Traveler of the Quarter: Kelley

One of the ways we recognize our incredible caregivers at MSSI is through our Traveler of the Quarter award where our team members nominate travelers who have made a positive impact in the lives of their patients and at their facility, where they’re at for only a short amount of time.

This quarter, we want to give a huge congratulations to Kelley, MSSI ICU Travel Nurse, nominated by her recruiter Jessica.

“I’ve had the privilege of working with Kelley on her first travel assignment! She was nervous to take the leap into travel nursing but after a few assignments, she’s so glad she did. Kelley is a dedicated and skilled nurse. Recently, after working her normal shift, she would help take care of her mom after hours as she was recovering from a heart attack. With such a caring heart, I would want a nurse like Kelley to take care of me or my family” says Jessica.

Congratulations to Kelley and thank you for all you do!
