.Meet Your Travel Nurse Consultant – Jessalynn Haley

American Traveler expert consultant Jessalynn Haley is a people person from the get-go. She's a graduate of Rutgers in New Jersey where she studied economics, psychology, and communications, and spent years in hospitality management and as a wedding planner. American Traveler prides itself on hiring staff like Jessalynn with diverse, well-rounded backgrounds.

She advises travel nurses to explore the highlights of travel on days off—to enjoy the landscape, the people, and new things to do that may be unique to a certain part of the country.

"One of my favorite places to visit is Bar Harbor, Maine," she said. "It's a must to ride along the loop in Acadia Park and eat steamy, fresh-baked popovers at the Jordan Pond House. Watching whales surface and plunge off the coast is a combination of excitement and serenity and an experience found in only a few U.S. destinations."

Originally from Concord New Hampshire, the consummate recruiter has been in Florida now for two years and has developed a passion for activities that get her "outside in the sunshine." Although she and boyfriend Shawn are very busy with their respective careers, the two find time together to enjoy the great outdoors.

Jessalynn says her life is enriched by the travel nurses and allied health professionals employed by American Traveler. They share their worlds and experiences with her and have taught her about places in the U.S. where she herself now longs to visit.

"I love being able to touch the lives of travel nurses," said Jessalynn. "My travelers know that I'm there for them any time of day and I will strive to find them the assignments they want."

Jessalynn recalls a story about a Respiratory Therapist in Pennsylvania whose marriage was saved by travel. The RT's husband had to leave town to find work and the two separated for months by 3300 miles and a lot of tears. As result of Jessalynn's diligence, the RT is now back with her husband and employed in the town where he found work.

"Thanks to Jessalynn, my husband and I are now living much improved lives in Phoenix, Arizona," said RT, Maacah. "She truly has made me want to sign another contract with American Traveler."

Jessalynn Haley

"The ultimate experience is not just being a travel nurse for American Traveler. As a consultant I like to test my own limits with hang gliding over the everglades in South Florida. This is not for the faint of heart but an unforgettable ride!"
