When did you graduate from your course and how many years of experience do you have, in any particular areas?
Lauren graduated with First Class Honours from a Bachelor Clinical Exercise Physiology in 2020 at the University of South Australia. Her honours project evaluated the effects of exercise on the quality of life of cancer survivors.
Why did you choose Exercise Physiology?
I chose to pursue Exercise Physiology in Year 12, because I was passionate about being active, was fascinated by human physiology, and primarily because I always knew my career would centre around helping others. I continue to choose Exercise Physiology because of the people I work with and the profound impacts I witness exercise have on individual’s lives, enabling them to achieve more, and to regain independence, control and function.
