A little about us

We unite great people with great opportunities across healthcare.

We asked the question, “How can we do this better?”

We take great pride in being a female and veteran owned agency with over 30 years experience. We wanted to know if we could do travel nurse staffing better. After breaking down what we knew, and building it back up with a fresh approach, we knew the answer was “Yes!” What started out as coffee at a Bistro, turned into this desire to make a difference for medical professionals, health care facilities and patients in need of the best care.

As a former teacher turned recruiter, I love being able to advocate for, and learn from, all of my nurses. When I’m not at work, you can find me living on Starbucks, buried in kid’s books, and dreaming of one day being a fitness fanatic. My husband Chad is my best friend and my favorite pastime is experiencing the world through the eyes of our daughters, Landry and Penelope.

Jacob Brown

Credentialing Specialist

Hi there! My name is Jake Brown, and I am one of the credentialing specialists here at CrossMed! I am married to my amazing wife Cierra and father to our beautiful daughter, Kenna (5). I was born and raised in Council Bluffs, IA (Go Hawks!) and now currently live in Omaha, NE. During my free time I enjoy playing golf, watching sports, visiting craft breweries, and spending my time doing anything and everything with my girls.

Before entering the travel nurse staffing world, I spent 7 years as a bartender. I love getting to meet new people and find out who they are, so I knew that my experience as a bartender would directly correlate to communicating with our nurses. I have been in the industry now for 5 years, with 4 years of experience as a credentialing specialist and 1 year as a recruiter. There is nothing more satisfying than creating that connection with a traveler and being able to clear them to start their assignment at a facility that needs the help. I joined CrossMed for the amazing people, the opportunity to grow and the positive impact our company has in the world of healthcare.

I love to organize, relax with a good book, hit up a brunch and spend time with family and friends.

She has dreams of being a college athlete and already has a few knocking on her door. Those dreams are coming true so I will be quite busy for many years to come being her biggest fan! I also have an amazing Man in my life (Dan) that always says I am his queen. Finally, we have two crazy fur babies in our home as well. Total opposites of each other we have, Rizzo, a 4 year old Great Dane puppy and Dottie, a 7 year old Jack Russel/Terrier mix who runs the show. In our rare down time, we like to venture out to my family’s 1300-acre farm in Western Nebraska. They have 200+ cattle, a few horses, a dog, and always tons of farm cats/kittens! Taking the four wheelers and side-by-sides out through the hills is our favorite!

I can’t wait to meet all of you amazing nurses and hear about all of your travels!

Hello, I’m Michelle Williams. Married to my amazing hubby Demetrius and a busy sports mama of three children: Chauncey (21), Nevaeh (16) and Elijah (14). I was born and raised in Omaha, NE but we frequently visit just about every Midwest state (and beyond) every summer during our softball and baseball travel season. We are on the road most weekends from March thru July and busy with high school sports in the fall. I love watching my kids do what they love and am sad to say we have less than 4 years until our last one graduates.

As you can tell, we don’t have much free time for about 9 months of the year but in our off months you can find us making amateur family videos, cooking every new recipe we find on Tik Tok, shopping, family movie nights, crafting, hosting our friends and family, watching ESPN and just making memories. Family is everything to me!

I have been in the travel industry for almost 7 years as both a compliance specialist and recruiter. I love what I do and love to help others begin their travel journey. I joined CrossMed for the amazing people and culture! It is both exciting and refreshing to play a part in a growing company that holds true their core values. I absolutely love the empowerment of women, the family-first mantra, and the ability to be who you are in an environment that is fun, supportive and whom all share the same professional goals!
