We have many Traveling Medical Professionals all over the country that work in some very cool locations. Being part of the Triage team means you’re part of our family and to celebrate our family, we decided to feature one of our traveling medical professionals each month on our blog and through our social media channels. Let’s get to know each other a little better!
Meet Kayla, an ICU Travel Nurse that’s been traveling for 4 years now!
“Kayla has been a traveler with Triage for several years. As one of my first travelers, Kayla was a new recruiter’s dream – she worked hard, was always upfront and honest, and she did her very best to keep me on my toes.
Kayla has a wonderfully upbeat personality – it doesn’t matter how difficult the assignment is or how long she might wait for an interview, Kayla always keeps a smile and looks to the positive side of every situation.
Kayla is also an active member of the Gypsy Nurse community and constantly promotes the Triage experience to the many travelers she interacts with. She has been a fantastic ambassador and represents everything we look for in a Triage traveler.” – Aaron K., Account Manager

Triage has always exceeded my expectations in every way.
