If recruiting was an Olympic event Katie would take Gold. She is kind, professional, genuine, and extremely efficient. I recommend you keep her on staff with frequent raises and a nice window view.
After working with Katie for the past 3 years I can’t say enough good things about her. She is one of the most invested and dedicated people I have ever known and will work as hard if not harder than you to get you everything you are looking for in a traveling position. She is super personable always checking in to make sure that everything in life is going well and if there is anything she can do to make it better. It truly was more like having a good friend that is also exceptional at their job working with you. If I ever decide to take another travel position their is no doubt that I would only ever use Katie.
Katie adds a personal touch to our working relationship that I have not found elsewhere. From the start, Katie took the time to get to know me as a therapist and an individual. Since then, she checks in frequently to offer genuine words of encouragement and update me on job opportunities. Whenever I reach out with questions she is timely and thorough in her response.
Katie has been wonderful throughout by whole transition to travel therapy. She communicates really well and definitely gave me the information I needed to get started and succeed as a travel therapist :) I’d recommend her to anyone!
Over the past 3 years, I have had the pleasure to work with Katie as my recruiter for various contract therapy jobs. She is very personable, professional and dependable. I have worked with other recruiters in the past, but none compare to Katie. She makes it a point to communicate on a regular basis making sure the assignment and job needs are being fulfilled. I definitely recommend Katie as a recruiter to anyone interested in a traveling position!

Katie is truly amazing! She is beyond kind, professional, and knowledgeable! I’ve never worked with a recruiter who is better than she is with communication. Fast and effective! I also love that she goes the extra mile to know about myself and husband personally, including asking about our house we are building. I have nothing negative to say and would recommend her to everyone!!! Grateful for her help!
It'll be a year in October that Katie and I have been working together through this traveling journey and I have zero regrets. She has been punctual on answering any questions or concerns during every contract and I could not be more thankful that our paths crossed. I look forward to our weekly chats on Fridays. Even though its part of her job, she also has a way of making you feel like she is genuinely interested in your work week and your life in general. I cannot say enough about how wonderful she is!
I would absolutely recommend Katie to anyone looking for an amazing recruiter who is going to keep your best interest in mind. I continue to look forward to more placements with her!
Katie was awesome throughout the entire process! First assignment as a PTA and she walked me through the steps and made sure everything was taken care. Couldn't have asked for a better first travel experience!
During our short working relationship, Katie has shown total professionalism. She is friendly, caring and personable. Katie is incredibly time efficient and has been available whenever I needed help or needed any questions answered. I had a unique situation during my last assignment which created some confusion, however in the midst of all that, she made sure that I was protected and taken care of. I truly appreciated that. I highly recommend Katie as a recruiter and even as a friend! Thank you for all you do Katie 😊.
Katie is a wonderful recruiter- she is dependable, helpful, and friendly. Katie eased me into the process of travel therapy and checked in weekly and as needed to ensure I had a smooth experience as I transitioned into a new chapter of my career. Even though I moved onto a full time position, Katie still checks in with me regularly and I continue to refer anyone remotely interested in traveling to Katie. Thanks for everything you’ve done to further my career, Katie, I’m forever grateful.
I have had the pleasure to work with Katie for the last 8 months through Jackson therapy and would highly recommend her. She has gone above and beyond in her role as a recruiter and her passion for her work shows through everyday. She is always energetic, positive, and upbeat with every phone call, text, or email, but is also able to be realistic and direct when it comes down to negotiating contract and locations of placements. She is very knowledgable regarding all the travel therapy policies and is always able to thoroughly answer all my questions. I always feel that Katie is honest and follows through with every aspect of recruiting in a efficient and organized way. I can always count on Katie to put my interests, needs, and concerns first to find the best possible placement that meets my requests. Katie is a great listener and clear communicator; she is always easy to get a hold of too. I always enjoy my interactions with Katie, as she has become a friend through this travel journey.
I would highly recommend Katie as she is very talented, passionate, knowledgable, and has a sincere interest in all her clients. She really does set the bar high for recruiters. You will not be disappointed if you work with Katie.

