Say Hello! to Allison Emrich — Therapy Recruiter
Nice to Meet You!I’ve always had a passion for working with people- having the ability to help fantastic therapists grow their career through the adventure of travel is extremely rewarding. My background in the healthcare field has given me an understanding of the passion, dedication, and hard work that it takes to be a quality therapist. I enjoy working with the best of the best and love to hear about all of amazing places my therapists visit on their travels with me!
Fun FactI am originally from the great midwestern state of Iowa but made the move to Colorado with my fiancé over a year and a half ago! You can’t beat waking up to the mountains every day. When I am not out exploring the mountains, you can find me with a glass of green tea- wedding planning the day away!
Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to bring housewares with me?
No, you don't need to bring your housewares with you. Advanced provides fully furnished housing, however you are free to bring with you whatever you choose.
Can new grads travel?
Of course! Especially with Advanced. We paved the way for “new grad travel” with our ever growing University Program that offers layers of support to new grads wanting to travel right out of school. With this program, you will receive a clinical mentor, unlimited access to online CEU’s, tuition reimbursement, and our recruiters will make sure that first placement is “new grad friendly”. This means that there will likely be another person of your discipline on staff. We rarely, if ever, have new grads say “I wished I had waited to travel”. But we have a lot of experienced travelers say “I wished I had done this sooner, or right out of school”.
What is the most important aspect of having a successful travel experience?
Picking the right company! Our recruiters are some of the best in the business. There is nothing contractually binding you to Advanced Medical for your long term travels (outside of the individual 13 week contract). We gain loyalty through trust and excellent customer service. As long as you are traveling, we want it to be with us! A positive experience is imperative to that happening, so you can pretty much guarantee you will be taken care of on contract with AMPS.
How much do healthcare travelers earn?
Travelers earn different pay depending on their individual placements, but typically travelers earn more than Permanent Therapists.
Why would I want to work in schools?
Longer contracts with far lower likelihoods of a notice. All those school holidays you looked forward to as a kid? You will get those days off while on contract with us!
Can I bring family or friends with me on a travel assignment?
Yes! We have many travel pairs on assignment all across the nation. Any combo will work, but trust your recruiter’s suggestions on location. You may have to be flexible with location and setting in order to travel with a friend/partner/spouse/etc.
