Jared's Bio:

"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!"
