Position: President

I’m Yasaleah Anderson. I joined NSI Nursing in September 2011 – coming to the Agency with a strong background in real estate land development, law, business owner, and leadership. I utilized my business and marketing skills to help grow the company and broaden its base. I immediately realized I had made the right career change, as I found such an appreciation for the patients and the existing staff. I quickly realized NSI was a company I wanted to call home and dove right in. My history has included Business Development, pre-legal, executive management to President. I continue to look for new ways to be an integral part of my staff and the Tucson community, as I truly believe in putting people and patients first.

I’m Dawn Witt, Administrator and Staffing Supervisor at NSI. I’ve been with NSI for over 24 years, learning under the founders of NSI and continually gaining knowledge on how to coordinate and implement the very best quality and compassionate care to individuals in need, as well as providing support to our internal and external staff. I started in the field in 1998 providing care to patients, eventually moving into an internal position that developed over the years, obtaining experience in business management. I’ve worn many hats over the years. I love the rewarding work I do here with NSI. Being able to serve others fills my heart. In my free time, I love spending time with family and friends. Being outdoors, in the mountains or on the beach is my favorite! I love music and cooking, especially at the same time!

I started working for NSI while I was in high school doing data entry and continued this work through college. Toward the end of college, I had the opportunity to move into the Finance department at NSI and play a more important role in the company. NSI gave me the flexibility to work through school and I am happy to still be a part of the team here at NSI.

I began working at NSI as a receptionist while I was finishing my master’s degree at Georgetown University. When I graduated, I stayed on and found a home at NSI as a “jack of all trades” working as a compliance manager and locating areas of improvement in the company and growth opportunities. I progressed to being the sole project manager and lead trainer for new systems and operations such as our EMR, Continuing Education and improvement system for office staff and field staff, etc. Once the implementation was completed, I then began working in the finance and billing departments as the DDD billing manager and payroll. Then quickly moved up to be co-finance operation manager with Danny Anderson where we handle all finance and operations for NSI.
