ABOUT ME
I grew up in a small town in Wisconsin, but have always had family ties in Iowa. I currently live in Iowa City. In my downtime I enjoy exploring this state, reading, working with textiles (weaving, knitting, sewing), and spending time outdoors.

WHY SPEECH THERAPY
I often say that my path to speech therapy was a series of happy accidents. I had not heard of the field when I was young, but a combination of sign language, movies about monkeys, and a little boy in Lesotho, Africa led me to become a speech therapist. I believe that the ability to communicate plays a vital role in everyone's life, and I am thrilled to be able to help my patients enhance or restore that ability.

WHY RMC
I am excited for the opportunity to work for RMC because it offers a wide variety of opportunities for me as a speech therapist, from inpatient, to outpatient,to home health. Additionally, being from a small town, I appreciate the community-oriented values of RMC, and I can't wait to become part of that community!

Lauren joined our staff in 2019.
