Hello, My name is Lauren Osmond. I was born in Charleston SC, and went to high school in Lewisburg WV. While attending college at the University of Tennessee I continued a life long love of horse back riding when competing in the intercollegiate riding team. It was my love of horses that pursed my interest in to the Occupational Therapy Assistant program to become certified in Hippotherapy. After graduating from school I settled in Venice FL where I met and married my husband. My new career called me to the geriatric population where i have practiced as a Skilled Occupational Therapy Assistant for the last 11 years. I have passed on my love for horses to both my daughter who is six and my son who is two both take riding lessons. My husband who also works in the therapy field as a PTA is originally from Medford Lakes, NJ. We are relocating to the area from Florida this summer. I'm looking to continue and develop my career as an Occupational Therapy Assistant in a new community.
I am a Certified Occupational Therapy Assistant with 11 years of experience. I have been working with individuals in various clinical settings including Acute care, Short term and Long term rehabilitation facilities. Well-versed in delivering effective rehabilitation services, documenting progress, time management and communication skills. My experience as an Occupational Therapist Assistant includes rehabilitation in physical disabilities including Auto Immune Disorders, Orthopedic Rehabilitation, Neurological Rehabilitation, and Amputee Rehabilitation. I have a focused team approach towards helping patients develop skills such as feeding, grooming, bathing, dressing and self independence. In my 11 years of experience I have developed a professional interest in Alzheimer's and Dementia Intervention and excel in wheelchair positioning and adaptive equipment.
