#043 – Today’s episode features a very special guest, Jill Cohen. We are talking about a new passion project she is taking on, Save Restaurants, Feed Nurses. It’s a backline brigade of compassionate non-bedside nurses who have committed to supporting, recognizing, and nourishing our battle-weary frontline friends by providing meals for hospital staff from local restaurants.
If you happen to be a remote nurse or if you’re a non-nurse friend who’s interested, I invite you to listen to this episode, know more about this initiative, and together let’s resuscitate the love, generosity, appreciation, and support that we showered upon our frontline healthcare workers. They need it now more than ever.

Want to do more?
Jill can offer thousands of nurses the Save Restaurants, Feed Nurse’s blueprint, which they can use to coordinate similar efforts in their hometowns. Many telehealth nurses feel the same way I do about wanting to help their former coworkers. We can mobilize this feeling into real action that gives a much-needed lift to hospital staff and restaurants everywhere.

More About Jill
Jill grew up in Miami in the seventies and eighties playing tennis, roller skating, and doing aerobics. She went to Emory University, graduated Phi Beta Kappa, and earned an MA in English Literature from the University of Colorado. Afterward, Jill taught English abroad, taught writing at CU, and decided to pursue nursing. She initially wanted to specialize in sexual health education as a public health nurse and fix the whole teenage pregnancy problem. However, while earning her doctorate, she learned that hospital nurses get four days off every week. So, Jill became an ER nurse instead. She’s worked in Colorado, Wyoming, California, Florida, and Australia. She’s volunteered in Central America and pedaled as a medic on bicycle tours across Africa. After a 20-year ER career, she recently started a new chapter as an RN on the virtual team at One Medical Group, saving lives from her living room. Jill also volunteers at the humane society, travels extensively, backpacks, bike packs, dances, snowboards, teaches fitness, and is a varsity squad friend.
