Congratulations to our featured traveler Aimee Cardenas. Our featured traveler Aimee Cardenas is a travel therapist and is our featured traveler of the month for August 2016. Aimee is currently on her third assignment with Host Healthcare. She has been employed with the VNA of California (Home Health). We want to acknowledge her dedication to us and show how she is a prime example of a successful traveler. She is adaptive to assignments and is a pleasure to work with. We asked her recruiter to write a few words as to why he nominated her for our August Traveler of the Month…
From her recruiter, Gerald:
“I nominated Aimee for traveler of the month because of how inspiring she is. She is a modern day “Super Woman.” Aimee carries a full caseload of 40 hours, travels all throughout southern California, and does it all while traveling with her spouse and 3 small children!! Aimee is such a kind spirit and I look forward to my weekly calls with her. She breaks many myths that are out there when it comes to travel therapy. You don’t have to be single, have grown children, or at the beginning/end of you career to make traveling work. Obstacles to her just don’t exist and I’m reminded of that every time I think about everything she accomplishes in her day.”
Below are a few fun questions we asked Aimee about herself and her experiences:
Q: If you could have one super power what would it be and why?
A: Never-ending energy so I can do more things/activities! Especially with my family after a long day’s work.
Q: What has been your favorite experience since you have been traveling?
A: Meet a lot of people, work in various settings and learn different approaches to PT treatment/intervention.
Q: What has been one of your favorite places you have visited while on assignment?
A: I enjoyed hiking in the San Jacinto mountains (close to Palm Springs, CA). And a mine tour and gold panning in Julian, CA.
Q: What made you want to try travel therapy?
A: Lots of new changes and challenges :).
Q: What was one thing you were scared of before your first assignment and how did you combat that?
A: The new co-workers that I will be working with, staying true to myself, no pretensions of who I am and what I can do helped me combat that fear.
Q: What is your guilty pleasure after a long day at work?
A: A good sushi dinner!
Q: What is one word that sums up your recruiter, Gerald?
