Lauren Flynn MPT

I am originally from Salisbury, NC where I also attended college. I graduated from Catawba College with a bachelors in Biology while also minoring in Chemistry and Music. During the year between Catawba and grad school, I lived in Winston Salem where I split my time between nannying for quadruplets and working as a caregiver for a precious girl who had Cerebral Palsy. During this year, I learned of my passion for special needs kids and decided to go on to Physical Therapy school. I received a Masters in Physical Therapy at Western Carolina University in 2011 and have been working with people of all ages for 2 years in Brevard while striving to specialize in pediatrics. In April 2013, I began working at Higher Ground and feel very lucky to have found such a fantastic group of pediatric therapists who share my passion for our kids. I have treated a variety of patients, ranging from orthopedic to neurologic diagnoses and have also worked as an aquatic therapist. In my free time, if you canít find me in the woods on a hike or run, you will likely find me either making crafts or curled up with a book.
