Meet Our Staff
Medical Staffing Agency President
Rey David Rivera is the President and CEO of TheraEx Staffing Services, a staffing company that aligns nurses and Allied Professionals with the right organization, setting and position that meets their needs in a dynamic, changing healthcare marketplace.
As an actively practicing registered licensed Occupational Therapist himself, Rey understands the important relationships and the trust that healthcare providers place in the hands of recruiters. He has a unique perspective of what it is like to be a therapist in
search of the right position; a hiring manager and representative of organization looking for that “right person” that fits organization’s culture; as well as the challenges in finding a staffing agency that actually listens and appreciates what you have to offer.
It is his passion to ensure that TheraEx knows who you are, knows your story, and what drives you so you can provide the exceptional care that your patients deserve. As part of this overall strategy, he has ensured that TheraEx Staffing is an active member of Minority Business Enterprise (MBE) and has received and maintained certification as an MBE with the National Minority Supplier Development Council (NMSDC).
Before devoting his time in creating TheraEx’s unique individualized culture in 2009, Rey served as a licensed professional and leader across numerous healthcare settings for more than 17 years. This includes Area Manager for Hallmark Rehabilitation, Vice President of Rehabilitation at JPH consulting, Inc., Regional Rehabilitation Manager at Bethel Healthcare from 2008, Director of Rehabilitation Services at RJ Therapy, Director of Rehabilitation Services at Mariner Health Care, and a treating Occupational Therapist for a staffing agency whose clients include SNFs and acute hospitals.
After completing his MBA in 2010, Rey got inspired to merge his extensive healthcare experience and unique perspective while applying his entrepreneurial passion to building TheraEx Staffing. In 2019, Rey recently graduated from Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses, as an investment to TheraEx as a small business so it can continue to create jobs and economic opportunity.
Outside of work, Rey enjoys watching movie marathons; spending dinner dates with his ex-girlfriend (a.k.a. his wife) and coaching basketball to his three sons.
Director of Operations
I started in the Healthcare Industry in 2006 doing risk management for Physicians in Dallas. That’s when I fell in love with healthcare staffing. I started my Recruiting career in Physician Recruitment then moved to California where I built experience with Nurse Staffing.
In 2016 I joined the TheraEx family as the Director of the Nursing Division. My favorite thing about what I do is not only the fact that every day is different, but that I get to make a difference in people’s lives by providing jobs and supplying facilities with people who provide excellent care to patients.
Clinical Division Director
I first started my career as a Healthcare Credentialing Specialist in 2013 for nurses at a Medical Staffing Agency. I like the day to day challenges that come with working in the credentialing field because it makes your days interesting and every day is different!
I graduated in 2011 with my BA in Criminal Justice. I think my degree played a huge part in why I love credentialing because it is very analytical and challenges me each day. I joined the TheraEx team as the Clinical Compliance Manager in 2016 for the Nursing Division. Here at TheraEx, my goal is to provide our clients with the best clinicians possible in the timeliest manner.
I have been a recruiter in the Healthcare industry since 2020. I thoroughly enjoy getting to know every candidate and strive to build a solid, genuine connection. There are always new innovations and processes for the Healthcare Industry, so this job is never boring! When I am not recruiting, I enjoy teaching fitness classes, participating in Renaissance Festivals, baking desserts, and going to the beach. Music is also a big part of my life, so I always have some sort of playlist playing in the background.
As a born-and-raised Floridian, I received my BS in Hospitality Management from the University of Florida in 2015 and have been in the Customer Service Industry ever since. I have done everything from performing clerical work at the local YMCA to managing a Café. I absolutely love helping people and will continue to do so in any way I can!

I enjoy getting to know others and assisting them in finding a path where they can develop and thrive. It is a great feeling to be a part of someone else’s journey and see them succeed.
I am a part-time student in the process of obtaining my AA in Business Administration. While I am not studying, I spend a lot of time with my family. If we are not watching a Disney movie, we definitely have a Disney playlist in the background. I enjoy being active and getting a good workout in but only so that I can try new places to eat!

Growing up I wanted to be a sports scout and I have found a great alternative being a Recruiter. I’ve always said “As a recruiter, it’s my job to be your quarterback to put you in the best position possible. More than a recruiter, I’m your agent. My job is to figure out what skills, passions, and experiences you bring to the table and to find you your dream job.”
