Say Hello! to Ingrid Remkus — Therapy Recruiter
Nice to Meet You!I have been a recruiter for the last 14 years, predominantly with a Wall Street focus in New York where I grew up. In 2017 I decided to move to Denver, and I'm thrilled to have found Advanced Therapy. As the Aunt of a severely autistic, non verbal boy, I understand the challenges parents face getting quality therapy for special needs kiddos. Advanced allows me to use my recruiting skills to do exactly that, bring the best of the best therapists to kiddos like my nephew Jack. I have always been a "people person" and in addition to finding awesome opportunities for the therapists I work with, I also make them laugh, discuss just about every topic of personal life, and as a result we always have a good time.
Fun FactI am a 12th generation American, my ancestors settled the Village of Bridgehampton, NY, and when I was born I was named Ingrid, so that I would have a unique name and not be lost in a shuffle of hundreds of local family members.
Frequently Asked Questions
I'm not greedy but part of the reason I travel is the extra money I can make. Will I still qualify for travel stipends while on these longer assignments?
Absolutely. You can work in one spot as a traveler for up to 12 months before you are considered local. During the course of your school year assignment, you qualify for all the travel stipends you would receive while on a shorter assignment.
Do you help with state licensure?
Yes, Advanced helps cover the cost of state licensure with our licensure reimbursement policy.
What other reasons would I want to work in schools?
Remember that favorite teacher you had when you were in grade school. That could be you! The impact you have on these children is truly amazing. At the end of the school year, you will be looking forward to your next school assignment in the next amazing location.
Are all your school jobs in super rural, out of the way areas?
Not at all. We see openings in all geographic areas. Sure, some of them are super rural or in quiet, out of the way towns. But other jobs exist in urban areas as well.
Will I be working in one school building or many?
It depends on the opening. Sometimes a district has enough of a caseload in one building that you will be there for the course of your entire contract. Other districts may need you to float from one building to another. In situations where you need to float during the day, we will try to arrange for you to stay on the clock during the travel time from building to building.
