About Lauren Overocker

Biography

Lauren Overocker, OTR/L enjoys using her skills to empower her patients and their families. She currently spends her time working with children and families in both inpatient and outpatient settings.

Lauren's expertise includes managing acute infant-feeding issues in the hospital and working with PICU patients who have experienced a trauma. She frequently supports the developmental progress of patients in the NICU – particularly those with prematurity, cerebral palsy, and/or musculoskeletal conditions – to help normalize movement patterns. She is passionate about involving parents in developmental activities during a child's hospitalization. Lauren is also a member of the St. Luke's burn clinic team, helping in wound/scar evaluation and management, rehabilitation exercises, splinting, and prescribing and procuring customized pressure garments. 

In addition to patient care, Lauren participated in the development of a multidisciplinary ICU program to ensure patients receive early rehabilitation when appropriate, which helps increase function and independence after hospitalization, reduce consequences associated with prolonged hospitalization, and lower risk of future hospitalization.

Lauren earned her master's degree in occupational therapy from Idaho State University where she focused her research in development and infant-caregiver interactions. She enjoys traveling and has volunteered at a pediatric occupational therapy clinic in Ecuador.
