CEO and Co-Founder

Ryan Lee

Having been raised by entrepreneurs, Ryan's passion for development and startups collides in his role as CEO. Ryan brings to the table his background as a startup founder, team-builder, investor, leader, advisor, and previously as an entrepreneurial attorney. A driven leader, Ryan is well-positioned to oversee HireMe Healthcare’s pursuit of its goal of applying its values towards solving the nursing staffing shortage crisis. Ryan’s most humbling and intensive experience “had to have been designing a refugee-focused clean energy startup from the ground up in just 6 months in Uganda; but our team made it strong enough that not even COVID stopped it from launching and making a huge impact!” Ryan is most proud of recruiting the team he gets to work with around the clock, building HireMe towards its current growth stage.

COO and Co-Founder

Kaitlyn Rice

Kaitlyn launched her professional career by joining two burgeoning startups in Chicago, where she learned how to navigate the unique challenges startups face. It’s here that her forward-thinking mindset was honed; every hurdle presents a new opportunity if you know how to stay positive and adapt. From Chicago, Kaitlyn returned to Oregon, where she supported enrollment objectives for her alma mater, Willamette University. Here she managed the team of student Ambassadors and a diverse range of territories, from New England to her home state of Idaho to Los Angeles. Wanting to grow professionally, Kaitlyn left to Vienna and eventually Ethiopia, where she worked for the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights in the United Nations East Africa Regional Office. It is with this background that Kaitlyn joined the HireMe Healthcare team and, today, leads its operations and technical development. Ask her about why she thinks what HireMe is building is so special - you’ll feel her passion as she describes the technology and goals!
