A little reflection time.
I was so hesitant about accepting this travel job in Reno. I was nervous about working Fridays-Mondays, the 30 hour guarantee, a longer than typical contract, and most of all I was nervous about working in this particular setting (SNFs....I’ve been avoiding them for a reason).
To be totally honest, this job can be really hard and really stressful...more often than not as of late. But, so many great opportunities have come from taking the job. I started an awesome business while waiting for my NV license, I’ve made truly amazing friends out here, and I’m working towards my level 1 Alpine ski instructor certification with the goal of teaching adaptive skiing to people with disabilities!
6 months ago, I could never have predicted any of this. I’m so fortunate that I have the ability to modify my career path as I like to reflect my new goals. And I’m so grateful for the incredible new friends that I’m making along the way. Loving this life as a travel OT! The freedom and opportunity that comes with the lifestyle is pretty wonderful 😊
