Hey There, Wanderlusting Soul.

Real talk for a sec….

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…

Read Jess' Story

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 despite my fears, I decided to give it a try and ride this 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 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:  I could have made and saved thousands of dollars, in addition to saving time and headache.
If only I had mentors, people to guide me and show me 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


I created WanderlustPTs for aspiring traveling physical therapists.

Abby F, OTR - New Grad Occupational Therapist
“I found this course to be so helpful, and I don’t know how I would have done it without this course, especially since I’m such a planner. I researched traveling therapy a lot before I found this course, and it was great to see things that I never researched or considered come up in these lessons. If you have any hesitation about joining this course, DO IT! You will learn things you never thought of before and will be thoroughly educated on all you need to know in order to be ready for the experience of your life!”
Olivia, SPT - May 2018 Graduate
“Completing this program gave me the confidence that I could be successful as a traveler. It allowed me to feel more in control of my future career path and eliminated a lot of fear associated with the unknown. Initially, I was concerned about the price, but the investment was well worth it in the end.”

Jenn, SPT - May 2018 Graduate
“There isn’t a class in PT school about how to be a travel therapist. So for anyone that is interested in going this route with their career, this course will make a massive difference, and I wholeheartedly believe it will help people find better opportunities, enjoy traveling more, and debunk a lot of the myths out there about traveling. This course has the potential to open up travel therapy to so many therapists and help them actually SUCCEED and do so independently. I have already recommended this program to others.”

Kris, PT,DPT - May 2018 Graduate
Take this class!! Even if you think you won’t need it or that you can get the information elsewhere, this class had an amazing set-up that really guided me through the whole process of becoming a traveling therapist. I don’t know how students go into traveling therapy without this course! I am very thankful and relieved that I’m able to have this course to guide me!”

Bailey, SPT - May 2018 Graduate
“This online course was the BEST online course that I have taken, by far (and I have taken many). The small class size allows for a more intimate session with Jess and Gabe. The lessons were organized, with an incredible amount of resources, all to help get you started on the journey to become a traveling therapist.”

Dylan, SPT - May 2018 Graduate
“My biggest concern is being a new grad and being thrown into a complicated world of travel therapy. This program has given me the knowledge and confidence to succeed as a new grad traveler. I feel so much more prepared to attack traveling head on. Beyond the lessons, the handouts and worksheets alone are worth it.

Cheyenne, SPT - December 2018 Graduate
