Lauren first began her journey with physiotherapy as a small child recovering from surgery and has been passionate about the benefits of physiotherapy since.
She graduated from Brigham Young University with a Bachelor's in Exercise Science and then went on to graduate from the University of Queensland, in Brisbane Australia, with her Masters in Physiotherapy. Since then she has continued her education with training in vestibular rehabilitation, concussion assessment and management, yoga for pain care, clinical pilates for rehabilitation as well as acupuncture. She focuses on evidence-based practiced and functional treatment that not only works with you to improve your health but to also keep you engaged in your own treatment. She is passionate about wellness and wellbeing and how those impact our physical being.
In her personal time, Lauren has a passion for running, boxing and practicing yoga as well as staying active. When she is not working she is most often found reading or listening to music with her two children.
