Three nouns and three adjectives to describe yourself:

Wife | Mother | Grandmother

Compassionate | Ambitious | Remarkable

(Brooke, Sheila’s recruiter, came up with the three adjectives to describe Sheila. Let’s all join in a collective “aweeee” for these two! #recruitergoals)

Let’s Keep it Professional

What led you to your profession?

The reason I got into traveling is so I can retire early and sit on my back porch, enjoying nature and my grandchildren.

What do you like most about what you do?

What I like most about traveling is meeting new people. I have life-long friends from people I’ve got to know from traveling. There’s always a new adventure around the corner.

What’s the best professional advice you’ve ever received?

As far as traveling advice goes, always have your paperwork in order. Make sure you carry your paperwork in a folder with everything that you need in it with you.

Alright, Travel Talk 

What’s the most important thing you consider about an assignment before taking it?

The things I consider before taking a job is location, housing prices, and pay. The size of the hospital is not what is important to me; the jobs aren’t that long.

Last but not Least

Why Triage?

I considered Triage as the company I wanted to travel with because of my recruiter, Brooke. She worked with me from the get-go and I’ve developed a wonderful relationship with her. I know she’s going to make sure that she can get me the best job.

Who is your recruiter and what do you like most about him/her?

Brooke Dutton. I’ve talked to other travel agencies but I cannot compare the recruiter I have to anybody else. If anyone deserves to be recognized it’s her. She is outstanding. I can call her any time—day or night, if she is on or off the clock. She’s why I’m with Triage. She cares about me.

Thanks for rallying with Team Triage, Sheila

…and thanks for being an outstanding recruiter, Brooke!
