Deanna had worked for me and my company trustaff as a travel nurse since 12/2018. We worked together in numerous locations including Alaska. She had one of the most upbeat, bubbly personalities of anyone I have ever known. I will greatly miss talking to and working with her. It was an honor to say that I knew her.
