We are Dr. Jared Casazza and Dr. Whitney Eakin.
We are both Doctors of Physical Therapy, and we’ve been traveling physical therapists since 2015. For the first few years of our traveling careers, we lived and traveled full time in our fifth wheel camper while working as Travel PTs, thus the name of our blog “Fifth Wheel Physical Therapist.”
In 2018, we decided to start taking more time off from work, and start spending more time traveling for fun. From July-December 2018, we took a 5 month trip around the world, to 3 different continents and 11 different countries! Then in 2019, we traveled for 4 months throughout Europe to 14 different countries. We had 5-month trip planned throughout Latin America in 2020, until our plans got rocked by COVID. Since then, we’ve been able to resume traveling internationally and spent several months out of the country traveling in Mexico, Central and South America in both 2021 and 2022. We’ve also now visited all 50 US states via cross-country road trips in 2019, 2020, 2021, and 2022.
Over the next couple of years, we plan to continue our part time work lifestyle, while traveling as much as possible both domestically and internationally. When we’re not working in the clinic, we work online on our FifthWheelPT blog and our online business where we mentor and educate current and aspiring travel therapists, Travel Therapy Mentor. We may settle down into a more permanent location in the future, but for now we are enjoying our traveling life!
In addition to physical therapy and traveling, Whitney has a passion for photography and writing about our adventures. Jared has a passion for finance and enjoys learning and writing on our blog about financial independence, credit card rewards, travel hacking, investing, cryptocurrency, real estate, and various other money making hacks! In addition, you’ll sometimes find random health, nutrition, and philosophical articles pop up on this site!
