 What is your most enjoyable part of this job?

The most enjoyable part of this job is being able to travel, meet a variety of clients and still be a nurse and take care of a client who needs my skills and experience.

 Where did you gain your experience and knowledge in the field of nursing? What area's of expertise do you have experience in?

I have been a nurse for 30 years. During those thirty years most of my time was in an Emergency room and Trauma Center. I am originally from Maryland and obtained my nursing license there. I have also done Recovery Room, Pediatrics, Orthopedics and Forensic Investigating for the State of Maryland. My husband and I moved to Florida in 1998.

 When you are not flying what do you do?

When I am not flying, I work full time at St. Mary's Hospital in the Trauma Resus Unit. And when I'm not there, I do love to go out and play golf with friends.

 What has been your most interesting transport? Why is that? 

My most interesting transport was bringing a client back from Rome. I was lucky in the fact that I had a few hours and got to see a few of the historic areas of Rome. My client and his companion were a great help in giving me directions to get around on the train system. On the flight back, I was able to assist another passenger on Air Italia. The flight crew had paged for any medical personnel for assistance. They knew I was there but they didn't want to bother me. I let them know that I was willing to help. As I watched "3 Doctors" take care of this passenger, I went and offered my assistance, as it was obvious to me that they were having some problems. They were most grateful that I came and gave them some help. The passenger did fine in the end. However, it turns out that the 3 Doctors were dentists en route to a convention in Ft. Lauderdale!! The moral being, find out what kind of Dr. is answering the call!

 What would you tell future clients of CME?

If you, as a future client, need additional help either with medical needs or companion needs, CME uses only well-qualified and experienced medical personnel. We love what we do!!
