Meet Our Team

Lauren, Chiropractic Assistant – Clinical

lauren“I am passionate about chiropractic care and all the holistic approaches it has to aid the body as a whole. With opioids being used so heavily in health care, the adjustments along with functional movements and exercise can help increase the quality of life. I am blessed and constantly fulfilled to be a key player in the recovery process for patients.”

Lauren graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Exercise Science and Kinesiology in 2017. Her concentration was in physical therapy and she has worked in various inpatient and outpatient settings as well as areas of specialty treatment.

“I became a certified chiropractor assistant in 2019 and have loved every minute of exploring all that chiropractic care has to offer.” Lauren particularly enjoys working at the practice as Dr.Levi and the Optimal Care Chiropractic team put the quality of care first.

When she is not working, Lauren loves to be constantly moving whether it is dancing, hiking or hitting the gym. She also has a green thumb and loves being a plant mom.
