About Our Founder

Jennifer Thompson was born and raised in Minnesota and attended the University of Minnesota. About halfway through her college career she visited Salt Lake City and fell in love with the mountains. She moved to Utah shortly thereafter and transferred to the University of Utah where she earned a degree in Marketing.

Jennifer spent the first 12 years of her career in sales and leadership with a Fortune 100 company. In 2008 she started her career in healthcare staffing with CompHealth. She worked in the Permanent Placement division as a recruiter for Neurosurgery, Orthopedic Surgery, Urology, Otolaryngology and PM&R. In 2010 she moved into a leadership position in Locum Tenens and worked in Orthopedic Surgery, Cardiothoracic Surgery, Vascular Surgery and Primary Care. Jennifer left CompHealth in 2014 to join a smaller permanent placement firm and return to working directly with candidates and clients.

Provider Careers was launched in January 2016. All of Jennifer’s experience has led her to a place where she has the background, skills and knowledge to lead a successful healthcare provider recruitment company. Her relentless focus on making a difference, being thorough, and being personable are an unstoppable combination for both candidates and clients!

Jennifer loves spending time with her family going skiing, mountain biking, camping, and fishing for walleye. She also enjoys running and lifting weights. Her boys play hockey and she loves being a hockey mom!
