What is your favorite thing about working with nurses?

I love working with people who are passionate about caring for others. It’s very interesting to hear all of the stories about different cases and situations that happen in the healthcare industry. My mom is a nurse and this opportunity has given me a chance to learn a little more about what she does and has given me a greater respect for what she and all nurses do.

Why are you passionate about this industry?

Nurses save lives all day every day and the opportunity to be a part of matching nurses to opportunities where patients are in need of care is very rewarding. I love building relationships with people from all walks of life and I am very grateful to have this opportunity to build relationships with super heroes.

Where is your ideal travel destination?

I’d love to travel everywhere honestly. All over the US, Romania, Africa… everywhere honestly.

Family? Kids? Pets?

I do have an 80-pound dog named Haley that is half and half German Shepherd and Rot Weiler, a crazy cat named Whiskers and an old cat named Kit aka My Precious lol.

What do you love doing in your spare time?

I don’t have a lot of spare time but I do have a big aquarium that I enjoy taking care of and watching. I have a garden during the growing season that I call my back yard farm. If you’ve never grown your own food you should definitely start because it’s not as much work as you’d think and it’s fantastic!
