As you all know, this blog is fairly new and we’re discovering new and important, relevant sites for you therapists and rehab specialists out there… And today is no different. This afternoon I stumbled across a site called, YourTherapySource.com which is dedicated to Pediatric Occupational and Physical Therapists. One of their latest posts titled, “5 Ice Breakers for Pediatric Therapy” has some great methods to use on your next traveling therapy assignment. Getting to know your peers and other colleagues is a much different task than that of getting to know the children you’ll be rehabilitating. It’s obvious you have a passion for care and therapy for children and I’m sure you already know the difficulties that come with dealing with kids… So maybe those helpful hints can make your transistion into your new assignment as a traveling pediatric physical therapist a little easier.
About the Author
Born in Kentucky, raised in Germany, landed in Nebraska and still here.
I’ve been involved with Marketing and Advertising for the better part of a decade. It all began with an internship at an ad agency in Omaha, followed by a 9 year stint as a graphic artist at the lone major newspaper in Omaha. A friend of mine told me about an opening at her company and said that it was the best gig she’s ever had. So I decided to spread my proverbial wings and see what I could do for them and vice versa. Obviously, I landed the job at Medical Solutions, a travel physical therapy company
and am now a Marketing Specialist who writes about travel physical therapy
. This by far has been a major blessing to my life, I love the work I get to do just as much as I love the people who make up this fabulous company. I can see myself here for a long time, as long as they’ll have me.
Now that we’ve got the career timeline out of the way. Let me tell you a little about who I am. I am oh so passionate about the game of futbol! I’ve been playing soccer since the age of 8 and am still playing today. If I couldn’t at least kick the ball around, I don’t know what I would do with myself. I fear getting old. I also have a strong love for the arts. Music, Visual arts, Film, Design; pretty much anything and everything arty. I’m happy go lucky and am always looking to have a good time. Just ask my manager!
