Each month, our 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.
Vannetta is from Jamaica and is currently working at a client facility in Texas. She has been working in her field for 11 years and with PassportUSA for almost 1 year.
Why did you decide to become a medical technologist? “I have always been interested in healthcare. I also liked technological equipment. Medical technology is a combination of my two great loves, working with ever-evolving technologies and still contributing to the healthcare of others.”
“I have been introduced to a wider array of tests and equipment. This has significantly increased my knowledge and made me a well-rounded person professionally.”
Before coming to the US, where did you practice your profession? “I worked for ten years in the lab at a hospital for children in Jamaica honing my skills, gaining experience and contributing to the well-being of my patients.”
Why did you want to come to the US? “I wanted to come to the US to broaden my skillset, grow professionally, introduce my kids to another culture, and provide them with the opportunities to achieve their full potential.”
How did you first hear of PassportUSA? “I researched healthcare staffing companies and PassportUSA popped up. I researched the company and was quite impressed and so I applied. PassportUSA reassured me that even while I was residing in Jamaica, they would help make my American dream come through, and they did.”
How is your experience working with your PassportUSA International Employee Supervisor so far? “I want to say thanks to my IES Jamie. She has been amazing and has helped made my transition smooth. She always keeps in contact and keeps me up to date every step of the way.”
Would you recommend PassportUSA to other people and why? “I recommend PassportUSA because they are professional and people-oriented. They strive to help you achieve your goals, are with you every step of the way, and always deliver on what is promised.”
Please rate how likely you are to recommend PassportUSA to other healthcare professionals. “I rate PassportUSA a 10. I am extremely likely to recommend PassportUSA to other healthcare professionals.”
How has your life and your family’s life changed for the better? “Our lives have changed for the better because we now have a greater access to education and sports for us to excel in ways that would not have been possible if we were not here.”
How does working in the USA differ from your healthcare career abroad? “My current facility has more advanced equipment and tests, and there is always the possibility for growth and I find working in the USA helps me maintain a balanced work-life.”
How have you grown professionally? “I have been introduced to a wider array of tests and equipment. This has significantly increased my knowledge and made me a well-rounded person professionally.”
