Meet Lauren

At the University of Iowa. I obtained a B. S. in Therapeutic Recreation on a Pre-Occupational Therapy track. This required volunteering and observing geriatric patients. I volunteered at Oaknoll Retirement Residence during my junior and senior year. I also obtained experience with the geriatric population during my internship at Schwab Rehabilitation Hospital. My responsibilities in both roles included evaluating patients/residents leisure needs, developing goals, implementing a plan, and evaluating their progress. I also worked alongside Certified Recreational Specialist, Occupational Therapists, Speech Language Pathologists, Physical Therapists, nurses and doctors to approach varying diagnoses of elderly population. These experiences confirmed my passion for working with the geriatric population that I plan to pursue after obtaining my Masters in Occupational Therapy.
