Mrs. Lauren Scurry

 

I’m Lauren Scurry and I am the Speech Language Pathologist here at Shepard.

A little bit about my educational and professional background….I graduated from Texas A&M with a bachelor’s in psychology. I then received a Master’s degree in Family and Child Studies from Texas State University. After grad school, I worked in the mental health field for 6 years before going BACK to school for speech pathology.  graduated from Texas Woman’s University with a Master’s in Speech Pathology in 2013. I have worked in a variety of settings (home health, clinic, and schools), but always with pediatrics over the past 11 years. While I love every part of the field of speech pathology, my passions are augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) and stuttering.

A little bit about me personally…I live in the Shepard neighborhood with my husband (who is an adapted PE teacher and Special Olympics coordinator for Irving ISD) and my three daughters. I love getting to serve the kids and families right in my community! I love hiking, yoga, road trips (especially to the mountains), black coffee, and dark chocolate.  My family and I attend Citizen’s Church in Plano.
