We would like to introduce you to Kelley. She’s a hard-working and passionate nurse that truly cares for her patients. We’ve heard such wonderful things about her from the facilities and coworkers.
Her recruiter nominated her for a #trustafftraveler spotlight to show their appreciation for all she does. Take a look below and get to know her a bit!
Tell us about YOU! Where are you from? Family? Friends? Pets?
I live in Pesotum, Illinois with my husband and two little boy kitties.
Why did you decide to go into healthcare?
I was a late college graduate. I completed my ADN at 42 and my BSN at 53! I have always been interested in helping others and learning new and exciting things.
What prompted you to start traveling?
I have always been a bit of a wanderer in my personal life but stayed tried and true in work life. After a lot of talking it out and deep contemplation, my husband and I decided this was the perfect time to see if this is what I wanted to do for “retirement.”
What was your first assignment like?
FANTASTIC!! People were friendly and helpful; making sure I always felt included in work as well as after work. I have made some wonderful friends who I will miss greatly when I leave here.
What’s your favorite thing about traveling?
Learning new procedures and different ways of doing the procedures I’m already familiar with.
What is the most challenging part about traveling? How do you overcome it?
I am internally a shy person, though I really try not to show it. Putting myself out there meeting new people is a challenge I need to face.
How many assignments have you taken and where?
This is my first and I am in the Cardiac Cath Lab in western Kentucky!
What advice would you have for someone who is thinking about starting their travel career?
Everyone is different and has different ways of doing things. Be helpful and learn, as well as share the knowledge that you have.
