A podcast hosted by Sunny & Matt

About Cardium

Welcome to Cardium, the podcast that gets to the heart of travel healthcare. With each episode we dig in and discuss topics relevant to traveling healthcare professionals within all fields and specialties of nursing and allied health. We talk the talk with experts and connect with travelers who share their unique perspectives and experiences. What topics do we cover? We offer content you can relate to, from the need to know and good to know as a traveler to stories that connect us and lift us up. We take the conversation in varied directions because that’s the nature of the mobile lifestyle - it’s a multidimensional career. If you’re currently traveling as a nurse, a therapist, a tech, or in any specialty within the medical field, tune in. If you’re not, this is your space, too. All are welcome at Cardium, sponsored by Aureus Medical Group. Inform, impact, inspire. That’s why we’re here. We’re happy you’re part of our podcast community.

Sunny Snook

Sunny brings a unique perspective to Cardium, having spent more than 25 years in the healthcare industry, first as a provider and, for the majority of her career, in various roles in staffing and recruiting. She joined Aureus Medical Group in 2009 as a recruiter (physical and occupational therapy) and later launched and served as Branch Manager of Student Outreach for its Nursing and Allied Health divisions, which offers career resources and job placement services to students and new grads. She also served as Program Manager of the Aureus Medical Mentoring Program which pairs PTs, PTA, OTs, and OTAs who are new to travel with seasoned traveling therapists. Prior to joining Aureus, Sunny worked in nursing recruitment, as a staffing strategies consultant, addictions therapist, and residential treatment coordinator. Recently, Sunny transitioned to FocusOne Solutions, a managed services provider and sister company of Aureus, where she’ll be consulting with hospitals on their staffing programs and initiatives. She holds a B.A. in Psychology and a Master’s in Human Services. Sunny and her husband are parents to three teenaged boys who participate in variety of sports, theater, and other activities. As a family they enjoy supporting each other’s passions and interests, being outdoors, hiking, and exploring. When Sunny has time to herself, she taps into her creative side in the kitchen, behind the camera lens, or crocheting a new design. She may also have her nose in a good book.

Matt is a nearly 15 year veteran of the healthcare staffing industry and is glad to be part of Cardium, where he's able to enhance the experience for healthcare professionals through the podcast platform. He began his career as a recruiter with Aureus Medical Group and worked hand-in-hand with healthcare professionals to help connect them with fulfilling travel assignments across the country. He later was promoted to Branch Manager of the Medical Laboratory division and currently serves in a Director role for Aureus Medical’s Allied Health Division, which is comprised of specialties ranging from therapy and imaging to medical laboratory, oncology, and more. As Matt’s career has evolved over time, his appreciation for healthcare professionals has only deepened. He continues to be inspired daily by the spirit, work ethic, and dedication of those who have devoted their careers to improving the lives of others and who, through their travel careers, step in when facilities are in great need. Matt served for four years in the United States Marine Corps and holds a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration and Management. He and his wife are parents of a trio – one in college, high school, and elementary school. They keep busy with kids’ athletics and enjoy traveling as much as possible when the stars (and schedules) align.
