KPG Consultants

The Provider Services division of KPG was created around a fundamental point of differentiation – geographic expertise. KPG’s consultants offer diversity in their service but unified behind a consistent theme of working with the best providers and the top organizations in California and the West Coast. Our mission focuses on relationship building and an understanding of short and long-term interests from all of our clients. KPG continues to defy industry assumptions and norms, paving the way towards a superior service to California’s elite provider network.

Emerson 1

Emerson Nagle – President

I have spent my entire 15-year career within the staffing and recruiting industry, working with healthcare professionals of all levels. Specializing in developing businesses and building teams, KPG offered me the opportunity to create something from a blank canvas and thus, KPG Provider Services was born. Knowledgeable service, transparency, fair rates, solution-based thinking, pragmatism, don’t have to be lost in today’s service. My mission became creating the most talented team that could bring an unparalleled service to California’s organizations and providers. I am an animal lover, exercise and health enthusiast, traveling enthusiast and a Carlsbad native. Contact me with any feedback or questions on our services.

Alexis Wilson  – Client Development Manager 

I thrive in an environment where I am given the autonomy to help the individuals and larger organizations in which it can serve. I understand the difficulties of being faced with a growing nation-wide physician shortage. I love my job because every day I get to use my problem-solving skills to figure out solutions to these problems. The greatest part of my job is being able to work for a company where I feel my hard work and dedication are going to benefit entire organizations, communities, providers, and ultimately the patients that we can serve when we work together!  KPG is truly an amazing place to be.

Chanelle Gonzalez – Consultant

Being a Consultant at KPG combines my interest in the Healthcare industry, and my love for helping for people. Getting to work alongside every hardworking member of this team, to help our Providers in any and every way we possibly can is incredibly rewarding. Being raised on the West Coast, gave me the ability to relate to Southern California Based Provider’s geographically. But it was my east coast Boston roots that allowed me understand the core importance of healthcare in the life science, and research industry. I enjoy building relationships, spending time with family and friends, and the New England Patriots, GO Brady! .

What I love about my job is getting to find new opportunities for a candidate that fits what they are looking for in order to help them succeed both professionally and in their personal life.

Michael Bruzzone – Consultant

For some things, automation will never be as effective as person-to-person communication. KPG gives me an outlet to provide that individualized service to providers who are likely tired of the usual staffing experience. I love taking on the unique challenges that come with matching our provider’s career goals with the needs of our clients. At the end of the day, we help people provide for their families and give communities access to awesome doctors – how could I not take pride in that? The creative environment here at KPG also allows me to apply the creativity I’ve developed through writing, drawing, cooking, and music toward a career that rewards thinking outside of the box!

Leticia Best Take

Leticia Brewster – Credentialing Manager

Credentialing is typically viewed as a check-the-box regulatory burden, but it is more than that here at KPG. It is about getting to know the provider, developing a relationship and finding ways to make the process stress-free. Generally, providers need to engage in a tedious, paper-based credentialing process before granted privileges. I love my job because this burden is greatly reduced with the help of me and my team! Also, through credentialing, patients are assured of their healthcare professional’s merit and experience which is important to me. When I am not assisting providers navigate the credentialing process, I am home sketching or at an art gallery.

Evelyn Mendoza- Credentialing Coordinator  

I enjoy working in credentialing because not only do I have the opportunity to help our providers by taking a little bit of the weight off through every step, but I also get to help the patients by making sure that our providers are appropriately credentialed to help them to the best of their ability. My goal is to always make the credentialing process as smooth as possible for our providers. Fun Fact: I really enjoy being outdoors and going on nature walks.

Seraphina O’Leary – Logistics Manager

What I love about my job is that every day is a new adventure. There hasn’t been a day that I’ve been bored. Also, everyone is always happy and friendly which is a huge plus.  A fun fact about me is I love puzzles. I will finish 1,000 pieces of puzzles in less than a week, so I have to increase the pieces to 5,000. I am running out of space in my house.
