Meet Your Travel Nurse Receptionist — Fran Golden
She’s the first voice you hear when you call American Traveler
Providing prompt, courtesy client service is our first priority and American Traveler Receptionist, Fran Golden, does it with her own special style and grace. “First impressions are the ones that last, so I always try to let callers hear the smile in my voice,” says Fran, a Springfield Massachusetts native and mother of three.
Fran honed her people skills in various professions, including cosmetology, apparel and retail, and is a key player in our travel nursing client communications.
“I have worked with Fran for the past twelve years. She is extremely friendly, accommodating and dependable. The traits Fran provides to American Traveler clients on the phone are also some of the same reasons she is a favorite among her co-workers in the corporate office - she has a big heart and warm caring nature. Fran is a pleasure to work with and a person of high integrity.”
- Mary Kay Hull, Vice President of Recruitment
Fran has been assisting travel nurses at American Traveler for more than four years, loves her garden and is often found gallivanting through boutiques and stores in South Florida, as she’s an avid shopper.
