Lauren is currently a student at Douglas College working towards getting her degree in Therapeutic Recreation (TR). For the past five years she’s worked as a medical laboratory technologist until recently discovering her true passion in TR. She believes strongly in supporting people living with mental illness and wants to work towards decreasing the stigma surrounding it. Where exactly in therapeutic recreation she will end up is still a mystery as she is just starting to explore the endless opportunities that are available. In her free time she can be found spending time with her dog Quinn, or hanging out with family and friends.
