Specialty:

PICU.

Number of years working with Fastaff:

Why do you love working with Fastaff? 

Fastaff is the first travel agency I have worked with. I love that what you see is what you get.

What do you love about nursing?

It’s rewarding; lending a helping hand and taking care of kids. Taking care of kids is great because I see myself as a big kid.

What makes travel nursing rewarding for you?

Being able to see different people and different places. New York is my hometown and being able to spend time with my family is rewarding. It also allows me to branch out and try new things. Plus, the pay is amazing.

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

My first assignment with Montefiore was at the ICU adult center when they went live with Epic. When I transferred to the Montefiore Children Center, I was new and they were still learning Epic so I was able to be a resource and help the nurses when they had questions.

What has been your most challenging Fastaff assignment and how did you feel that impacted your worth as a nurse afterwards?

The most difficult part is dealing with the new policies and procedures of different hospitals.

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

A young eight-year-old girl had a cancerous brain tumor and when she came in, the doctors said there was nothing more they could do for her besides make her comfortable. It was very impressive that her mother would not give up on her. The mother’s willpower to never give up kept her daughter fighting even though the doctors said there was nothing else they could do. No matter how exhausted or sad the mother was, she came and stood strong and never let her daughter see her cry. 

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

The benefits of traveling are being able to make more money and being able to pay off my debt.
