Specialty:

Oncology/Telemetry.

Number of years working with Fastaff:

Five years and 14 travel assignments.

Why do you love working with Fastaff? 

I love working with Fastaff because I'm treated with respect and my recruitment team (Alisha Trujillo and John Cordova) make me feel like I’m part of a family. I also know that Fastaff will place me on assignment within a few days and I'm consistently working for Magnet status hospitals. I have been given opportunities to excel and build my nursing skills because of the Fastaff travel assignments I have worked.

What do you love about nursing?

I love caring for patients and educating them about their illness and what they can do to adjust their lifestyle upon leaving the hospital. I have met the most amazing people who I have bonded with and developed connections with through my nursing career.

What makes travel nursing rewarding for you?

I get to travel to new places to experience the culture, dining, outdoors, beaches, live events and museums. I also enjoy making new friends.

Tell me about a time where you felt more valuable/respected because of the experience and knowledge you gained from your Fastaff assignment.

I learned about radiation oncology, which was rewarding and gave me the opportunity to develop a training manual for future nurses to utilize after completing my assignment.

Describe the most miraculous or impressive thing you’ve witnessed or been a part of during your time as a nurse with Fastaff.

Helping a patient who had traveled from another state, only to be told she didn't meet the criteria for her procedure. The team of nurses put together their resources to buy the patient an airplane ticket to return home and even arranged a car service to the airport for her.  

How have you accomplished some of your personal and professional goals by traveling with Fastaff?

I have expanded my nursing practice and have the ability to take time for my family during a medical crisis. I can work in some of the most spectacular cities and have time to explore each city. I have been able to save for my retirement and have extra funds for emergencies.
