Provider Spotlight Series: Dr. Celeste Jibben
Meet Dr. Jibben
For Dr. Celeste Jibben, the moldability of schedule and rural work locations offered by Wapiti are a perfect fit for her preferred lifestyle. “I live in the city, but I love working in rural locations,” she says. “Currently, I’m working 24-hour ER shifts, which gives me a lot of flexibility in scheduling my work days. I love working in Moose Lake, Minnesota.”
Because being an independent provider with Wapiti has been such a great fit for Dr. Jibben, she has stayed with the company for the past 15 years. As you listen to her talk about her family, work goals and hobbies, it’s easy to see the benefit of being an independent provider.
“The most important thing for me is a flexible work schedule. With Wapiti, I get to basically set my own schedule and choose the days I work and the days or weeks I don’t work.” This is especially important for Dr. Jibben because, as her daughter gets older, there are more and more activities to attend. “I love that I don’t miss any of my daughter’s events.”
In addition to attending her daughter’s events, Dr. Jibben loves the added opportunities she has to go skiing and enjoy other hobbies and goals. “This fall, I’m going back to school and taking classes on Mondays and Thursdays, so the ability to choose my schedule with Wapiti is key for making my class schedule work.”
Moving forward, Dr. Jibben sees herself staying part of the Wapiti family for a long time. “I think it’s very likely I will keep working with Wapiti - however, as I get older, I’m not sure how long I’ll be able to keep up with the 24-hour ER shifts!” Thankfully, with Wapiti there are many other options available for Dr. Jibben as she moves into new stages of her career. “I know I can always call them for support and advice,” she says.
After 15 years of partnership, Dr. Jibben knows she’s found a great fit with Wapiti. “I’m very picky about my work,” she says. “I’ve worked with Wapiti far longer than any other job I’ve had. That’s the best testimony I have for the benefits of independent provider opportunities with Wapiti. I get to do what I love to do, and Wapiti is a great fit for my career.”
We truly appreciate Dr. Jibben and all our providers. It’s a privilege to partner with such a great team to provide excellent care across the Midwest.
