Meet the Mentors
Who are the Travel Therapy Mentors?
Whitney Eakin and Jared Casazza are a US-based traveling physical therapist couple who have maximized their careers as Travel PTs to achieve financial independence and travel the world! Over their years as travel therapists, they’ve mentored and educated thousands of clinicians & students to help them pursue their own travel healthcare careers, achieve financial freedom, and create lifestyles of their dreams!
Whitney and Jared’s many adventures since beginning their travel journey as new grad PTs in 2015 have included: traveling to 49 of the US states (only Alaska left!), living the full time RV life for several years in their fifth wheel camper, visiting over half of the US National Parks, and exploring over 30 countries internationally!
Both Jared and Whitney are originally from Roanoke, Virginia. Jared received both his undergraduate degree in Exercise Science and his Doctor of Physical Therapy degree from Radford University in Virginia. Whitney studied Athletic Training at the College of Charleston in Charleston, South Carolina and became a Certified Athletic Trainer, prior to receiving her Doctor of Physical Therapy degree at Old Dominion University in Norfolk, Virginia. Since graduation, the pair has provided physical therapy services in 4 different states, including Hawaii!
Jared has a passion for personal finance and financial independence. He is well versed in credit card rewards and travel hacking, which has allowed him and Whitney to be able to take many amazing trips while spending very little money! Whitney is a photo fanatic and enjoys documenting all of her and Jared’s travels through photography, as well as blogging. Together the pair enjoy weightlifting, hiking, and chasing sunsets.
Their traveling physical therapy careers have allowed Jared and Whitney to gain financial independence and have a more flexible lifestyle. They now both work less than half the year as physical therapists, while spending their time mentoring and educating other therapists via Travel Therapy Mentor, and traveling all over the world for fun.
