President

Daniel Amitin

As the proud founder of AMI Network, my responsibilities extend to a comprehensive scope that revolves around strategic initiatives. These initiatives encompass pivotal facets such as driving growth, nurturing client triumph, and orchestrating the seamless orchestration of operations across our multifaceted spectrum, which encompasses Direct Hire, RPO, and Staffing lines. My role is a dynamic blend of vision and execution, as I relentlessly strive to steer our organization toward greater horizons. My commitment to overseeing these diverse lines of business for fostering the evolution of AMI Network.

I Grew up in the San Fernando Valley, attended UCLA, fell in love with the weather and culture on the west side and have lived here ever since. Founded AMI Network in 2010, at the ripe age of 24. It’s been an incredible journey growing the business from my parents garage into a top 10% search firm in the United States. Watching the team grow, develop and continue to excel has been an incredibly gratifying feeling and thinking about growth plans over the next 5-10 years are the reason I wake up at night!

Vice President, Direct Hire & RPO Solutions

Greg Fischer

I lead a team of über talented recruiters (the equivalent of “The Avengers” of headhunting), and I am responsible for managing the relationship with our clients. My role is to understand your “perfect hire” down to the color of their shoes while consulting our team and yours on the best way to attract them. I collaborate closely with both our team and yours, offering strategic insights to ensure we attract and secure the ideal candidates seamlessly and effectively.

I joined AMI Network on a sunny Santa Monica morning in April 2016. Since then I’ve been lucky enough to play a part in growing our firm from two bright-eyed, bushy-tailed 20-somethings in to a process-driven, top-10% Executive Search firm. I get a strange satisfaction from the challenge of helping our clients make a “needle in a haystack” hire, but that’s just part of what gets me out of bed in the morning. Easily the most rewarding part of my role at AMI is building a remarkable place for our team to work and providing an opportunity for them to grow and prosper.

Head of Growth

Garry McIntosh

Garry is an experienced healthcare administration and technology executive with a primary focus on strategic operations, sales and marketing, team development and healthcare technology. Prior to his position as the Head of Growth for AMI Network, Garry served as the Chief Revenue Officer for a suite of nutraceutical and healthcare technology organizations, and has past experience as a practice manager in anesthesia, emergency and hospitalist medicine. In addition to over a decade of experience in  healthcare, Garry is passionate about the fight against modern day slavery where he dedicated two years to strategic partnerships and fundraising for multiple organizations. Garry has a Bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology and a Master’s in Business Administration from Texas State University in San Marcos, TX. Additional post-graduate certifications include full-stack development from Bethel School of Technology in Redding, CA.

Garry and his family enjoy volunteering and have worked with a number of youth organizations over the years, including founding Sports in the Park, which offers a safe and consistent space for underserved youth to play and grow.  In his free time, Garry enjoys road trips that are too long, hiking, traveling, learning, and serving with his wife and three kids.

Director, Staffing Solutions

Kaylin Legacy

About a decade ago, my journey in the healthcare realm kicked off with a role as a patient care coordinator. Little did I know that this would be the spark igniting my passion for the industry and revealing my knack for the hiring process. As I dove deeper, I found myself truly enjoying the art of connecting the right people with the right positions. Fast forward to my chapter at AMI Network. Armed with previous experience as a Director of Recruitment, I proudly hold the mantle of Director of Staffing today. In this capacity, I get to lead a team of recruiters, guiding them to shine their brightest while helping individuals land their dream jobs. The magic of collaborating with my team to achieve our shared goals is simply unparalleled!

On a personal note, I proudly wear the hat of a dog mom to a lively 2-year-old terrier mutt named Buddy! When I'm not on pup duty, you'll often find me embarking on adventures with my friends and family. While my roots are firmly planted in Orange County, CA, life's journey has now led me to the intriguing landscape of the Arizona desert. Adapting to this new chapter is a gradual but exciting process.

Operations Manager

Katie Goddard

Starting at AMI Network, I quickly realized that my initial career plans were about to take an exciting turn. The recruitment industry captured my heart from the very beginning. Coming from many areas in the hospitality industry, where I spent a decade honing my skills, I was well-prepared to thrive in the unpredictable world of healthcare recruitment.

When I'm not busy putting out fires and ensuring smooth operations at AMI Network, you can often find me at Trader Joe's or taking a meeting on my way out to the airport to explore the next cool spot on my bucket list.

