Lauren Hill, Co-opted
Role on Board: I joined the governing body in 2018, first as an Associate governor and then as a Co-Opted governor.
I own and practice from a Chiropractic, Health and Wellbeing Clinic in Berkhamsted. I graduated from the Anglo European College of Chiropractic with a BSc and Msc in Chiropractic Sciences and went on to complete a year postgraduate study to gain my Doctor of Chiropractic title.
I have over 16 years’ experience working in the health and wellbeing industry in many different frameworks; from GP surgeries to the Polyclinic at the London 2012 Paralympics. I have now been running my own practice for 10 years and have had to build on my skill set in order to achieve all this entails. I frequently attend Professional Development events on physical, nutritional and emotional wellbeing and how it sits in our ever-changing landscape. I thrive on working with individuals to enhance their physical wellbeing and help guide their lifestyle choices.
Interest in being a governor: From my first visit to Bridgewater I was struck by their commitment to their pupils, of course academically but, also their commitment to set the foundations and help them learn how to navigate their way through real life. Based on the ethos and values of Bridgewater I feel inspired to step up and support in any way I can.
