Samantha Fishman, RACR

Senior Leadership Recruiter

Samantha Fishman is a passionate healthcare recruiter. She brings over two decades of
experience to Kirby Bates Associates since joining in 2022 as the Leadership Recruiter for
Interim Leadership Services.

Samantha’s career in healthcare recruitment began as a travel nurse recruiter in the early
2000s where she realized quickly that it wasn’t about how many nursing professionals she
worked with, but the quality of the candidates. Samantha finds that matching qualified nurses
with the best opportunities and seeing the results at the end of the engagement is priceless.
Samantha’s prior experience includes working for HealthTrust/HCA East Florida Division as the
Human Resource Recruiter where she worked with new RN graduates, seasoned nurses, and
wonderful executives. There Samantha learned and grew in her role and formed ever-lasting
relationships.

Samantha earned the Recruiter Academy Certified Recruiter (RACR) designation in 2023.
She currently resides in Atlanta, Georgia with her two children. On the weekends you can find
her on the football field cheering on her son and his middle school football team, and watching
her daughter perform as a cheerleader.
