Jamie has been traveling with Trinity for nearly a year. In three short years as a RN, she’s mastered Telemetry, Pediatric MS and MS. Facilities where Jamie accepts assignments often request for her to extend and renew contracts. Jamie’s desire for doing a great job is evident to everyone, including her patients, Trinity and her recruiter!
Jamie is a 27 year old, small town girl, from Hurley, VA that loves her two beautiful Border Collie fur babies and is passionate about her three muscle cars! When Jamie’s not rocking it out on the job, she’s enjoying her custom Corvette and Camaros! “I guess you could say I like fixing people and cars!” Jamie is one nurse that loves to keep it in the fast lane.
Jamie started travel nursing so she could see our beautiful country and help people along the way. Jamie’s great-grandfather and grandfather were both doctors, and her grandmother and mother are both RN’s. “I guess you could say nursing is in my blood.” Jamie is carrying on the family legacy.
Jamie also enjoys exploring the areas where she travels. From museums, zoos, local festivals, fairs and beaches, she stays busy and takes advantage of the freedoms and joys her travel assignments allow her to appreciate!

July 2015 | Bill Fossett
Bill Fossett spent the first half of his life working in business, as an accountant and as the owner of a restaurant in Wilmington, NC. Interested in changing direction in his life, combined with the economic downturn of 2008, prompted him to return to school to pursue nursing.
While working towards a nursing degree Bill worked as an ED Tech until graduation in 2010. He began his professional nursing career working part time at an adolescent psychiatric facility and a full time position on a cardiac med-surg unit.
In 2014, Bill again returned to school working towards a MSN-FNP. Looking for additional challenges, and clinical sites for his MSN led him to travel nursing in January 2015.
"Becoming a nurse is the best career and life choice I have ever made. It provides me with the reward and personal satisfaction of helping others. I enjoy the opportunities provided by travel nursing and working with Trinity."
"Bill portrays compassion in his work and towards everyone he comes in contact with. Bill is an asset to the Nursing profession."

Christina Mulkey has been a nurse for 4 years including being an ICU nurse for 2 years. Originally from Pensacola, FL, she has been traveling with Trinity for over a year having been to Maryland, Arizona, Nevada, and Colorado so far! Christina is currently working on her doctorate to obtain a Nurse Practitioner degree via the online program offered through the University of South Alabama.
Christina loves traveling; the uniqueness of each hospital and the staff she gets to meet. Traveling gives her the opportunity to travel with her husband and their little dog Bailey. They've gotten to go site-seeing all over the U.S., visiting big cities like San Francisco and Washington D.C., as well as National Parks such as the Grand Canyon, Yosemite, and the Rocky Mountains.
"I am just a nurse, and that is all I need to be. I receive validation every day from my patients through their smiles and thank yous. My focus is to provide excellent care so that my patients can reach outcomes that are best for them. I use my stethoscope to save lives and make a difference every day I go to work."
"I've worked with Christina for over a year now and everywhere she goes, positive comments follow. She is not only an amazing nurse, but I've quickly come to learn what a kind and sincerely genuine person she is. I am lucky to call her not only my travel nurse, but my friend."

Jeffrey was most recently a Clinical Supervisory Nurse with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, working in federally declared disaster areas with a team of 35-72 other people. He travels with his 3-year-old cat, Meep, who loves car rides and always greets him after his many shifts.
Jeffrey follows these simple life principles: Love like there's no tomorrow; take no one and nothing for granted; and pay it forward, whether it be in kind gestures or acts of kindness.
"People and patients usually see me at their worst. I do my best to alleviate a stressful situation with either a smile, touch, listening ear, or especially laughter."
"While I was admitted, I had some amazing people take care of me and try to make me smile and laugh and one of those Angels was RN Jeffrey Anderson. He continually checked on me and made me smile and helped me to laugh a little. I'm so grateful and words can't describe how I feel, honestly."

has been a cardiovascular travel nurse since last December when she accepted her first contract with Trinity. She and her husband enjoy traveling together, with their sweet yellow Labrador retriever Zoey, who loves being out, sniffing and checking out leaves and shrubs,just saying hello to everybody.
Maria tells us that she and her husband love to drive, enjoy the scenery and be with each other. She sings to him with her out of tune voice just to keep him awake, and they tell stories, plan for the future and talk about their kids (Ilai 23 and Liam 20).
Earlier this year Maria received a Daisy Award from WakeMed Raleigh for her excellent patient care, when she was recognized by a patient who wrote “She has touched my heart, and made me feel that life has so many wonderful things to look forward to.”
“Maria is a great travel nurse and is always asked to renew! She always has a positive attitude and willing to go above and beyond, just a pleasure to work with. I am glad she is part of the Trinity family!”
