Taking Travel Therapy to the Next Level.

Most of the time the point of my articles and posts on Rehab and Therapy Jobs.com are to help educate and provide insights into the world of travel therapy and rehab jobs. But today we are going to take a different approach and direct you to others in the field of therapy and their blogs. While catching up on some OT news via Alltop.com I ran across a story that immediately struck my fancy. It is titled, “From Creighton to Cairo” and what drew me to the story was that Creighton is here in Omaha where we’re based. I’m partial to the local connection. Anyways, it turns out the writer is going to school at Creighton finishing her Doctor of Occupational Therapy degree and I thought I’d share with you her blog. You can read all about it here at Occupational Therapy in Egypt. She’s taken travel therapy to the next level for sure, though it’s not an actual assignment through an agency. She’s on clinical rotation down there and will be coming back in December to graduate. This is what she says as to why she chose Egypt of all places… Why Egypt? Many of you readers know better than I that Egypt needs OT(s)! As OT continues to advance in countries around the world, so also should the profession be developed in Egypt- which I chose for the reality that Egypt occupies only a handful of registered OT(s) and does not currently offer an accredited OT education. To be able to progress in areas of occupation, professional practice and leadership, Egypt must also keep pace by providing both the occasion for learning opportunities and OT employment. Permeating the boundaries to allow access for both practicing therapists and students can create a future of global resources to protect our profession while also addressing the need for therapy in this country.” Check it and out and it just may inspire you to reach out further than you thought you could.

Now in regards to to travel therapy and rehab jobs, it’s nice to find someone who is enjoying the benefits that come along with it all. Over at The Ramblings of a Traveling Speech Therapist it’s described as a blog that details the all the travels this therapist has done, and she does do a good job. It’s like you’re right there with her. She’s currently on contract in the Bay Area and has been documenting a lot of her escapades outside of work. You’re a therapist already, so you know what that’s like, but what you don’t know are all the different and exciting places to visit and the many, many people you will befriend along the way. I wish I could find more people out there who would do this… It’s always a fun read to see what their last adventures were like and you can live vicariously through them.

So these are two that I know you might find interesting. If you know more, please send them my way. I’m sure our readers would love to have as many perspectives on the industry they love. Until next time, have a Happy Halloween!

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!
