|Lauren is a Research Speech Pathologist who re-joined National Acoustic Laboratories in October 2021. A former zoologist, Lauren decided that she missed working with people and began working as a ranger, tour guide, science communicator and circus teacher. After enjoying working in a more one-to-one ratio with children at the circus, a career change beckoned, and she undertook a master in speech pathology. Now a speech pathologist for over 5 years, Lauren has worked in private practice and at both a specialist school and a special developmental school. She has also worked as a Key Worker at NextSense, supporting children with hearing loss and their families. In her spare-time she is part of a circus community. Lauren is passionate about early intervention, supporting children with unilateral hearing loss, and investigating outcomes for adolescents with hearing loss.|
Lauren studied her Bachelor of Science (Honours) at The University of Melbourne, with a major in Zoology. Lauren later completed her Master of Speech Pathology also at The University of Melbourne.
