We are very excited to announce that our Clinician of the Month for August is Alicia Matthews! She is a wonderful representation of our CMS values, and truly cares about each patient she cares for. She got into nursing for the same reason many clinicians do: She wanted to help people. We’re so glad she chose this career, and based on how she got here, her family is too!
“At a young age I was inspired by my grandmother to take care of people. She was a foster parent, and well known to turn the lives around of newborns from drug addicted infants to healthy babies. Nothing made me happier than to help her, so I knew early on that I wanted to emulate her in whatever I did.
While attending nursing school at Coppin State University I worked as a CNA and sitter. With the support and guidance of my parents, I received my BSN at Coppin State University in 2012. I went on to work in various hospitals including Medstar Franklin Square Hospital, Holy Cross Hospital, Sinai Hospital, and Medstar Union Memorial Hospital. My clinical experience includes Orthopedic and Bariatric surgery, Hospice, Med Surg/Tele, and Intermediate Care.
I’ve always been interested in doing local travel and heard nothing but great things about Chesapeake Staffing Agency. I took a leap of faith with Chesapeake in January 2019, and haven’t looked back since. I am very satisfied with the efficiency of my recruiter, Laura and the overall professionalism of the agency. I’ve learned so much in the short time I’ve done agency and excited to continue to learn more!”
Her Recruiting Manager, Laura, has definitely been impressed by her skill level and readiness to adapt to new environments. “Alicia has worked several assignments with CMS and gets great feedback from her clinical supervisors. She is flexible, friendly, and reliable – a pleasure to work with!”
Clinicians like Alicia always make us proud to come to work every day, and support what they do. We’re excited to see how your journey with Chesapeake continues in the future!
