We interviewed travel nursing professional Anne two years ago on assignment in Tucson, AZ. She had just turned 30 and had met engineer Matt at a singles meeting after an adrenaline-packed day at work. Two years later, Anne and Matt were married in the Dominican Republic, “It was a picture perfect dream wedding” she said.
Anne started travel nursing with American Traveler almost fresh out of nursing school. She burned out quickly as a staff RN, she said, and looked to travel nursing to get her life back. Four assignments, a new husband and a newly purchased home later, Anne has her life back and is happier than ever.
“I planned on only a 13-week travel nursing job in Tucson, but after meeting Matt, I renewed the contract several times and spent more than a year at the hospital there,” she said.
Anne likes the float pool and works Med / Surg a lot, she said. She’s been travel nursing with feline friend, Icy, since day one and has recently adopted a poodle named Munch. “ American Traveler is really good at finding housing for pets .”
Anne commends American Traveler consultant Janet B. on supporting her efforts as a travel nurse every step of the way. American Traveler accommodations are superb, Anne says, and housing is always close to assignment and amenities. Anne’s the outdoorsy type and enjoys hiking, mountain biking and camping, but the best part of all she says, “Is that I met my husband Matt.”
