Each month, our International Employee Supervisor Team selects one or two spectacular A-players on assignment to showcase their journey.

He has been working in his field for 13 years and with PassportUSA for over 2 years.Why did you decide to become a physical therapist? "Helping people is my passion and I thought what better way to do it by providing care to patients to help them regain their functional independence again."

"Here, I have more opportunities to further my career and secure a better future for me and my family."

Before coming to the U.S., where did you practice your profession? "I worked as a physical therapy assistant professor in the university I graduated from. I also worked as a part-time personal trainer before coming here to the U.S."Why did you want to come to the U.S.? "I came here to live the American Dream. Here, I have more opportunities to further my career and secure a better future for me and my family."How did you first hear of PassportUSA?�"One of my friends who already signed a contract with Health Carousel referred me to PassportUSA. I also heard about them at conferences that I attended."How is your experience working with your PassportUSA International Employee Supervisor so far? "My IES Angela keeps me updated and provides prompt responses to my questions. She also ensures that I have the support that I need in order to become successful in my career as a physical therapist."Would you recommend PassportUSA to other people and why?�"Yes, I recommend PassportUSA because I like the way they go through the process to ensure that the right way to get to the U.S. is done. The process was worth the wait."How does working in the U.S. differ from your healthcare career abroad? "I was working as a physical therapy professor before I came here to the U.S. Essentially, the job description is different but not totally different because you still get to teach, and now I teach to patients and not to students."How have you grown professionally? "Being a home health physical therapist allows me to enhance my clinical skills and look at patients holistically in order to help them achieve their goals."How has your life and your family's life changed for the better? "Life has been much better since I got to work here in the U.S. I am able to help and provide for my family and help them financially for their needs. It also helped me to become a better physical therapist by exposing myself to a new working environment which is home healthcare."
