1. How did you get into travel nursing?
Jennifer: At my first hospital, countless travelers cycled through, and after hearing their stories I came to realize it encompassed everything I wanted out of life. How can you beat getting paid to see the country while gaining a myriad of experience in your career?
Eric: I had always loved to travel and see new people and places. However, the real reason that my traveling career took off was that I met this awesome woman who is now my wife during an assignment of her own. So long story short I was kidnapped.

2. What’s the best part about traveling?
Jennifer: After answering question one, to top it all off, I met someone to join me on my travel adventures and life adventures. 🙂 Taking on the world like this with your best friend is an absolute dream!
Eric: Just having the ability to travel to areas I haven’t been to before is my favorite part. We get a lot of unique experiences and it also doesn’t hurt that you can get out of an area when the weather isn’t to your liking.
3. You meet a first-time traveler in the Bay City area, which restaurant is a must for them to try?
We lived in Freeland, and a two-minute drive away was a Mexican restaurant called Entre Amigos that we were obsessed with!
4. What’s the best part about the Bay City area?
The Bay City area is quaint with kind people. What we loved best was being able to drive to the Upper Peninsula in a day and see the wonders there!
