Nice to Meet You!

I love helping people grow both professionally and personally. I am extremely goal focused and will do my best to help all my therapists get to where they want to be whether they are day one new grads or 20 year veterans. I believe the biggest key to success is having a strong team behind you working together.

Fun Fact

I am an avid traveler and cook. On each of my trips I collect recipes to use in my kitchen at home. On weekends where we can’t travel farther my wife, daughter and I explore Colorado and can usually be found out in the mountains in one of the many parks.

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.

What happens after my assignment is complete?

Before your assignment is over, your recruiter will begin discussing available options with you. If an extension is offered, you may choose to accept that as well. If you want to take a vacation, your recruiter will help you plan your assignments accordingly so you have plenty of freedom and flexibility.

What is per diem?

Per diem is a daily allowance to cover the various costs when traveling.

What mentorship is available for new graduates?

New graduates have access to the Advanced mentorship program, which includes special mentors for SLP, OT and PT. In addition, we also offer mentors with experience directly related to Advanced.

How much do healthcare travelers earn?

Travelers earn different pay depending on their individual placements, but typically travelers earn more than Permanent Therapists.

What licenses do I need to have to work in a school?

This depends on the state and the district. Some schools simply need for you to have a state board license. Others will require a special teaching certificate. Don’t worry if the certificate takes a long time to be conferred as many schools/states will allow you to work with a pending teaching certificate! Your recruiter and QA specialist will serve as your guides when it comes to navigating licensure questions. We have the answers!
