About Me

Lauren Dovin-Liu, M.Ed., M.S., CCC-SLP

 

Lauren Dovin-Liu was voted, "most creative" for her graduate school superlative. She loves art, gardening, and learning new crafts. Lauren is proudly neurotypical. While this has lead to her own challenges as a learner, she

thrives on mentorship and has been able to find success. 

Advocacy, perseverance, and mentorship are core components to the foundation of her personality.

Lauren is married and lives in Gaithersburg with her husband, Tim, and two wonderful children (ages 1 and 3 years). Her daughter, Violet, is an avid fan of dinosaurs; her son, Kingston, is a happy baby who loves his mum and is just learning how to walk.

 

Lauren knows first-hand how an initial diagnosis can impact families. Having had spent time in the ICU herself marked a moment of fear and uncertainty for their family. Her daughter Violet required a team of specialists (including an SLP and OT) to graduate NICU. As a result, Lauren understands the importance of empathy and connection in providing the best care for families facing life's challenges. 

Through her own life experience, Lauren has become an example of a parent who never gives up and a clinician who goes above and beyond to help her patients and their families. She knows that with the right support and guidance, children can achieve amazing things, and she is dedicated to helping families navigate their own unique journeys with compassion and grace.
