Lauren earned her Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology with a minor in Public Health at the University of Georgia. She stayed at UGA to obtain a Master’s degree in Public Health, working in the non-profit sector following graduation to develop and deliver health and wellness programs for children of all abilities. She discovered her passion for pediatrics and decided to pursue a Master’s of Science degree in Occupational Therapy, which she completed at Brenau University.
Lauren is certified by the National Board for Certification in Occupational Therapy and has experience working in early intervention, outpatient pediatrics, orthopedic, and vocational rehabilitation settings serving clients from birth to 21 with a variety of diagnoses.
Lauren believes connection and trust are essential to successful therapeutic outcomes, and focuses on building strong relationships with clients and their families. She enjoys tailoring each session to the client’s interests and ensuring families have simple and fun activities to engage in at home and in the community to promote continued progress outside of scheduled therapy visits.
In her free time, Lauren enjoys spending time with her husband and family, hiking, gardening, attending concerts and sporting events (Go Dawgs)!
