Kristen Kirsch

VP, Physician Services

Short Bio

I was born and raised in Oregon, but chased the warm weather to sunny southern California where I’m currently based. Over the course of my career in nephrology, I have enjoyed building relationships with physicians from all over the world.

What I Love About My Role

I love meeting new people and helping them make meaningful connections that result in successful careers and partnerships is truly rewarding.

Louise Jacobson

Sr. Director, Physician Services- Eastern US Region

Short Bio

I grew up in Buffalo New York and now call North Carolina home. I spent most of my career in healthcare recruitment with the last 15 recruiting nephrologists. I provide career guidance and opportunities to fellows transitioning into practice and practicing physicians interested in a change. I assisted in the development of NBLU, a national conference for second year fellows and am the event manager.

What I Love About My Role

I find my job to be extremely rewarding and love what I do from building meaningful relationships to filling a need in a community. The best part is seeing the physicians I assisted enjoying fulfilling careers that align with their professional and personal goals.

What I Love About My Role

I love meeting so many talented nephrologists as they follow their passion in the world of nephrology. Building a relationship with each one and connecting them to their ideal job is incredibly rewarding.
