Hired Power Transitional Recovery Services welcomes Deidre Fitzpatrick as Chief Operating Officer, where she will work closely with the leadership team continuing to grow and develop the services Hired Power is able to offer through her skills and knowledge of addiction and behavioral health from a nursing perspective.
Hired Power is thrilled to announce the addition of Deidre Fitzpatrick to the senior leadership team. Deidre joins Hired Power with over 7 years’ nursing experience working in the field of addiction and behavioral health, most recently as a nurse manager of a 36 bed locked psychiatric unit, 31-bed chemical dependency unit, and an outpatient chemical dependency program for Mission Hospital. Prior to managing these departments, Deidre worked as a bedside nurse in both a locked psychiatric unit and a chemical dependency unit.
Deidre expressed her enthusiasm “I am blessed to have the opportunity to work beside my mom, Nanette Zumwalt, in a field that I am so passionate about. The reputation that comes with Hired Power is one to be admired and I am so happy to be a part of the team.”
Before transitioning to the nursing field of addiction and behavioral health, Deidre worked in the education field as a preschool teacher. Deidre obtained her Bachelor’s in Child and Adolescent Development and then went on to get her Masters in Nursing Leadership and Education.
Deidre grew up in Orange County, CA where she currently resides with her husband and two children. Deidre’s passions include spending time with friends and family, being outdoors, party planning, crafting, gardening, and cooking.
“I have worked with Hired Power extensively in collaboration with Clearview Treatment Programs’ individualized outpatient program. I am always impressed with their effectiveness and professionalism.”
“Thanks again for being there for us and guiding us through some rough waters. Your kindness and genuine concern deeply touched my soul and we are all grateful our paths crossed when they did. You are a truly gifted professional, keep on doing what you do so well.”
“I just want to thank Hired Power for the PRA. He was a perfect match and I can’t say enough…. He was intensely committed. This is the first time I have been clean in over 30 years. Thank you again.”