I have been a travel SLP for 6 years and have worked with 3 different travel companies and I can vouch that Katie is a wonderful recruiter! She is always positive and perky with a pleasant attitude. She's responsive, helpful, and caring and really wants to do a good job for you. So when she calls in for her weekly check up, yeah it's part of her duty, but she seems sincere in her inquiry. If you have any questions, she has the answer or, if not, she will find out and is pretty prompt in giving you a response. If you have complaints, she will do her best to resolve them and, in my case, always has. It has been a pleasure having Katie as my recruiter and I highly recommend her.
Katie Handley has been a great recruiter. She has guided me from beginning to end of my traveling career. All questions were answered and there was no need to worry. I wouldn't have been able to do this job without her. If any therapist is interested in traveling I would definitely recommend Katie Handley as a recruiter. She is the best.
I loved working with Katie. She helped me get set up making sure I had all the documentation and information that I needed. She called periodically just to say "Hi" and see how things were going. She was easy to get in touch with if I needed her. She took a personal interest in what turned out to be a challenging position. Katie listened and gave advice. I couldn't have done it without her. I have never worked with a contract agency before, but any other agency in the future will have to step up their game to meet what Jackson Therapy has done. I would highly recommend them for the experienced and non-experienced therapist. While I have a new position now, if I ever need to look again, Jackson Therapy will be my first choice!
Katie is one of the best! As a recent physical therapy graduate I was bombarded with phone calls and emails from recruiters from multiple companies but none took a personal interest in meeting my needs like Katie. So when she found me a placement that was close enough to go home every weekend she called me immediately to send in my resume. I got the job and was able to start just one week later!
After getting me a job in the setting I wanted she continued to check in with me weekly, giving me her personal phone number for any questions or concerns. She cares about her recruits and works hard to find the job that best fits them! Unlike other recruiters who just want to place clients in the jobs that are posted, I honestly felt that Katie took the extra step to ensure my placement was the right one for me.
I have had the privilege of working with Katie for approximately 5 months now and let me tell you from day one Katie has taken a genuine interest in putting my needs and concerns first. She has worked diligently to find the best suited placements for me, all the while keeping in mind my want for a small mileage radius! Katie is always available to answer any questions that I have and she frequently calls or texts me just to see how things are going, which is amazing!
If you want to start with a traveling company, I would suggest Jackson Therapy Partners and that you request Katie Handley because she will go above and beyond to help you as best she can!
I have had the privilege to work with Katie for approximately nine months. From day one Katie has taken a genuine interest in putting my needs and concerns first. I recently spoke with Katie as my assignment is about to end and I expressed to her that Katie Hanley for me is Jackson Therapy Partners. She has worked diligently to find the best suited placements for me, guided me through some difficult choices, has assisted me in applying for licensures in other states and most recently has given me valuable information that helped me negotiate a great starting salary with my new permanent position. Katie has always been available to answer any questions and furthermore she has frequently called me just to see how things are going. Over these several months I must say that I consider Katie a friend first and then a recruiter.
I would highly recommend Katie for your career needs. You can be assured that you are working with the best and someone who is genuinely sincere in seeing you succeed! As far as I am concerned, Katie has set the bar by which all recruiters should strive to attain. If I ever need assistance in my career Katie will be the first person I contact.
I have worked for other travel companies in the past but, what sets Jackson apart from the others, is without a doubt working with Katie. If you have a question or concern she is always there with the answer. She never leaves you hanging and on the rare (very rare) occasion she doesn't answer the phone right away, she calls back within minutes!
Katie is like having your Mom or best friend in your corner...that's how much she looks out for you. If Katie no longer worked for Jackson I would no longer work for Jackson! That's how great she is!!! She knows the ins and outs of the different state licensing boards (which is such a pain sometime) can hook you up with housing, and guide you through the paper work on a timely and very professional manner.
If you are looking for travel opportunities consider Jackson and demand Katie!! She's the best!!!
