Where could you go instead?

Okay, so you’re about to embark on a traveling rehab/therapy career and you’ve got the whole country to choose from… Where’s your first pick? Well, let’s start with this question first. What are some activities you like to participate in? Are you an outdoors type of person who likes to camp, hike and explore the unknown? Or maybe you’re more of a city slicker and like what a major metropolis has to offer, like shopping, nightlife and people, lots of people. What ever it is you like to do, just remember there’s always more than just one place that has everything you’re looking for, not just the most popular locations.

Instead of picking the most obvious destination to satisfy your interests needs, why not pick somewhere else? Say you like to ski, you need mountains, where are there mountains? Colorado? Yes and Utah and Vermont, New York, Wyoming, California, New Mexico and Pennsylvania. Yes, all those states offer skiing and probably better skiing than the place you were thinking of. Just because you associate an activity with a certain city or state, does not mean there is nothing else like it elsewhere. In fact, you’re probably better off going with the “unbeaten path” than the well traveled one. You may just discover a hidden treasure that you would have never found had you taken the assignment that everyone and their mother picked too. Perhaps you stumble upon a beach with no one else in sight for miles, or a fishing hole that seems to have an endless supply of trophy catches… The chances are limitless.

So when it comes time to pick a place for your next traveling therapy or traveling rehab job do a little more research. Try a google search on the “Best Places to (insert your desired activity)” and you’ll be sure to find an alternative to your first, second and third choices. Remember, to be a good traveler you have to be a little open minded. There could be a time when there won’t be a position available in the city of your choice and you have to be ready to accept an alternate route. You never know, you just may not want to leave – it’s that good.

“Uncertainty and expectation are the joys of life. Security is an insipid thing, through the overtaking and possessing of a wish discovers the folly of the chase.” – William Congreve

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, 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!
