I’m Dr. Jared Casazza, and I am a traveling physical therapist. I graduated with my Doctor of Physical Therapy degree in 2015 and am currently traveling for work within the U.S. in a fifth wheel camper with my girlfriend and fellow travel PT, Whitney.

Although physical therapy is how I make a living and one of my main passions, I have several other interests that I pursue in my free time. These include: financial independence, personal finance, bodybuilding/powerlifting, nutrition, supplementation, credit card rewards, travel hacking, investing, hiking, and real estate. I have an insatiable thirst for knowledge, and I hope that this blog can be a place that I can share some of what I have learned to this point.

Whitney and I will also be sharing information on our personal experiences as traveling physical therapists, the ins and outs of working as a traveling healthcare professional, and our traveling adventures both throughout the United States and internationally!

Thank you for reading and I hope you enjoy! Feedback, criticism and discussion are always appreciated.

  1. hello! I am applying to grad school soon and I am quite confused with my life….I have always been set on applying to PT/OT school but the debt to income ratio obviously isnt very nice, they have a clinical nurse leader program in my area (16 month masters program where you can become an RN) and do you think i should just do that instead? ..I somewhat believe OT/PT seem more enjoyable than nursing and a little less stressful..but idk it seems doing the master in nursing route is better from a financial standpoint (20K for whole program) … so confused 😦 help

    1. Hey, Jayna! That’s a very tough question. I would agree that the debt to income ratio isn’t as good for PT and OT school as it is for other healthcare professions. From a purely financial standpoint, nursing school is hard to beat since it’s so much cheaper and will be a lot less time in school. With that being said, I would much rather be a PT than an OT or a nurse. Physical therapy is a great profession and very fulfilling. Also if you’re willing to take travel assignments as a therapist you can met the debt much more manageable due to the higher income. I would recommend that you shadow PTs, OTs, and nurses to see how you like each job and make your decision based on what you think you would enjoy the most. Finances are important but enjoying your job and being happy in your life is more important.
