Meet Your Recruiter

Brianna Dodson
Account Executive - Physician Recruitment

Born and raised in Creswell Oregon, right outside of Eugene, Bri started her adult life as a Military wife. Moving from state to state she had the opportunity to advance her career in customer relations before the family settled back home in the Pacific Northwest. From here she worked in client-facing roles focusing on key accounts in the non-profit sector. Bri has always gravitated to these mission driven community organizations. Her passion for helping others has led her to numerous volunteer and leadership positions with Boy Scouts of America, Wilsonville Little League, The Oregon Food Bank, and her most passionate one, Night to Shine. She came to UHC Solutions to bring that same passion to community healthcare recruitment. Her enthusiasm shows every day for her FQHC recruitment success across the nation. Brianna’s ability to build and maintain relationships, along with her passion to serve, makes her invaluable to both clients and candidates alike.

Outside the office, she and her husband are busy raising their two kids. Weekends are spent on the football field or baseball field for her son, or at cheerleading and swimming meets for her daughter. Bri’s favorite thing to do outside of being with her family is wine tasting with her husband and doing her crafting hobby.
