My next PT clinical rotation is in Lexington, KY at Baptist Health Lexington from May 4 - June 26. I am looking for a temporary place to live. Please contact me at email@example.com if you have any suggestions or could help me. I am more than willing to pay rent and/or help with grocery money. I enjoyed my previous rotation at a skilled nursing facility and learning more about home health physical therapy. During Thanksgiving break, my boyfriend and I explored Asheville School's beautiful campus. It's always a pleasure to be back in Asheville."
