Traveler of the Month: Heather J!

Name: Heather J.

City, State: Oakland, CA

Specialty: CVICU

Month: April

1. How did you get into travel nursing?

I had some major life changes happening and felt like I just needed to get away for awhile. I had a few friends that traveled and decided to give it a shot. Here I am 6 years later! 

2. What’s the best part about traveling?

I love getting to experience a new area every few months. Travel assignments give you enough time to actually get to know a place, without being there too long to get sick of it. I’ve also met some amazing people while traveling. And food. I love food.

3. You meet a first-time traveler in the Oakland area, which restaurant is a must for them to try?

I wouldn’t know because I’ve been socially isolating the majority of my time here 😂

4. What’s the best part about the Oakland area?

I love that it’s close to so many great places. San Francisco, Lake Tahoe, and Yosemite are all easy day trips from here.

5. Any advice for other travelers?

Do your research before taking a job.

My recruiter, Lynna! She’s been amazing to work with. She goes above and beyond for me and has become a friend as well as my recruiter. 

Congrats Heather! We’re so glad you joined the Axis team! 🙂
