What have you been up to since graduation?
I am currently working as a traveling ER RN. I am assigned in Visalia, California. Since I’ve graduated, I moved to Nashville, Tennessee and lived there for two years before I started traveling.
What's your favorite thing about your job?
My favorite thing about travel nursing is continuously learning and developing my nursing practice as well as traveling across the nation.
What's your favorite thing about the city you currently live in?
I love being a short 30 minute drive from the Sequoia National Forest!
What do you do in your free time?
I like to work out, do yoga, hike, meal prep, and explore the cities that I live in.
Do you have any other future career or life goals?
A goal of mine is to invest in passive income via real estate and eventually obtain my master’s degree to focus on preventative healthcare and alternative medicine.
What do you miss most about Mizzou?
I miss Saturday football game tailgates!
What do you miss most about Theta?
I miss living with my friends and winning Homecoming my junior year of college.
What is one thing you took away from being a part of Theta in college that has shaped you into the woman you are today?
Theta has definitely helped shape my professional side with my career and inspired me to continue to learn and grow. Being a leading woman looks different for everyone, but in my current path, I have taken on extra responsibilities including enhancing knowledge through non-required classes and volunteering as a preceptor.
Do you have a specific favorite Theta memory?
My favorite Theta memory would have to be waking up at the crack of dawn as a senior to give advice to the newest member class on Faurot Field.
Is there anything else you'd like to add?
I want to tell the younger nursing majors to feel free to reach out if they are inspired to become a travel RN!
