Video transcript from: 25 Women in Leadership: Pat Drake

We are a medical staffing company. We are the backup team to quality hospitals for RNs. So when hospitals have a requirement because somebody is out, they can’t find a certain discipline, that’s why they would contact our company.

Oh my gosh, I love my job. My particular passion always in whatever I do is the marketing side of what we do. If you don’t continually look at what your market is, if you don’t continually change and grow your company…I firmly think that in this industry, we would have failed.

I love the fact that you can always be creating always developing a company. Every day is different. There is never anything boring about a day at Fidelity.
