You want to be a traveling physical therapist. 

You want to live life to the fullest, have the freedom to explore.

You want to work hard, but play harder. You want to continue to grow as a clinician.

But frankly, it’s a little overwhelming if you don’t know where to start, isn’t it?

(We’ve ALL heard the horror stories, after all…)

Good new: If you are looking for mentorship, you’re in the right place.

We created WanderlustPTs for people just like you.

People with passion. People with drive.

And most of all, people with a hunger to travel, live life to the fullest, and make money doing it.

Hi There! Jess and Gabe here…

We traveled as new grads.

As new grad traveling therapists, we feared loneliness, failure, vulnerability, and the unknown.  We did not know where or how to start, and helpful information about traveling physical therapy was hard to find.

We learned from our experiences.

However, we heard the benefits of travel PT outweighed the cons. So, despite our fears and lack of guidance initially, we set out on our travel therapy journey shortly after graduation, and it was the best decision we ever made. In addition to new experiences, friends, hobbies, professional and personal growth, financial stability, and more time-off, travel therapy has created a way of life that is beyond fulfilling.

We want to share everything we have learned with you.

Over these past 7 years, we have learned valuable information about the ins and outs of travel therapy. As ones who did not have mentors initially, we learned from our mistakes experiences. It is because of this that we want to pass on all that we have learned to you and help you to navigate the challenges of travel therapy and avoid pitfalls.  We LOVE what we do and the LIFESTYLE we have created, and we are excited to help you achieve it too! That is why we established WanderlustPTs and this traveling therapy blog! 

Until our path cross…
Jess and Gabe Renzi
