Travel Therapy In The Deep SouthDecember 2nd, 2016 3 Min read Blog
Ty Ashley began his first travel assignment on July 25, 2016. Six months into this new adventure he is now on to his second assignment and is enjoying getting to know people in new parts of the country. His first assignment was as a home health therapist in Sylacauga and Pell City, Alabama. His second assignment brought him to Cleveland, MS and then Ruleville, MS. “I think we should take joy in meeting new people and having an opportunity to have a positive impact on their lives,” says Ty. “We should take the time to enjoy the beauty we can find in the different parts of the country we may find ourselves. Thus far I have got to see beautiful lakes and mountains and hills of Alabama and beautiful sunrises and sunsets of the Mississippi delta.” Several years ago he and his wife began contemplating travel PT, and he was drawn to CompHealth due to its company history, how it has grown and its rating nationally as an excellent company to work with. In his spare time he enjoys playing golf and sight-seeing in the areas near his assignments. He and his wife are looking forward to new assignments, meeting new people and seeing new places in different parts of the country as a perk of this type of work. Their first grandchild will be arriving soon and he foresees much of his spare time will be spent visiting the new addition to the family. Mississippi and Alabama both offer great therapy assignments but also off many things to do and see when away from work. Here are a handful of sites to see in each state: Sing the Blues – Keeping to the music theme, visit the Delta Blues Museum to explore the history and heritage of the blues. Exhibits change often and offer a glimpse behind the scenes of many of blues greats including Muddy Waters, John Lee Hooker and BB King. It is located in Clarksdale, MS.
