As a Navy spouse, Hartless has had the opportunity to work in a variety of settings.

She began her nursing career in the emergency department at Vanderbilt Children's Hospital where her knowledge and passion for pediatrics flourished. The following year she relocated to Pensacola, FL, and cared for children on an inpatient hematology/oncology unit.

In 2014, she arrived in Hampton Roads and was thrilled to continue her career at CHKD as an office triage nurse. She later returned to school to become a nurse practitioner and is grateful to now provide primary care to kids in her community.

Outside of work, she enjoys traveling and spending quality time with her family.
