My search for Travel Physical Therapy Jobs took me to the right place

Dennis holds a Masters of Science in Physical Therapy and an MBA in Healthcare Administration. A native New Yorker, Dennis had a ten-year physical therapy career in Manhattan. He has worked in pediatric and cardiac rehab, in-patient and out-patient settings, and has experienced physical therapy jobs in a variety of bustling urban facilities.

"The fast pace of practicing physical therapy in New York was exciting, but Iwas starting to wonder what else was out there. I was also finishing up with my business degree, and thinking about the next stage in my career. At that point I decided on a travel therapist job. My brother and his family live in South Florida, so taking a travel physical therapist job that put me close to family — while trying out a new clinical setting — sounded like a great fit."
