Meet Our Team

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

Recruiter/Travel Lead

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

Recruiter/Allied Lead

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

Recruiter/Per Diem Lead

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

Human Resources Specialist

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


“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.

Ana Monson


Ana is one of the nicest people you’ll meet!   Friend after friend have come calling for her to be a part of their wedding days (which makes for a lot of weddings!!!)  When she’s not in a wedding you may find her behind the camera taking pictures of special occasions.   She has many hidden talents from photography to social media “queen”.  She’s known to DM nurses on Facebook while looking to find the perfect travel nurse contract.   As a recruiter on our travel team, she aims to find the ideal match for both nurse and facility.   Her work ethic is second to none!    Whether she is working with her staff or working with the team at the office, she is always pitching in to help where help is needed.  She is simply the best!

Nikita Hunt


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.

Kaylee Wiese


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.

TJ Anderson


If you combine a trip to see a University of North Carolina basketball game and the color baby blue what do you get? A bucket list trip for TJ. Actually, his bucket list includes traveling to places like Hawaii and Europe. As a new recruiter on our Converdia team, he loves to research and explore what travel opportunities are out there for our nurses. Finding a match for the nurse and the healthcare facility is his goal. If TJ is not on the phone recruiting, you will find him hanging out with family & friends and his cute French bulldog, Polo. Teamwork is the name of the game at Converdia, and TJ is a great addition to the team.

Jasmine Washington

HR Assistant

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.

Emily Miller


Emily Miller, COME ON DOWN! You’re the next contestant on the Price is Right!

Well, it hasn’t happened yet but there’s still time! One of Emily’s bucket list items is to be on a game show… Price is Right, Wheel of Fortune, or the Family Feud are some of her favorites.

Besides getting comfy and watching her favorite game shows, Emily’s time indoors is spent with a good book or settling in and having a girls night watching Bachelor or Bachelorette. A summer filled with plenty of sunshine from lake-time with family, outdoor concerts with friends, and sunny walks with her puppy Harvey, along with dreaming of trips to Italy or Hawaii is what keeps her working so hard!

Converdia’s motto of “Work hard, Play hard” fits Emily to a “T”.  She will work hard to match you with your next adventure. So… Travel Nurses, COME ON DOWN! You could be the next travel nurse on Emily’s team!

Morgan Dennistoun


Sunshine and Summer lovin’ are always on the top of Morgan’s mind! Dreaming of time at the lake, laying out by the pool, and concerts at Red Rocks. Not to mention all the weddings, friendly gatherings, and downtown Sioux Falls shopping… we’re getting a little Vitamin D just thinking about it!

Morgan’s love of time with family and friends, beautiful sunsets in Hawaii, experiencing European culture, or just spending time inside snuggling with her kittens named “Boy” and “Girl”…her warm personality expands to every part of her life!

As a recruiter, Morgan enjoys working with people to find their favorite place and their perfect fit. Whether you’re looking to travel or work locally, reach out and let Morgan help you with your next best adventure!

Erica Finley


Colorful leaves, warm days, cool nights and the sounds of tractors and combines at work…..what do all of these things have in common?  They paint a picture of Erica’s favorite time of year! Growing up on the family farm, her memories of the Fall harvest are simply the best.  Whether it’s time at the farm or spending some well-deserved down-time at the lake, family and friends are always involved.

As an outdoor enthusiast, Erica and her husband love to experience the great outdoors and trail ride on their well-worn Polaris RZR. Erica’s love for a bold adventure doesn’t just stop at the trails though. She’s hoping to one day venture to Alaska, Galapagos Islands, Scandinavia… though the RZR might not be able to fit in her luggage.

This absolute spirit of adventure is what makes Erica a great recruiter. She’s always working hard to find clinicians the perfect fit for their next best adventure!

Scott Vigen

Client Manager of Long Term Care

Whatever you do, don’t mix Scott, a microphone, and an audience. He said it himself… things could get a little dangerous! Scott is a natural extrovert who has a genuine knack with people. The study of different kinds of people and what “drives” them is a favorite pastime of his.

A bucket list trip for Scott would be to visit Israel, see the sights, experience the culture, and, no doubt, do a little “people watching”.  His curiosity and exploration doesn’t end there though. He’s a walking and talking book of knowledge! Ask him about sports, cars, or unique foods…he knows it all.

As a Client Manager, Scott is on a mission to make a difference.  His infectious positive attitude and experience is essential in helping Converdia bridge the gap for healthcare in rural America.

Ryan Dobbins


A self-proclaimed History nerd, Ryan finds any facts and stories from the past particularly fascinating. Following this passion, 4th of July camping on the Gettysburg battlefield, visiting Auschwitz, Dachau, and Normandy are all top of his bucket list. All places with stories to tell that he would love to discover!

For Ryan’s story, he’s a family man with four daughters (you read that right, FOUR!) who is always looking forward to that sweet, sweet summertime living and his favorite sport that comes along with it…baseball. GO TWINS!! Trips to different parks, spending time with the family dogs, and drives to fun places like the Black Hills and Badlands are some of his favorite family memories. Speaking of memories, ask Ryan about the time he had a beer with the one and only Bruce Willis! He’d love to share.

As a recruiter at Converdia, Ryan will work with you to help you define your story….what will your next adventure be?

Seth Mellin

Human Resources Specialist

The Sky is not your limit! Just ask Seth, our HR Specialist.  Skydiving is on his bucket list – living life without limits!! Go Seth!  Back here on earth, he loves hiking in the majesty of Rocky Mountains, especially in the fall. 

Fall is his favorite.  The beautiful colors and fresh air of the great outdoors is a perfect setting for late-night walks with his fiancé and their Toy Australian Shepherd, Ridley.  Travel to the mountains and the Rockies is not his only travel dream, someday he hopes to travel to other countries around the world.   

Grounded in Sioux Falls, Seth’s expertise in the area of technology and love for detailed projects will be a great addition to Converdia’s HR team.  He aims to make the onboarding and submittal process as quick and easy as possible.  We’re lucky to have him!
