Fate took hold of Amanda upon returning to New Jersey for assignment. She hadn’t been home in a few years and was anxious to see family and friends. Amanda didn’t know Vincent, but met him by happenstance at a dinner party, where the two of them instantly hit it off and began eating from each other’s plates. A few weeks later, Vincent and Amanda set a date to go ice skating in Rockefeller Plaza and see the sights.
“It was like a dream come true. A horse drawn carriage with red velvet pulled to the curb and took me and Vincent around Central park,” she said.
An unsteady carriage caused Vincent to get down on both knees, but he got the job done. He asked Amanda to marry him and the rest is travel nurse history.
What Amanda loves most about travel nursing, she said, “is you never know what’s going to happen or where the wind will take you. You travel to places you’ve never been, see amazing things, meet great people, gain a variety of medical knowledge and even get married.”
“Most importantly, you learn so much about yourself, you become your own unique life experience.”
