Lauren James
Occupational Therapist


Ko Hikurangi te maunga

Ko Ngāti Porou te iwi 

Having previously worked with the Taranaki and Capital and Coastal District Health Boards, Lauren started work with Active+ in October 2015. 

A commitment to the care and compassion for others guides Lauren’s work in her local community as an Occupational Therapist, specialising in Vocational Rehabilitation Services.  Skillfully developing networks over her career supports her dedication to helping to improve the quality of life for those in need within her community. 

Lauren relishes the challenge of working with new people and adapting to changing environments.

In addition to her commitment to the health and wellbeing of others Lauren celebrates the outdoors and all the Taranaki region has to offer.  A work life balance is important to her, often sharing time and her love of physical activity with family and friends.



My Goals

  • Continue upskilling in vocational rehabilitation
  • Run a ½ marathon
  • Take up road cycling
  • Continue enjoying all that life has to offer
