Why did you decide to go into healthcare?
I was an Army medic, a lot of my Army medic friends went into nursing after the Army so I decided to give it a shot as well.

Wray, Colorado. I really enjoyed it!
What’s your favorite thing about traveling?
Just a drive in the country can be a beautiful adventure.
What is the most challenging part about traveling? How do you overcome it?
Being away from family back home… Facebook is a good way to share your experience with others.

I am on my first assignment, but I like it so much I extended my contract here in Wray, Colorado.
What advice would you have for someone who is thinking about starting their travel career?
Take a friend… You won’t be lonely and you’ll have someone to share the adventure.
