Hi everyone! COACH KAILIN HERE!! I'm so excited that you're reading this bio of mine. I'm from Chicago and I'm a Travel Nurse! I discovered my passion for traveling when I went on a solo trip to Portugal, and from there have been to Italy, Iceland, Africa, Greece, France, and counting! When I went on a medical volunteer trip to Uganda, I knew it was time to merge traveling with my career. VOILA- a travel nurse!
While I was a competitive hip hop dancer for 10 years, I didn't start getting into the gym until the end of college when I graduated. During my first year as an RN, I noticed how crazy and tough a nursing schedule is (it taxes the mind, body, and soul) and I saw how much of a difference fitness made for me. I began to explore my strength, and my possibilities. I began optimizing my schedule instead of trudging through it. I discovered there is this whole new world of THRIVING, not just surviving. I didn't want to "get through my day", I wanted to make it mine. And fitness played a huge part in that. When I started tackling heavy things in the gym, I started tackling heavier things in life. I became an empowered woman with an insane schedule, and I felt INCREDIBLE. I realized it IS possible to hit your goals even if you're busy. I realized that nursing, while being one of the most trusted professions, is also one of the most unhealthy (high stress, lack of sleep, long hours, no time to pee/eat/debrief/recover, poor coping mechanisms aka food). It is my goal to marry fitness and healthcare. I believe the professionals who save your life should also be able to live theirs fully, happily, unapologetically, and without compromise. You DESERVE to love the body you're in. You deserve to love yourSELF. And I know how to get you there!
