  • Jenny Williams, Occupational Therapist

    Jenny grew up in the small town of Fairfield, Illinois, about 2 hours east of St. Louis. From there, she attended Maryville University where she earned her MOT degree. Maryville is a small liberal arts school in St. Louis and is one of the oldest institutions of higher learning in Missouri. The OT program at Maryville has a unique vision and allows for incoming freshmen to complete an MOT degree in 5 years rather than moving into the program after gaining an undergraduate degree. After spending 4 years working in rural Missouri, Jenny decided it was time to hit the road and see the country. With her trusty dog “Thor the Wonder Weim”, Jenny made a vow to see as many places as she could in 2 years. Her preferred setting is Home Health and she considers herself a “west coast” personality. Jenny enjoys hiking and exploring – activities that match up well with her travel therapy triumphs. Jenny looks forward to bringing her traveling savvy and clinical support to our burgeoning new grads.

  • Mallory Apel, Occupational Therapist

    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.

  • Aliza Krug, Occupational Therapist

    Aliza Krug is from Ellicott City, Maryland, which is close to Baltimore and boasts a historic downtown popular for its antique shopping. Aliza spent her graduate and undergraduate years in neighboring West Virginia as a mountaineer at WVU. An undergraduate degree in Human Performance and Health led to her Masters Degree in Occupational Therapy in 2012. Although hesitant to travel as a new grad, Aliza quickly became intoxicated on meeting new people and finding diverse clinical experiences to sharpen her skill set. Aliza has had highly productive assignments in MD, SC, and CA and presently is back in her home state of Maryland working in Baltimore. An avid hiker, biker, and water enthusiast, Aliza also finds time to sneak in the occasional concert. Aliza feels her experiences as a new grad traveler have been filled with rich stories, amazing co-workers, and distinctive therapy lessons. She is eager to share those experiences, as well as provide informed support for our incoming new grad therapists. She also enjoys working with her “awesome” recruiter: Amy Barnes. According to Aliza, “travel therapy gives you the chance to travel with friends or to friends, something a permanent job can’t offer.”

When traveling Ly is fortunate to have a trusty companion in the form of a six year old Cockapoo named Harlow. Ly looks forward to providing savvy clinical insight and steady support for our new graduates.

  • Leanne Kieras, Occupational Therapist

    Originally from Western MA, Leanne has hit the road since graduation, working in NC, WA, and CO. After a short stint in SNFs, Leanne realized peds is the only way to go for her bubbly personality. Working in school systems, Leanne embraces the benefits of working in a community and forming relationships with her co-workers. Not a day is the same working with special needs, and Leanne loves the creativity involved in meeting the needs of every unique student. Leanne loves traveling to new areas for the whole school year so she can experience the beauty of all seasons nature has to offer.
