Lauren LeWarne, Intern
Life is like a great book series. Each chapter and book introduces new characters with excitement, love, sadness, frustrations, and plot twists. Each book is like starting a new era in your life. I am excited to dive into your series and walk through the chapters of life with you. I am passionate about helping and meeting people where they are in their life story.
I received my Bachelor of Social and Behavioral Science degree in Family Services from the University of Northern Iowa in 2014. At that time, I was pursuing a career path in Child Life Specialty. God had me on a different path that led me to where I am today. I worked the Medicaid waiver population as a case manager from July of 2016 until January of 2023 at which point I transitioned to working with Medicaid and Medicare providers. I am completing my Master of Social Work degree in November of 2023. Once I have completed my degree, I will take my exam to become a Licensed Master of Social Work (LMSW). I’m excited to continue the journey that God has led for me here at New Life.
When I am not busy doing schoolwork, I love traveling with my husband and getting outdoors. I enjoy spending time with family and friends. Baking and cooking is my creative outlet and I love sharing my creations with others. My faith and my church are important aspects of my life.
Currently, I am seeing clients of all stages and ages. I have a wide range of experiences and expertise that I am excited to use in a counseling setting. I am excited to dive into your current chapter of life and navigate the story together.
