Speech Therapist ($20,000 sign-on bonus)

Nogales, AZ
Located 60 miles south of Tucson, Nogales  is a small, friendly border community with 20,000 residents in Santa Cruz County, Arizona.  Nogales borders the city of Nogales, Sonora, Mexico, and is Arizona's largest international border community. The southern terminus of Interstate 19 is located in Nogales at the U.S.-Mexico border; the highway continues south into Mexico as Mexico Federal Highway 15.  The city boasts beautiful weather year round, thanks to a a semi-arid steppe climate, (which is less hot and more rainy than a typical arid climate classification such as Phoenix). Nogales is a place where American Indian, Hispanic, and Anglo cultures add flavor and history to a city that maintains its small town charm and Old West ranching traditions. It’s one of the most unique cities in North America, where cultural, linguistic, social, and familial ties have crossed international borders for generations.
