malloryAs we head into the summer months, we anticipate a surge of new graduates joining Advanced Medical for a diverse travel experience. This makes it critical for us to continue to add high quality mentors that understand what it takes to be a new grad traveler. Our newest Occupational Therapy Mentor passes all of these tests with aplomb. We give a warm welcome to Mallory Apel, who looks to impart her clinical seasoning and travel tips with a generous amount of cheer. She joins our growing roster of exceptional therapists bringing wisdom and support to our talented new grads.


Mallory brings steady leadership and unbridled enthusiasm to her mentoring role. Growing up in Sylvania, a town in Northern Ohio that straddles the Michigan border, Mallory would stay in the Midwest for College. She earned both her undergraduate and MOT at Eastern Michigan University, a mid-sized university located in Ypsilanti. The Eastern Michigan Occupational Therapy program has a rich history (started in 1941) and believes in producing graduates with a strong sense of community. The department prioritizes the use of theory and research in clinical practice. Mallory jumped into travel therapy to meet new people and see new places. She was also attracted to the diversity of practice and felt comfortable with Advanced Medical due to the tremendous support offered new grads. An intense road tripper, Mallory loves getting outside to hike, snowboard, or soak up any activity around a lake. Shunning Ohio for the Michigan sports scene, Mallory loves the Detroit Red Wings and Tigers. Her passionate embrace of the SNF and Home Health settings has resulted in excellent evaluations. Mallory is excited to share her travel insight and clinical know-how with new Advanced Medical travelers.

Until next time…
