Tell us about You. Where are you from? Family? Friends? Anything you'd like to share
I live in Cedar Rapids Iowa and grew up in Gilmore City, Iowa.
What prompted you to go into Healthcare?
I have a family full of health care professionals. My mom was a CNA and became an LPN when I was in 5th grade. My sisters are or have been CNAs in the past. I currently have a sister who is a Medical Assistant at a doctors office, another sister who is a Lab Tech at a hospital , and another who is a CNA for Alliance. My mom remains a full time LPN in Fort Dodge.
What is your favorite thing about Traveling?
I don’t have to travel very far to work as I live an hour from my contract facility.
What is the hardest part about traveling and how do you overcome it?
I've had a conflict traveling out of state and need to stay near home due to my fathers health. I have chosen to stay in Iowa and within reasonable driving distance to my parents.
How long have you been traveling? # of assignments? Locations? Traveling goals?
I was an agency nurse prior to working for Alliance. I had a contract at a facility that was supposed to be 6 weeks. It was extended and they bought out my contract. I stayed with that facility for 4 years.
Anything in particular that stands out to you when traveling with Alliance Medical Staffing?
I haven’t traveled very far as of yet but I hope to. Preferably near the ocean and mountains as I have never been out of the Midwest.
