Living In Wisconsin
For most people the Badger State is most well known for cheese, football and the great lakes (Lake Superior & Lake Michigan). For those lucky enough to work and live in Wisconsin it’s so much more. While it’s true that they have some of the best dairy and cheese in the world they’re also blessed with prestigious universities, botanical gardens & beautiful parks, historic landmarks & architecture, museums, zoos, crazy cool concert venues and such roadside attractions as the world’s largest ball of twine. Wisconsin is most populated in the southeast part of the state where the state’s largest city, Milwaukee, is located. This is the region where most of the occupational therapist jobs will be located. Other larger cities such as Madison, Green Bay, Appleton, Kenosha, and Racine are also going to have more facilities in need of OTs. That being said, facilities in rural areas often have a greater need for travel therapists. This is where new grad occupational therapists have an opportunity to get valuable experience. Wisconsin has a lower cost of living than average which means you’ll pocket more of your take home than you would in other states.

I was referred to Advanced by another traveler in my building that worked for them. She kept telling me that they really do customize packages and pay top rates so I called them and that is exactly what they did.Nancy P.
