Our “It’s Time for Nashville” contest winner, Mary Rothrock, was kind enough to provide us with the following report and pictures from her recent trip to Nashville. Her prize included: A three day, two night stay at Gaylord’s Opryland Resort, tickets for the Opryland performance on Saturday night, and dinner before the show at the famous Old Hickory Steakhouse. Here’s what Mary had to say about her weekend getaway…
Fidelity On Call CEO, Pat Drake, attended the 2018 National Women’s Business Owners Conference for the National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO) in Spokane, Washington.
One of the highlights was the panel of women who talked about how they changed the plight of women business ownership within 1988. This was a challenge many women in business have faced, as less than 30 years ago, women who wanted a business loan in many U.S. states were required to provide a signature from a male relative. The “final straw” for these ladies was when a woman business owner had to take her 17 year old son out of school to co-sign her loan!
Pat has helped to pave the way for improvements for women in business to thrive. She continues to help empower and mentor women by supporting the local chapter of NAWBO through volunteer work and sponsorship of events.
As the winner of our “It’s Time for Nashville” contest, Mary Rothrock stopped by the office to get everything she needed for her weekend trip. While in Nashville, Mary will be enjoying:
- A three day, two night stay at Gaylord’s Opryland Resort
- Tickets for the Opryland performance on Saturday night
- Dinner, before the show, at the famous Old Hickory Steakhouse ($250 value)
- A travel allowance of $300
We can’t wait to hear back from Mary and see pictures of her trip!
From the beginning the heat was on and the competition was cooking. The winners were dedicated and determined not to burn out. Today we are FIRED UP as our contest has come to an end! A big thank you to everyone who participated – hashtagging (#GetFiredUpFOC), sharing recipes, pictures, videos and anything else you could come up with to get points to be the winner.
Over the course of the contest we got to award Man Crates.
The first winner of our Man Crate went to Ben.
Our second Man Crate winner was Chad.
Our third winner was Christine.
Our 4th Man Crate went to Ashley.
Our next to the last prize went to Serena.
The final Man Crate winner was Lonna.
But, in the final few days of the contest things heated up as the “money muscle” went on the grill and a cloud of smoke rose that obscured any competition! Way to throw down that final sizzle . . . Ben Anderson who is now King of the Grill! Ben won a Weber Genesis II Copper 4-Burner Liquid Propane Gas Grill with Bluetooth thermometer and cover.
In response to the win Ben said, “Thanks everybody!! Planning cookout now!!”
Congratulations are also in order for our runner up, Chad Malinowski who smoked the rest of the competition. As our second place winner, Chad gets a John McLemore Signature Series 800-Watt Stainless Steel ElectricVertical Smoker.
We thank everyone for participating in the Get Fired Up Contest. Your enthusiasm sure fired us up!

In 2006 when The Joint Commission started accrediting travel nursing agencies like Fidelity On Call, we were excited to get in their program. Although we have always been dedicated to quality, we felt that, with the receipt of the Gold Seal from the Joint Commission, our customers would see that we meant what we said.
We are proud to report that The Joint Commission was in our office for our 2018 audit and we passed with flying colors. They told us they couldn’t find anything wrong. As a matter of fact, we are voluntarily doing several things they wished were done by others.
Our internal team – who put so much effort into ensuring we are continually in compliance and moving forward in all of our processes – always takes a sigh of relief when the official audit is over. But, we appreciate our relationship with The Joint Commission. Our day-to-day representative and their auditors are always there to help if we have questions or to share vital industry information with us so we avoid the pitfalls.
So, here’s to another Gold Seal! We vow to never let down on our commitment to quality.
