Lauren Hunter graduated from the University of Western Sydney in 2006. After living in Sydney and working as a community Occupational Therapist, Lauren travelled overseas, spending 3 years in Whistler, Canada. During this time she also travelled to parts of Europe, the UK, Central and South America.
Whilst in Costa Rica she completed an intensive yoga teacher training course in Power Vinyasa Yoga and this continues to be a strong passion of hers and a service that she will be offering to Active One clients in Frankston soon.
Whilst in Canada Lauren met her husband Dicky. They returned to Australia in 2011 and took up residence in Frankston South. Lauren and Dicky have two daughters, Neva (meaning snow in Spanish) is 4 and Amala (meaning pure in Sanskrit) is 18 months. Her husband Dicky owns and runs Waverley Cycles.
Lauren commenced working for Peninsula Health the following year, working for the Residential Outreach Support Service for a short period before securing a job as an Occupational Therapist with the Transition Care Program. Lauren works as a part of a multidisciplinary team to work with patients and their families towards complex discharge scenarios post long hospital admissions. Lauren has over 6 years experience working as an Occupational Therapist to assist people to live safely and independently within their own homes and their communities. Lauren is passionate about working with individuals and setting goals to improve their quality of life; using both her background in yoga and Occupational Therapy to achieve these goals.
Lauren’s typical weekends are filled with family time on the bikes, stand-up paddle boarding, running laps around the park or beach and doing head stands in her living room. Anything for an adventure!
