Kristin Sollars and Marci Ebberts are nurses at Saint Luke’s Hospital in Kansas City, Missouri. They worked side by side in the intensive care unit for years and grew so close they’ve come to call themselves “work wives.”

Kristin and Marci sat down at StoryCorps to reflect on how their work is more than just a job.
