We’ve often mentioned that our traveling medical professionals are more than their job titles — they’re like family. Some have been a part of that family since the start, others joined the family later on, but all hold a special place in our hearts. So, just as a good family should, we like to show them off from time to time to give them an opportunity to let their spirit, personality and character shine. This month, we’re taking the opportunity to highlight Alison, a registered nurse who’s equally infatuated with great music and all the genuine pleasures that life has to offer.
We like to ask each traveler of the month to tell us what makes them so special and a great asset to the Triage family. Here’s what Ali had to say:

I have had 4 assignments in 4 years, and 1 year at each assignment!
I was referred to Triage by another traveler from Triage. This is my 1st company that I have worked for and it is my current company.
