We recently added two team members to our team. Meet Kira and Justin!
KIRA BALAEFF | Healthcare Recruitment Specialist
Kira graduated from California State University Long Beach with a Bachelor’s Degree in Anthropology. She is the newest member to The First String, having been hired in June 2015, but is looking forward to being an important part of the Interim/Operations team.
I LOVE: Music (mostly all varieties), my family, friends, coffee, reading, SPAM, Harry Potter, crime shows, beer (especially IPAs), and my husky/pit bull mix Riley.
GUILTY PLEASURE: Sour Patch Kids and anything fried
IN MY SPARE TIME: You can find me spending time with friends and family, hanging out at the beach, going to concerts, traveling, or binge watching television shows/movies.
JUSTIN LYNN | Healthcare Recruitment Specialist
After completing his Bachelor’s degrees in Applied Behavioral Science and Psychology from The University of Kansas, Justin moved to California to obtain his Master’s in Research Psychology from Cal State Fullerton. He is extremely driven to help quality candidates and companies continue to push the limits of what’s possible for both interim and permanent positions at The First String.
I LOVE: Recruiting, research, science, technology, camping, fishing, grilling and anything space-related.
MY GUILTY PLEASURE: Trader Joe’s Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Caramels
IN MY SPARE TIME: You can find me hanging out with friends by the beach, reading good books/articles, tinkering with computers, stargazing, or entertaining my cat.
