Guidance, Community, and Inspiration

"What a relief to finally find a thorough, creative and extremely informative resource for non-clinical jobs for us rehab professionals! Meredith has gone above and beyond."

"Meredith was a great help and got me thinking about options. I just got a job where I still have patient interaction, but with higher pay and less stress!"

Jennifer C.

Inpatient Care Coordinator

"When we started talking about a month ago I felt like I had no clarity, vision, or hope. Because of Meredith's help, I feel like things have done a complete 180."

One-on-One Career Coaching

My customized career coaching program is designed for physical, occupational, and speech therapy professionals who want to try something new, but aren’t sure where to start. I will guide you from identifying your passions and inherent strengths, to highlighting your experience and achievements. Then, we hone in on the best paths for you, giving you the tools you need to pursue those roles with confidence.

Original & Guest Content

The heart of The Non-Clinical PT is the content. I feature PT/As, OT/As, and SLP/As who have successfully transitioned out of patient care, and I write about non-traditional roles for therapists, as well as how to land those roles. I also proudly feature guest posts from members, sharing what they’ve learned on their inspiring non-clinical journeys. There's something for everyone. 🙂

About The Non-Clinical PT

I set a goal to treat clinically for five years before leaving patient care to become a copywriter, and that’s exactly what I did—but it certainly wasn’t easy. Along the way, I co-founded NewGradPhysicalTherapy and later became Head of Content at CovalentCareers. During that time, I was approached by many other physical and occupational therapists (and assistants) who were feeling burned out in traditional patient care, and they felt as lost as I had once felt.

In 2017, I created The Non-Clinical PT as a small resource for therapy professionals seeking change, and the response was astounding. Since then, I've helped countless PT, OT, and SLP professionals find the confidence and inspiration to pursue—and land—non-clinical roles.

I am passionate about fighting the physical therapy burnout crisis in our profession, and I believe that creating non-clinical options in our profession will enable therapy professionals to find more fulfillment in their careers… and us with much-needed exposure in mainstream culture.
