Pediatric Occupational Therapist
Lauren was born and raised in TN. During her final OT fieldwork rotation she moved to FL. She has experience working with a variety of diagnoses within the school system, outpatient clinics, daycares, Charter schools, PPECs, homes, and within the community. She is passionate about educating families & loves problem-solving. Lauren has never met a stranger and values the relationships she builds with others. When virtual therapy became the only option for some children, Lauren found it necessary and beneficial to include families more in treatment sessions. She understands the value of time as a mom of 2 children.

“I am excited to work with Kinspire where we can offer a different team approach to make children as successful as their families desire for them to be!”
"We had a meeting yesterday and honestly it was really great. She was super nice and patient and explained things and answered questions. I can definitely understand things better and we've started making some changes today. I'm very thankful."
