I’m passionate about recruiting and placement of travel staff, and helping healthcare professionals grow in their careers.

Clinical Nurse Manager

Justin Giovagnoli

I’ve been a member of team ECMStaffing since 2019. I earned my BSN from the University of North Carolina (Go Heels!) in 2006 and have worked in ICU-Critical Care throughout my career. I do my best to live life with a focus on integrity, transparency and community. When looking for travel work in the PNW, I was referred to ECMStaffing and felt like I finally found a company I could align with. As the Clinical Nurse Manager, I’m responsible for overseeing competency assessment-related activities and addressing performance issues or concerns of clinical field staff to ensure ECMStaffing meets hospital-facility requirements and Joint Commission Standards.

When not wearing scrubs, you’ll find me running/shuffling/walking the trails of Washington State, (ad)venturing to beautiful places, and having conversations with loved ones. Oh, and playing lots of fetch with our dog – Chili Bob.
