Lauren graduated with her bachelor’s degree from Indiana University – Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI) in 2004. She then pursued her doctorate degree in physical therapy from Rockhurst University in Kansas City, MO, graduating in 2007.
Over the last 12 years, she has worked in multiple settings including inpatient acute care, short- and long-term rehab care and has also owned her own outpatient clinic in Franklin, TN. Her experiences working at MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, TX, seeing women fighting breast cancer, combined with the other multiple settings gave her a broad range of experiences and outlooks on the different aspects of rehab.
These experiences combined with her personal experience going through a breast surgery helped her develop the components of The Chrysalis Method, which address the overall wellbeing of patients during their recovery period.
