Lauren comes to us from the beaches of Newcastle. She studied Physiotherapy at the University of Newcastle and has since completed the Master of Sports Physiotherapy post graduate degree La Trobe University. Lauren has a special interest in the treatment of shoulder and sports injuries which stems from her love of all things sport and fitness related. Lauren has competed as a representative in softball at an international level and in netball at the state level as well as local hockey, basketball and cycling. As a physiotherapist Lauren has held positions with the Sydney Blue Sox, Newcastle Jets, NSW softball, NSW rugby league, the Hunter Academy of Sport and representative netball teams. While Lauren enjoys treating injuries, she also has a passion for preventative injury management and performance enhancement. This passion has led Lauren to lecture on this subject and to formulate Injury Prevention Programs for over 600 Hunter athletes. In Lauren’s spare time she looks after her two gorgeous dogs and enjoys baking lots of yummy treats for the rest of the SquareOne team.
