How Tal Healthcare Started
The Beginning of the Story
Growing up, Lea was keenly aware of two driving forces in her life: one, her need to help others and two, her need to be the boss. She always bossed around her two older brothers and took care of them.
In college Lea quickly gravitated toward the social sciences and graduated with a degree in Psychology and Sociology from the University of Massachusetts Amherst. Right out of college, Lea began a business in the clothing industry. When her kids came along, she realized that clothing was not her passion.
She knew that if she was going to work outside of the home she needed to feel passionate about it. That is when Lea entered the healthcare industry. Helping Healthcare professionals progress their careers was like a calling. Starting out as a healthcare recruiter for another group, Lea quickly worked her way up to Senior Vice President of Recruitment. Her track record of success earned her praise and respect from her clients and colleagues. After ten years in the healthcare executive search business, Lea put her talents and knowledge together with an entrepreneurial drive; she opened Tal Healthcare in February of 2006. Having established her own company, Lea spends her days helping others achieve their career goals and being the boss of Tal Healthcare.
Tal Healthcare was founded and is led by Lea Tal. She champions a team of executive recruiters, leveraging more than two decades of experience in healthcare recruitment with a passion for forging dynamic professional relationships.
Lea and her team’s dedication to advancing the career paths of healthcare professionals is enhanced by extensive personal networking and participation in many professional associations such as ACHE, HFMA, AHHE, HLNY, SHRM, AHHRA, and NAPR.
