In this special episode, recorded live at the 2019 AMSN Convention, the Med-Surg Moments Hosts converge on the exhibit hall floor in Chicago to share their reflections and insights about the AMSN Convention and their journey as hosts of Med-Surg Moments, the AMSN Podcast.

Alissa Brown, BSN, MSN, RN, FNE is a clinical nurse educator from the University of Utah Health. She has been working in the health care industry for almost 12 years, and started her nursing career as a med-surg bedside nurse on an Ortho, Trauma, and Surgical Specialty Unit. It was through that experience in the med-surg unit where she discovered a passion for education, and pursued a master’s degree. She is a lifelong learner, and loves to teach.  Born and raised in Salt Lake City, Utah, she's not all work, and definitely enjoys play! She loves to travel, and tries to plan as many vacations each year as she can with family and friends. Alissa loves to read, listen to podcasts, and geek out to documentaries and crime shows on the weekends. She's a total fair weather fan when it comes to Utes Football, but will cheer in all the right places, or get mad when her husband tells her to during a game. Alissa is looking forward to conversations together on this AMSN podcast!

Evie Harris, BSN, MA, RN, FNE lives and works in Baltimore, MD and has been an RN for 4 years, and is also a Forensic Nurse Examiner. She works on a busy med-surg unit in the roles of staff RN, Charge RN, unit education council representative, & preceptor. Evie has previous careers in management, teaching, & on-air radio co-producer/co-host. Her future career goals include nurse management & nurse administration, as well as nursing entrepreneurial endeavors. Evie enjoys spending time with her daughter, traveling, laughing at all things, and anywhere there is music, you will find her singing & dancing, even at work, with her patients & colleagues. 

Chelsea Parker RN, BSN, CMSRN was born and raised in Newport News, Virginia. She attended the University of Virginia and graduated in 2016 with a Bachelor’s of Science in Nursing. Since then she has pursued geriatric and palliative care nursing and developed a love for general medicine, which is where her foundation for med-surg nursing was built. As a young nurse looking for ways to bridge engagement between generations of nurses, she is excited about what this podcast will mean for AMSN.
