About Our Guest Danielle LeVeck is a nurse and she's the master behind her insanely engaging Instagram channel (@nurseabnormalities). On average, each of her post receives more than 100 comments within the first 24 hours.
As a nurse, Danielle started her career in cardiac critical care. She then transitioned to cardiac surgical critical care, ICU travel nursing, and medical-surgical ICU patients.
A few years ago, she decided to share stories about these “nurse abnormalities” because every day, she is "in awe of how brilliant, instrumental, and extraordinary nurses are to healthcare. Becoming a nurse positively transformed my outlook on life and I hope to give back to the profession throughout her career."
Why did we choose Danielle? Danielle's energy and authenticity are contagious, which I noticed within 30 seconds of recording my conversation with her on Skype. What you see is what you get. Danielle brings her full self to every interaction and situation. There's no holding back. She's the type of interviewers we love having on the show.
