Lauren Fletcher

Professional Committee Member, Aphasia Victoria

Lauren graduated from LaTrobe University with a Master of Speech Pathology. She has worked as a speech pathologist in rehabilitation hospitals and community therapy centres across Melbourne. She currently works at Epworth Rehabilitation in Richmond. 

Throughout her clinical work as a speech pathologist Lauren has developed a keen interest in providing targeted treatment to people with aphasia and in connecting people with aphasia to community groups and organisations. 

Lauren is also passionate about raising awareness of aphasia, both within the medical profession and more widely in the community. Together with her rehabilitation colleagues she has travelled to countries including Pakistan, Nigeria, Morocco and Saudi Arabia to provide education and training to health professionals on the management of acquired communication disorders (like aphasia) in adults. 

Lauren also enjoys running, dining out at Melbourne’s many excellent cafes and restaurants, and spending time with her friends, family and her puppy.
