What do you enjoy most about your work?
I enjoy the personal and professional relationships I get to make with all of the nurses I work with. Not only do I get to play an impact on the financial lives of the nurses doing the hard work on the frontlines, but I also get to create lasting friendships while doing it! I have some of my best friends all around the country, and I get to work with them every single day.
What do you do for travelers that you feel is completely unique to you?
I commit to be a resource whether a nurse is working with me or not. I am not just here for the transaction, I am fully invested in the growth and success of the individual and foster a relationship of "real talk" to support my travelers however I can.
What is your favorite thing about working with travelers?
Hearing the stories and living vicariously through my travelers' adventures.
What is your most valuable advice for the travelers you work with?
Enjoy it. Not many people get the chance to see and work in multiple locations throughout the year. What a way to take in the beauty of our country, and make a good living while doing it.
Why are you passionate about this industry?
I have always been very passionate about healthcare. There are honestly too many stories of how nurses saved members of my family to retell them all, but I am eternally grateful for the work that each and every nurse in the world puts in.
Where did you grow up?
I grew up right here in Dayton, OH and a little Podunk town called Dolores, CO. Went back and forth between the 2 places while growing up.
What are your favorite places to travel?
Anywhere I haven't been yet.

Tell us about your family or pets
My wacky family is part of the reason I moved to Ohio permanently. My Mom is one of the most important people to me, and we spend a lot of time together. My dog Kimber (Long-Haired German Shepard) and my girlfriend Angelica Dieli are my rocks that I live with and the start to our small future family!
What's your favorite food?
Pizza. Simple as that, hands down. Pizza. Not a pizza snob either, there's a place in my heart for gourmet pizza, just as much as there is greasy pizza.
What is your favorite pump-up song?
Long Time - Boston
What's your all-time favorite hobby?
I honestly have too many to count. But the hobby that I have had for the longest time and have maintained is wood-working. Mostly furniture and trinkets, but I've also been known to make the occasional mini-ramp!
