Meet the AVAILABILITY Team
Lynda Stammer, Director of Staffing/Partner
Lynda first joined AVAILABILITY in 1986 as a Placement Specialist. With her career and education in accounting and then sales management, it was an easy transition to make some of the best accounting placements in the Central Valley. In 1991 Lynda purchased AVAILABILITY along with her business partner Nancy Rasmussen. Lynda continued to manage AVAILABILITY‘s placement division as well as adding three new divisions. Lynda’s love is recruiting and she receives more satisfaction from discovering that most difficult “find” than almost anything else.
Chris J. Peterson, Business Development/Partner
Chris is a graduate of Turlock High School and San Jose State University, where he obtained a business management degree in 1982. He first worked in the road construction industry as a credit manager in San Jose. After returning to the Central Valley, he spent 20 years in the office/business products industry marketing business machines, office supplies and services throughout the Central Valley. His focus on business development enabled him to successfully grow sales over 230% through strategic sales and marketing practices. He became a partner in AVAILABILITY Professional Staffing in January 2011 and manages all the sales, marketing, and business development programs.
Nicki Tyler, VP of Branch Operations
AVAILABILITY added Nicki as a partner in 2014. Nicki was raised in the Visalia area and spent seven years in the staffing and recruitment industry.

Candace Abell, Healthcare Placement Specialist
Candace joined AVAILABILITY Professional Staffing in 2007 managing the healthcare services placement division.
