Hey there, I’m Lauren… Full-time SLP, wife, southern girl, and dog mama. I already feel like we’re friends, since I get to interact with you so much on social media. Thanks so much for stopping by!
First off, let me just say that even though this is an “about me” page, my life is not about me. My entire life is and, by His grace, will always be about Christ. I am a Christian, unashamedly and so thankfully. He reached down to an unworthy sinner and picked me up, washed me clean, and made me His child. It’s so humbling. Although this is a blog about speech therapy, He is the reason I do what I do. 🙂
I hope and pray you find some encouragement and inspiration each time you wander over to Busy Bee Speech. No matter where you’re at in your education, parenting, or SLP journey, I’m so overwhelmingly thankful you’re here.
As a school-based SLP, I know first hand just how crazy managing your caseload and balancing your life really is. That’s why I love creating engaging and quality activities for YOUR STUDENTS and mine. Doing the speech ain’t easy, y’all.
- I’m a newlywed and recently married my best friend. We’d known each other for about 12 years before we dated, but once we reconnected, we both just knew.
- My little malti-poo is called Maisy. She is rotten (see below)! Extremely smart and loves to bark. Her best friend is my parents’ malti-poo, Libby Lu, and when they’re together, they always keep us laughing.
- I’m a part of an awesome church where my dad is pastor. I’ve got 2 younger sisters who are always ready to be goofy with me and 2 sweet parents who raised me right. There are no kids in the family yet, but we all have tons of fun and are so blessed to have one another.
- I’m fortunate in that most of my family and extended family all live here in Louisiana. When we all get together, it’s happy and crazy and usually centered around food! We love our crawfish and gumbo and red beans with cornbread.
I am blessed beyond measure with an amazing family, sweet friends, and an adorable godson! #thankful
