The Professional Side
What do you like most about what you do?
I like that each day is different (especially when traveling), the flexibility of schedule and the opportunity to both learn more every day but also bring a bit of compassion into what can be tough time for some patients.
Growing up, what did you want to be?
As a kid, I really wanted to be the Micro Machine Man. You may need to Google him. He talked fast, I did/do too, so it made sense.
Alright, Travel Talk
Give us one pro and one con to being a traveling medical professional.
Con—I miss my friends and family back home and being a part of their day-to-day.
Pro—Traveling has given irreplaceable moments, memories, friendships, experiences and knowledge. While still making it back home for the big or important moments!
What’s one thing that surprised you about being a medical traveler?
How much I would love it. I started traveling two years after getting my degree. I had originally planned to travel only for a year as an opportunity to make a little extra money. I’ve now been a tech 21 years and I’ve spent 13 of those years traveling. Aaaand I’m not quite finished.
Keeping it Real
The simplest answer would be because they’ve earned my trust and that makes the traveling experience easier and more enjoyable. Additionally, my experiences with the entire team—from the recruiters to the managers and the compliance officers—has always been positive. They’re a friendly, knowledgeable, and sometimes even funny bunch!
