Get to know Lauren:
What is your job role in the company?
I’m the founding director of the company so I wear a few hats. My primary roles are to support our team to provide excellent customer services and therapy supports to our clients, keep on top of the ever-moving nature of the NDIS and clinically I primarily provide consultation regarding Specialist Disability Accommodation.
What is the best part of your job?
Being able to engage with such a diverse range of people and companies all working to serve the same purpose. Building a team that can sustainably provide OT services in a highly adaptable, agile and responsive way to what the market is demanding and being in control of how we do that.
What do you consider your specialty area?
Everything specialist disability accommodation and most things NDIS are my expert offerings. I am a design consultant for disability accommodation projects, both predating SDA and since SDA emerged. I believe as OT’s working with the clients who are going to be the intended users of SDA homes, we are well placed to provide input on functional design/layout of homes and provide input on technological inclusions that improve independence. Being able to bridge the gap between what participants want and need in SDA, and SDA providers seeking to build fit for purpose homes is a really rewarding position.
