"I love that Coast gives me the freedom to choose my own schedule and always respects my days off. I get to work at top hospitals when I want to work and enjoy holidays, weekends and vacations with my friends and family. I've been with Coast for a long time and couldn't imagine a better work situation for my lifestyle. "
