The Converdia Crew

Brian Rahman

President and Owner

“What’s the word?” – our fearless leader. Brian is the president and owner of Converdia Health Staffing. Converdia has been a vision of Brian’s since the ripe age of 24 years old. He has dedicated his life to strong relationships with nursing, allied and physician professionals. His recruiting style is unmatched as he recruits everywhere he goes, including grocery stores, on top of mountains and the “occasional” blackjack table. When he’s not in the office, you will find Brian on the lake, spending time with his family and “guarding the couch.” They say culture starts at the top, that’s why we never go hungry – “food pusher” has been awarded to Brian as a nickname. Work hard, play harder is his mantra. All jokes aside, Brian has created a fast, successful business where the bar is always raised.

Braden Rahman

Branch Manager - Fargo/ Nursing Lead Recruiter

Eat, sleep, breathe, golf. We’ll get to golf later. Braden is our Lead Travel guru; he specializes in finding the most qualified candidates for the most sought out travel assignments. He’s also the “go-to” IT guy. Outside of work Braden enjoys lake days, watching sports and leaving work “a little early” for golf. We know never to approach Braden until two cups of coffee have been demolished and/or before 8:30am. He is a true first employee to the Converdia Health Staffing team, building the company from the ground up since 2019. He is knowledgeable, laid back and has tremendous dedication to helping healthcare professionals find perfect assignments. His dedication is easily equivalent to his golf game. The Converdia team wouldn’t be whole without him!

Cody Rahman

Branch Manager - Sioux Falls/ Recruiter

Meet our “Mr. Nice Guy.”   Hard work and great conversations go hand in hand with his approach to recruiting.  No question is left unanswered.   He goes above and beyond to ensure that clinicians find the “best fit”.   Cody is one of our senior recruiters and lead for allied health as well as the Sioux Falls Branch Manager.  When he’s not recruiting, you might find him at the lake, on the rink, field or course, or tending to his varieties of hot peppers.  Don’t challenge him to a spicy food contest because he will win.  Consider yourself lucky if you get a sample of his homemade salsa from his ghost pepper garden.    Because he cares, our team is stronger with him on it.  His strong recruiting background adds value to Converdia and its successes.

Hailey Crosswhite

LTC Lead Recruiter

Meet Hailey, our PRN Lead Queen/Office DJ. Here at Converdia Health Staffing, Hailey manages and staff’s multiple client facilities, manages her team and is always problem solving. When Hailey’s not hunting you down to fill open per diem shifts, she is at the animal shelter, attending concerts or at the dog park with her furry four-legged companion, Dex. One would think someone who does all this work would run out of energy? Hailey’s always full of life, minus right away in the morning. We have learned to let her have a few sips of her daily red bull before we throw things her way! She is an enormous asset to the Converdia team. We don’t know what we would do without her!

Jessica Rahman

Business Office Manager

We have a few queens in the office, but Jessica reigns Queen Bee. She keeps everyone in line when it comes to onboarding, Joint Commission standards and payroll. The only complaint you’ll hear from her is soreness from the previous CrossFit workout. She enjoys being with family, painting/crafting and sunsets at the lake. She gets her drive from coaching women’s basketball for 20+ years. Jessica is the night owl of the office as we often receive emails after 9pm. Her willingness to wear many hats for Converdia to succeed is irreplaceable!

Megan O'Shea

Talent Acquisition & Culture Coordinator

Buddy the Beagle…(not Buddy the Elf)… is Megan’s favorite walking buddy.   When she’s not walking with Buddy you will find her with her hands in the dirt taking care of plants or making flower bouquets.   She is the flower expert on our team!!   Actually, when it comes down to it…..she is an expert on many things.  Just ask her about resume writing and all things human resources.  She has helped craft policy & procedure manuals, press releases and her detailed emails are notorious!  Megan is meticulous and organized in her approach to compliance and onboarding which is key as the human resource specialist.   Her expertise is invaluable and we are so thankful to have her on our team!

Tara Anderson

Compliance Specialist

“Excellence is in the details” G.L. Sullivan’s quote describes Tara to a “T”. She has been a topnotch addition to the HR team at Converdia. Her meticulous attention to detail is so important to her role. With a background in law and experience in healthcare, she’s a perfect fit as a Human Resource Specialist. But, Tara is not all just about work, she loves spending time with family and friends, lake time, traveling and reading. When she isn’t calculating time, auditing personnel files or keeping us up to date on evaluations, you’ll find her hiking in the crisp fall air taking in the beauty of the fall colors or cuddling with her fur babies on movie night.

