|“Hello readers, my name is Rachel Hughes. I joined the team here as a Nurse Practitioner in January, so you may have seen me around the office. I started my nursing career in a Surgical/Trauma ICU in St. Louis, MO, and over the last few years I have taken multiple travel nursing positions across the country. Last year, I was able to put my ICU experience to work while taking care of COVID-19 patients in California.
Outside of work, you can find me on my mountain bike or hiking mostly. I love to travel, whether it be finding my favorite local spot or exploring a new country. I’m excited for the opportunity to work with Dr. Herron and the rest of the team here at Elizabeth Institute and I look forward to getting to know the community better.
