Adventures in the Philippines

Recently, our very own Kira went on a trip to the Philippines for two weeks. Her pictures were beyond beautiful that we just had to share her experience with all of you:

“The Philippines was such a fun adventure and I recommend it to everyone! My boyfriend and I traveled there for about 2 weeks, and it truly wasn’t enough time! We went to Manila, Palawan, Cebu, Naga, and then back to Manila before our flight home. We were able to see some beautiful beaches and islands, as well as a bit of their history like Fort San Pedro which has been there since the 16th century! We went snorkeling at some of the beaches and also went rafting at their Underground Caves! On the last night of our trip we watched a firework show in Manila, and it was such a perfect way to cap off our trip! I will definitely be going again, but would like to explore other places next time around.”


Dancing for a Cause

Flashback Productions presents: Once Upon a FlashbackYour favorite Disney classics with a modern twist

Here at The First String Healthcare we strive to sometimes step outside the typical day to day role’s and give back to the community in our own special ways. Our very own Dana Bonifacio, who is very involved with Disney, participates in an annual showcase held by Disneyland Resort that supports the Accelerate Change Together organization in Anaheim, California. This organization was made to help “build a better future for the youth of Anaheim”  and is also supported by Angels Baseball and Anaheim Ducks.  It is a musical theater production with singing, dancing and acting; comprised of Disneyland cast members throughout the resort.  It is performed at Disney California Adventure on the Hyperion Theater stage.  The resort is split up into 4 teams depending on their area work location.  Rehearsals are 4 days a week, Monday – Thursday nights, 4 hours each day for 6 weeks straight.  All participants of the production earn volunteer hours.  Dana is part of the core dance team and was chosen by the leadership team as the “dance team captain”.  Every year Disney donates all proceeds from the shows revenue to a charity and this year the team was able to donate $15,000.  This is Dana’s 3rd season participating in this production.

Everyone gathers together for the same cause, which allows people from all areas of the Disney organization to interact and work together that wouldn’t normally connect outside of this production. Most participants have never danced before so it’s great for them to come out of their shell and learn something new!!

Not all of us were able to attend, but she had an amazing support team thanks to Emily, Samantha, Lindsay, Kylie, Steph, Matt and Elissa.

We are so proud to have Dana on our team!

England Travels

Our interims are always traveling to such amazing places and we always love getting updates while they are on their travels. This interim in particulary took a trip to the UK with her daughter and was able to partake in some holiday festivities on top of sight-seeing the must see sights. We love living vicariously through the photos we receive – they are always so diverse and beautiful. Thank you Vivienne!

 

Happy Birthday Anne!

We wanted Anne to have a very special day so we filled her office with black and white (her favorite colors) balloons and gold and black streamers. Without Anne this office would not be where it is today. Thank you for all you do for us! Happiest of Birthdays to you and we hope this year brings you everything you wish for.

Miracles for Kids

This year The First String Healthcare adopted a family of a terminally ill child to make sure they had a Christmas they would never forget. A couple of us here at the office took time to personally deliver the gifts to not only our family but to 2 additional families as well, hoping to bring good spirits to them all. Unfortunately we didn’t get to meet any of the children personally, but knowing that through the pain and sickness they are dealing with coming home to these gifts will make them smile and make them forget about all that even if it’s just for a second brings a smile to all of our faces here.

Merry Christmas!

A Visitor

Here at The First String Healthcare we work hard to build and maintain strong relationships with not only our clients but also the candidates that we place into these healthcare organizations. We get to know them not only professionally, but also personally. We were lucky enough to place one of our interims here in California who made a special trip to our headquarters to meet everyone in person. Not only that we were able to celebrate her birthday with her as well!

Graduated from the University of Hawaii- West Oahu with a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology.  Moved to California to intern with The Walt Disney Company and later worked with their Workforce Management team for Retail Operations.  Just a typical small town island girl fascinated with new adventures on the mainland.

I LOVE: Visiting family in Hawaii, Disneyland, hiking, crafting, gardening, loose leaf tea, boba, acai bowls and kawaii trinkets.

MY GUILTY PLEASURE: Garlic with a side of fries and cupcakes, but never together.

FAVORITE QUOTE: “Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take your breath away.”

IN MY SPARE TIME: You can find me watching something on Netflix or Hulu Plus, researching U.S. National Parks and Monuments to visit, chilling at local breweries, or taking a dance class.