Manager, Direct Hire Recruitment

Genevieve Tyler

As the Direct Hire Recruitment Manager, recruiting speaks to my personal mission of changing people’s lives for the better. I lead a team of extremely talented recruiters who share the same passion for making a difference in people’s lives. Together, we work towards our mission of helping healthcare professionals and executive leaders find fulfilling careers. With my background in healthcare recruiting, brand management, and talent marketing, I guide my team to understand the market. We build strong relationships with our candidates, ensuring that we find the perfect match for each role we fill.

A fun fact about me is that my entire family is from South Africa. I have gotten to travel there pretty frequently – my sister and most of my extended family still live in South Africa. I would highly recommend the wine route in Stellenbosch for the best wine tastings in the world!

Manager, RPO Recruitment

Nicole Russi

As the Recruitment Manager responsible for overseeing our RPO recruiters and clients, my absolute favorite part of my role is helping our recruiters unlock their full potential and achieve outstanding results. There’s nothing quite as rewarding as witnessing the incredible impact we make in the organizations we partner with. Together, we create success stories that leave a lasting mark, and I couldn’t be more thrilled to be a part of this journey with our incredible team.

I love what I do here at AMI Network, the real reason I enjoy my job is because of the amazing humans I get the pleasure of working with every day. I grew up in a very small town in Northern California, and had 5 goats and 3 horses! Still not sure how I wound up in Los Angeles, but I’m loving it here.

Business Development Manager

Jillian Doss

I started my time in the staffing industry in June 2020. I have worked in a variety of roles within the industry ranging from Recruiter to Account Executive to Business Development Manager. I am excited to join AMI as Business Development Manager to impact our clients needs and to assist talent in finding their dream roles!

I was born and raised in a military family, and was fortunate to live all across the world. My definition of “home” is a little different from most. I call “home” California, North Carolina and Germany, where I spent most of my childhood. Currently, I live in Southern California! I attended San Diego State to obtain a business degree and the University of La Verne for my MBA. In my free time, I enjoy working out, traveling and spending time with family!

Business Development Manager

Joseph Stedman

After 7 years in the outdoor industry, I left my career of managing high-performing teams and building world-class rock climbing gyms to finish school and seek out a new start in the Healthcare industry. In my role as Business Development Specialist at AMI Network, I  bring a dynamic approach to building partnerships and driving revenue growth. I take pride in understanding our client’s needs and identifying top talent to help them achieve their business objectives. Leveraging AMI’s all-star Recruiters and cutting-edge Research teams, I strive to provide our clients with the best talent solutions available. 

My wife and I are currently traveling the U.S. in a big blue converted school bus; enjoying the outdoors, ALL the food, live music, and an endless summer with our 2 dogs (Detroit & Rockie) and our cat (Otis). Ask me about my favorite camping and surfing spots or how my golf swing is coming along (spoiler alert- not well.) 

Project Coordinator

Jessica Keesee

I joined AMI in February of 2022 and have had the opportunity to work with each of our service lines, as well as with clients and candidates. I bring to the AMI team 12 years of experience in HR and administrative support, previously in the IT staffing world. My favorite part of my job is the ability to coordinate all the moving parts and help the team get to the finish line with projects. We are always looking for new and exciting tools that can help the team grow and strengthen our ability to place stellar candidates in their perfect roles.

When I am not seeking out fun improvement projects for our team, I am spending time with my husband & son, Brian & Damien. We love trying new restaurants and bakeries in Houston and taking our 2 dogs, Buddy Howly & Stevie Licks to the dog park.

I'm a mom of two humans and a corgi! I was born and raised in small town Amarillo (you know, like the George Strait song?) where we get wind and tumbleweeds, but also glorious west Texas sunsets!

Senior Staffing Recruiter

Madina Nayibkhil

Hello I’m Madina! – a Healthcare Recruiter extraordinaire at AMI Healthcare Staffing! I am absolutely thrilled to be a part of a team that’s dedicated to helping our clients and candidates find the quickest and best available match. It’s funny how life works – I stumbled into the world of recruiting 5 years ago by pure luck and the rest is history. It’s been a love affair ever since, and there’s no swiping left on this career choice! Recruiting can be crazy, but I wouldn’t want it any other way. Even when my inbox is overflowing with a million emails, I still somehow enjoy getting lost in the chaos.

Apart from work, I delight in baking and decorating cakes, staying active, finding new investment opportunities, and traveling! I’m always planning my next travel adventure. So, whether you’re looking for your next role or just want to swap travel tips, I’m always happy to chat!