Kaylee Wiese

Lead Compliance Specialist

Meet Kaylee, the master of efficiency and guru extraordinaire of HR. She is the ultimate team player always willing to lend a helping hand in the office and through her volunteering in the community. Kaylee thrives in the high paced environment in healthcare staffing, but when she’s not at work you’ll find her hiking somewhere, anywhere, especially on the west coast. This globetrotting traveler certainly lives out the motto of the company – “work hard, play hard”. There is a strong alignment between her personal values and the company values of trust, integrity, relationships, and service. She goes out of her way to help the Converdia team reach the ultimate goal of serving others and the community.

Nikita Hunt

Recruiter

Who Dey, who dey, who dey say Nikita will be successful in finding the best placement for her clinicians? We say! Nikita comes to Converdia with recruiting experience in the world of travel nursing. She loves the hustle and bustle of the recruiting role. When she’s not connecting nurses with a great work opportunity, she is cheering on the Bengals and dreaming of traveling to far off places and exploring new spaces. Travel tips are welcome, especially if you’ve been to Jamaica which is on her bucket list. As a Bengal fan, Nikita is “ready to roar” as a recruiter and we are excited to have her as a part of our team.

Jasmine Washington

Sourcing Specialist

The friendly face that greets you in the office is Jasmine.  A person with many talents….she can assist you with all things “compliance” and credentialing. The way she answers the phone is an art form.  How can a person be that cheerful and patient?  I guess because she loves helping people.  Her years of working as a CNA serves her well in her new role at Converdia.  Watch out for her secret competitive streak!  She really likes to win, whether it’s a game of Kahoot or a gingerbread house contest.  Its simple…..being the best (her best) is important to her.  She certainly fits right in at Converdia as our mission is to be the best at serving communities and helping others.

Ross Tasia

Tasia Ross

Recruiter

Who doesn’t love a day of relaxation at the spa and being spoiled with a pedicure and massage.  As a mother of two, Tasia Ross certainly deserves a spa day (and a Crumbl Cookie)!   But, like most mom’s, life is busy doing fun activities with the kiddos & family BBQ’s as well as being a top-notch recruiter at Converdia.  As one who believes she can learn and do whatever she puts her mind to, her move to recruiter has been a successful one.  Tasia’s years of experience as a CNA gives her a great perspective on what travelers are looking for and she won’t stop until she finds the right fit for her team members.  Anyone would be lucky to have her as their recruiter because she truly believes the only way to fail is to stop trying.  Determination is the name of the game.  With this outlook on life, there is no doubt she will visit all 50 states (already at 39), Italy and Egypt.  If she puts her mind to it, it will get done.

Bryan Beckedahl

Recruiter/Allied Lead

Life experiences and connection to purpose often lead a person into their calling in life.  Experiencing chondrosarcoma, a type of bone cancer, and re-learning to walk due to several hip surgeries has forever connected Bryan to health and the world of healthcare.  With years of experience in radiology and allied health, Bryan Beckedahl, lead allied recruiter, is a great resource for allied healthcare professionals.  At Converdia we know a healthy life means pursuing what brings a person joy.  Bryan loves the energy that the fall season brings with all the colors and fresh cool air.  He loves to hunt, camp and fish.  Cooking is most definitely a hobby and passion, especially Asian cuisine.  And photography of incredible places is on his bucket list.  Someday, pictures of a Safari Trip or the Great Barrier Reef will be a part of his portfolio.  Bryan is destined to connect with other allied professionals who are looking to make a difference.  Reach out.  He will listen to you and help you achieve your dreams and find your calling.

Samatha Hendrickson

Samantha Hendrickson

Marketing Intern

Imagine a picturesque hiking trail ablaze with all the colors of fall.  Trees with leaves of every shade of red, orange, and yellow along a winding path that leads to a serene fishing spot.  This would be Sam’s favorite place.

The deep appreciation for the outdoorsy life grew, in part, from spending summers at the family fishing resort in Canada.   Life is busy and crazy for a college student balancing school and work.  As the marketing intern at ConVerdia, Sam helps with social media and content building for marketing.   She is quick to create designs in Canva and helps with promoting Converdia’s mission.  When she isn’t at school or work, you can find her in the local coffee shop meeting up with friends, tailgating, attending country music concerts, doing pilates or yoga, cooking, and baking.  She certainly likes to stay busy.  Some day she will travel to places like Italy, Norway or a safari in Africa.  Until then, we consider ourselves to be lucky that she is a part of our team.

