Have I mentioned that I love to interview trailblazers and visionaries in the OT profession? I also love when these trailblazing OTs really lean into curriculum design and program development, helping to pave the way for more therapists to do this work. Which is why I am thrilled to be featuring Laura Rowan in today’s episode, an OT that is quickly developing a name for herself in the world of pelvic health AND professional development.
In this episode you’ll hear about:
What helped Laura jump from the world of SNF and geriatrics to pelvic health therapist and purpose-driven entrepreneur
How Laura inadvertently signed up for her first pelvic floor course, not quite knowing what she was getting herself into
Why pelvic health helped her to rediscover her passion for OT
The first time Laura discovered she could use her hands therapeutically to listen and communicate with the brain
What Laura learned from working in the insurance world as a pelvic health therapist
How CoVid was an instigating factor in Laura creating her first professional development course
The different ways Laura currently works with her clients through her practice
A breakdown of Laura’s CEU-approved weekend course, PR-MATT (Pelvic Rehab Manual Assessment & Treatment Techniques)
You can connect with Laura on Instagram and Facebook, or through her website Essential Pelvic Health.