Senior Staffing Recruiter

Naomi Abeyta

I’m a Healthcare Staffing Recruiter at AMI! Over the past three years, I’ve found the perfect match for healthcare professionals at the right time, and it’s been a blast! But hey, it’s not just about jobs for me. It’s about making meaningful links, shaping careers, and making sure the healthcare field gets the awesome folks it needs to shine! When it comes to my work, I bring endless enthusiasm, way too many exclamation points, and an undeniable love for emojis.

But let's talk about me personally, shall we? I live and breathe by values such as integrity, honesty, kindness, directness, and transparency, which, if you ask me, are the secret sauce to my recruiting success. And when I'm not glued to my computer or phone or chasing around my kiddos, you can find me trying to keep my thumb green by gardening or getting lost in Pinterest house designs.

Direct Hire Recruiter

Abby McLaughlin

I’m Abby – your go-to for all things behavioral health recruiting at AMI. I found a posting for AMI on Indeed and thought, “This can’t be real, can it?” But as fate would have it, I was about to discover my true passion – helping others find their dream job. As a former 911 dispatcher, mental health has always been at the forefront of my mind. I know how important it is to find a job that aligns with your values and passions. That’s why I feel incredibly fortunate to spend my days connecting with therapists and social workers and helping them find the perfect job that fulfills their career goals.

Having spent multiple years shadowing medical professionals in many different capacities gave me a unique understanding and respect for our countries healers. Five years of experience in communications as an emergency dispatcher gave me the knowledge and ability to work effectively to meet the needs of clients and potential candidates alike. When I'm not working you can find me and my golden retriever, Gibson, looking for new trails to hike in the mountains!

Direct Hire Recruiter

Michelle Hawkins

I am currently in the role of Direct Hire Recruiter at AMI Network, where I have the opportunity to work closely with clients to address their hiring requirements. With nearly 18 years of experience in healthcare recruitment, I have had the privilege of assisting numerous clients in finding the ideal candidates for their organizations. I genuinely enjoy collaborating with both clients and candidates to ensure a seamless and mutually beneficial match.

I applied to AMI Network with understanding of the direction and work/life balance this company has planned and implements. Moving back to Temporary Staffing with my background, I was ready to tackle a rapidly growing agency and happy I did. When I am not helping organizations staff their job sites, I enjoy traveling and cooking. Once a year I try to do a vacation overseas. My favorite so far is Florence, Italy.

RPO Recruiter

Rachel Williams

I stumbled into recruiting while browsing jobs for social people and a mission to move to San Diego post grad. I came across an entry level recruiter role over 2 years ago and thought to myself, “This sounds interesting, why not give it a shot?” To my surprise, I absolutely loved it, and I am here to stay! My journey began with a passion for learning, helping, and connecting with diverse individuals. I initially started in the biotechnology sector and then expanded my expertise to support healthcare, care management and clinical research markets. I’m always eager to offer a helping hand, I would love to team up and help you find your dream career.

I am originally from Maryland and made my way to San Diego post-college to take on a new adventure! When I'm not in work mode, I'm all about soaking up the sun, diving into good books and spending time with friends & family.

RPO Recruiter

Regelle Allison

Coming from the finance industry, I’ve worn many hats, from being a Teller to an Assistant Bank Manager. Over the past ten years, I’ve had the opportunity to connect with people daily which really helped me understand their needs. I became excited about how I could be a matchmaker for careers. That’s when I found AMI. They provided me with the chance to truly help people find meaningful careers that would transform their lives. And let me tell you, I couldn’t be more thrilled to be a part of it all. AMI empowers individuals, and I’m here to create those life-changing opportunities that make a difference.

I'm the person that's usually on the dance floor if there is ever music playing. I always end up gathering a group of strangers to dance or giving dance tutorials. My favorite language is Spanish. I studied it for about 7 years. A tad rusty now but always love the opportunity to speak it with others. If I'm eating mangoes, it usually has salt, peppers, and green seasoning on it. We call it a “Chow” where I’m from.

Staffing Coordinator

Marlene Martinez

My career started off doing administrative work for a staffing agency back in 2012 and soon realized that the staffing industry was something that I could see myself working in for years to come.  I’ve gained a lot of experience within the staffing industry throughout the years and have been responsible for anything from data entry, onboarding to sourcing/interviewing and everything else in between!  I enjoy knowing that I am a part of facilitating the process for both our clients and our employees along with making the process run smooth on both ends!

In my spare time, I love spending time with my family.  I was born in California where I lived for a couple of years, then moved to Vegas and have been in Illinois for the past 20+ years!