Michelle O'Hara

Recruiter

The buzz around the office is that Michelle, is a keeper!  Well, she’s a keeper in the sense that we’re excited she’s a Travel Nurse Recruiter for Converdia, but she is also a beekeeper!  In fact, she lives on a farm with her family, 2 kids, a dog, Sheila, bees, and chickens.  She absolutely loves being a mom to her 2 little ones. They are her greatest source of pride.  She also loves to spend time at the lake, golfing, cooking, camping, and gardening.  It’s no wonder that she loves the spring and seeing everything “come back to life”.  She is the resident plant whisperer!  It must have something to do with her positive energy!  She lights up an office with her smile and wit, hard work, and also the occasional quote from The Office.  Michelle’s go-getter attitude and team-player approach makes her a great fit at ConVerdia.  She takes the initiative to make things happen.   You definitely want her advocating for you if you’re a travel nurse.

Aisha Arguello

Recruiter

Free time?  You will get a good chuckle from Aisha if you ask her about what she likes to do with her free time.   Outside of her work as a Travel Nurse Recruiter, she’s a mom of 4.  Family time and kids activities make for a very busy “free time schedule”. Home is filled with art projects, her pug, Coco, and delicious smells of favorite recipes.  If you’re lucky enough to get one of her cookies, she must have saved one for you.  It’s an unwritten rule at her house that all baked goods are gobbled up within 48 hours.  Even triple batches disappear like magic.  The ability to balance a busy life is part of the job description for a travel nurse recruiter.   A day in the life of a recruiter means searching out excellent nurses, matching them to their dream job and checking in on the team of nurses in the field.  Aisha’s dedication is invaluable. She cares about each member of her team.  We’re glad she’s a part of the ConVerdia “family”.

Dustin Soash

Director of Therapy

Fall is the perfect season!  It’s not too hot and it’s not too cold.  And, there’s no better way to celebrate fall than with football!  Any football is great, but according to Dustin, the best are the Kansas City Chiefs and the Nebraska Cornhuskers!  All championship teams have playmakers like Patrick Mahomes and Travis Kelce.  These are the difference makers who help to propel a team to the next level.  As the Director of Therapies, Dustin is the playmaker for the Therapies division.  He knows how to “get the job done” and his experience and knowledge will be a driving force to make things happen.   That being said, life isn’t just about work.  Life is about enjoying time with family, his daughter and wife, barbequing, and playing games.  Dustin fits the mold of “work hard, play hard”.  Who knows, maybe he will attend a Super Bowl and watch the KC Chiefs win another championship.   From our at experience at ConVerdia, once he sets his mind to something, he will achieve it.

Pat Gulbranson

Vice President of Provider Services

Fishing, hunting, and outdoor activities with family and friends……these are a few of his favorite things.  He and his wife enjoy watching their kids’ activities and any good sporting event.   Speaking of sporting events, at the office mini-golf Challenge, Pat scored 3 hole-in-ones.  The feat earned him the office championship and the nickname “Putt”.  He is not a professional golfer, but he is most certainly an experienced professional in the world of healthcare.  As the Vice President of Provider Services, Pat’s years of experience and many connections in the healthcare industry will propel our team to greater heights.  He is dedicated to his work and the mission of ConVerdia.  He is a difference-maker and will make a positive impact at ConVerdia, in the community, both near and far.

Anfernee Hale

Payroll Specialist

When looking up the definition of a “people person” you may see Anfernee’s picture next to the words.  His large circle of friends and family spans many states and is a testament to his ability to relate easily to people.  As he puts it, he loves to “help people”.   Originally from Arizona, he moved to MN to play football at Concordia.  Football isn’t his only favorite thing about fall.  He also loves the changing of the colors and the cooler weather.  Nowadays, he’s left the grid-iron and the back flips behind and keeps himself busy crunching numbers at ConVerdia, weightlifting at the gym, frolfing, video gaming, and spending time with his fiance’.   As the Payroll Specialist, his knack of working with numbers and helping people is a great asset to the department.  He is resourceful, tech-savvy, and loves to problem-solve.  The Converdia team is better with him on it! The same spirit of adventure that brought him from Arizona all the way to Converdia will likely leave him to visit the places on his bucket list:  Dubai, Tokyo, and the Super Bowl.
