You’re an ambitious and adventurous physical therapist, new grad, or student, who fears burn-out in your career, so…
Let’s be honest with each other.
Hands up if you feel like life should consist of a little more than
– the monotony of a typical 9-5 job,
– seeing back-to-back patients,
– and a lifetime sentence of paying- off student loans?
If you are really honest with yourself, maybe you are second guessing this career all together.
You love helping people, but with your current salary, you are not sure if the juice is worth
the squeeze your student loan bill.
Not to mention, your measly accrued vacation time keeps you from really exploring all the exotic places you dream of – and the time that you DO have to yourself consists of catching up on tireless documentation for insurance companies.
You feel like there has got to be a better way, and it’s just a matter of time before your burnt-out career becomes extinguished.
You want freedom of time and location.
You value personal and professional growth.
And you want to design a career that fits your desired lifestyle,
Instead of finding a lifestyle that fits your career.
So, you’re considering travel therapy (yes, even as a new grad).
That’s why you’re here.
But frankly, travel therapy feels a little overwhelming if you don’t know where to start, doesn’t it?
(Plus, we’ve ALL heard the horror stories, about it…)
And then there’s the fear of leaving home, the familiar, the comfortable, friends and family, and venturing into the great unknown…
I get it. I feel you. I know because I was you-
How I went from overworked, new grad PT to helping thousands of aspiring traveling therapists build a career and life they love.
Before there was a top-ranked travel therapy blog and webinar.
Before the best-selling online travel physical therapy course.
Before the 20 travel assignments…
There was a overworked, new grad PT and homebody.
Eager to learn.
With incurable Wanderlust.
Scared to death to leave the comforts of my hometown and a consistent job.
Private Practice, 2 Sedans, & a Thousand Little Missteps…
Here’s the TRUTH-
I didn’t always want to be a travel therapist.
Once upon a time, I was content with the monotony of the “9-5” and conforming to the social norm of “settling down.”
I was “thriving” (ie. documenting during lunches and skipping bathroom breaks) in a permanent job and running a private practice clinic on my own.
Like many of you, I was overworked and underpaid as a bright-eyed, ambitious new grad in an over-saturated PT market.
Other classmates were buzzing about this “unicorn” called travel therapy.
But at that time, I was scared to death to leave the comforts of my hometown and the consistent security of a sub-par paycheck.
I was fearful of failure, loneliness, vulnerability, and venturing into the unknown.
The thought of leaving the comfort of friends and family was paralyzing.
The first few years were rough.
But my “Prince Charming” at the time really wanted to travel, so we loaded up our 2 sedans and decided to ride the unicorn that was travel therapy.
Struggling each step of the way…
– Deceitful recruiting companies led astray.
– Botched interviews made for a less-than ideal job.
– Poor planning resulted in wasted time and money …
– Headache, tears, blah, blah, blah, etc.
Learning from our
mistakes experiences along the way.
I quickly realized I needed to share this wealth of knowledge with others who want to pursue this traveling therapy lifestyle too.
Epiphany: We could have made and saved thousands of dollars, in addition to saving ourselves time and headache.
If only we had mentors, people to guide us and show us the “step-by-step, how-tos” of travel therapy.
So, I fixed that, wrote down everything about travel therapy, and in 2016,
In order to share the how-tos of this unique lifestyle, and to make your journey into travel therapy a smooth one
