We like to ask each featured traveler to tell us what makes them so special and what sparked their decision to travel with Triage. Read on to learn more about Darla:
How long have you been traveling?
I have been a traveling PT for a total of 8 years!
What made you decide to travel?
I wanted to travel for the flexibility in my schedule and to see different cities in the US. When I complete an assignment, I like having the option to take time off to visit my family, travel somewhere new, or take a staycation. Another big reason I started to travel is that I wanted to become stronger in my field of practice. Traveling helps me gain experience in multiple different therapy settings, which has allowed me to grow into a better physical therapist.
Where do you think you’ll travel next?
I have no idea! I am loving Northern Virginia at the moment and plan to stay for one more assignment.
Triage offers great benefits and has amazing recruiters that have placed me in the locations I wanted to be in. (On a side note, I followed my recruiter Bill Halloran, from his previous job over to his position with Triage)
What is one thing still on your bucket list?
I want a dog! Yes, having a fluffy fur ball is on my bucket list. I haven’t killed the plants on my patio this summer, so I think I am ready to take on a pet.
What’s your go-to karoke song?
Girls Just Wanna Have Fun….Cyndi Lauper
what is one food you can never give up?
CHOCOLATE…whether it’s in my coffee creamer or a tablespoon of chocolate chips, I have to eat it every day.
What was your favorite cartoon growing up?
She-Ra: Princess of Power
What’s the most spontaneous thing you’ve ever done?
I put my belongings in storage, packed 2 suitcases and bought a one way ticket to Hawaii. I was lucky enough to have a friend stay with me for a couple of weeks. Then I found a full-time job (travel jobs are so hard to get here!) and an apartment and lived there fore more than 3 years!
