This is a glimpse into the life of a full time Locums Physician Assistant. I hope that there are tricks and tips in here that help you find a better work balance, decrease your burn out, dial your travel gear, eat healthy on the go, find time for more adventure and have more JOY in your life.

I greatly value the exchange of ideas and I hope others will share their thoughts and experiences as well. Regardless of your industry, there is a growing number of us that I call a “Professional Gypsy”. We travel extensively for work, often live out of a suitcase and as a result we have a unique skillset that allows us to thrive.

Personally, I have had the privilege of an amazing family whom are willing to store my personal items, allowing to come and go. I often travel to visit friends around the United States and the world between my contracts. This lifestyle is awesome, but it is not without its challenges. It can be hard being separated from loved ones and our communities.

I hope this becomes a forum for all who live this unique lifestyle…. to grow, connect and be better together; or for those thinking about entering this world.
