About

Started in 2018 by Lauren Farrow, Thrive4Life Occupational Therapy was developed from a passion to help people thrive across their life span.


Since graduating in 2010 from Charles Stuart University with a Bachelor of Health Sciences Occupational Therapy, Lauren has worked across a number of public and private Occupational Therapy fields including paediatrics, adult disability and community aged care.
