My name is Jenny Traub and I have been a registered nurse for 8 years. I spent 3 of them as a travel nurse where I took assignments all over the state of California. I have experience in the ICU, PCU, telemetry and surgical floors. I enjoy traveling the world, spending time with good friends, hiking, the beach, and playing all different kinds of sports. It is naive to think we have unlimited amounts of time here on earth. We have one life and I try to live every day to the fullest.
