
How did you first hear of PassportUSA? “I first heard of PassportUSA through my friends at work. They referred me to the company and then PassportUSA contacted me for an interview, and the rest is history.”
How is your experience working with your PassportUSA International Employee Supervisor (IES) so far? “My IES, Hunter is amazing. Since day one, he has been extra helpful, always encouraging, and has been my problem solver. He regularly checks in about my well-being and my work life.”
Would you recommend PassportUSA to other people and why? “Yes! PassportUSA helped me realize my dream to come to the U.S. and experience life on the flipside. It has been smooth sailing since then.”
How does working in the U.S. differ from your healthcare career abroad? “Working in the U.S. is different from my last job because the U.S. hospital setting is very advanced. I’ve adapted to the technology to successfully do my work.”
How have you grown professionally? “I have learned to be more independent at work. I think more before I act and learned that experience is the key to success.”
What is your favorite inspirational quote? “When the going gets tough, the tough gets going.”
