Lauren completed her undergraduate degree in kindergarten and elementary education at McGill university, which first sparked her passion for working with children. She loved implementing her creativity into her classroom and learning from her students. Her interest in learning more about how she could support different communication styles in her classroom led to her pursuing a new career.
Lauren went on to complete her Master’s degree in Speech-Language Pathology with a minor in Audiology at McGill University in Montreal. While pursuing her degree, she gained clinic experience working with children and teens with speech and language disorders. Her primary interests include early language stimulation, speech sound disorders, and building social communication skills. She enjoys including movement, singing, and art into her sessions.
Lauren’s philosophy centers around following the child’s lead and integrating their interests into her treatment sessions. She believes that parent coaching is integral to progress and values parent participation throughout the therapy journey. Lauren’s ultimate goal is to ensure that both the children and parents she works with leave each session feeling heard and supported.
When she is not working as a Speech-Language Pathologist, Lauren loves to cook food from different parts of the world, spend time with her family, and travel. She also loves music and theater, which translates into her work with children.
