Lauren Rendak, Occupational Therapist

Lauren holds a bachelor’s degree in health and human physiology from the University of Iowa and a master’s degree in occupational therapy from Lewis University.

Lauren was drawn to pursue a career in OT by the nature of how the profession ties together problem-solving, creativity and meaningful experiences all in one. She is driven by knowing that the work she does helps children learn skills that help them feel successful at home, at school, and with friends. She finds so much meaning in joining families and children in celebrating gains, both large and small.

Lauren has experience in a variety of pediatric settings including outpatient clinics, schools, and hospitals. She also holds experience in aquatic and feeding therapies.  Lauren aims to continue professional growth with special focus on feeding, early intervention, childhood mental health and reflex integration.
