Dr. Lauren Scott
Verve Owner, Doctor of Chiropractic
Dr.Scott earned her Doctorate of Chiropractic from Sherman College of Chiropractic and graduated Magna Cum Laude. She received training in many techniques including SOT, Bio-Geometric Integration, Diversified, Pediatrics, Webster and many more. Dr.Scott studied nutrition from the perspective of alleviating symptoms and achieving balance to help her patient’s fully heal from challenges as well as reach their full health /life potential. Dr.Scott continues training in these areas with special attention given to pregnancy, pediatrics and women’s health issues as well as dancers. She is particularly fond of the work she does with infant feeding issues (food sensitivity, tongue-tie, reflux, cranial nerve dysfunction, etc.) and loves to help women in their individual pursuit of a successful breast feeding relationship. She works closely with the in-house IBCLC, Nicola Singletary to help achieve this success. Currently, Dr.Scott is only accepting new patients who are pregnant, postpartum, babies/children, preparing for pregnancy or are dancers.
Prior to her graduate studies, Dr.Scott completed degrees in Biochemistry, Biological Sciences and Genetics at North Carolina State University. Dr.Scott fully utilizes this education to help her patients from a nutritional and holistic perspective. She attended NCSU as a Park Scholar, the university’s highest academic honors scholarship.
In addition to being committed to health care, Dr.Scott has a life-long commitment to the arts. She currently takes classes at Arts Together and occasionally teaches master classes in Raleigh. Dr.Scott danced with the North Carolina State Modern Dance Company while in college. She also served the State of South Carolina as the President of the South Carolina Dance Association, board member of the South Carolina Association of Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance and board member of the Council of Arts Education Presidents. Dr.Scott has a passion and commitment to serving members of the dance community as their Chiropractor. Dancers have a special need to take care of their spines and extremities and Dr.Scott has a deep understanding for the specific alterations that need to be made for dancers, professionals and children alike.
Dr.Scott has received many other honors in her pursuit to creating excellence in her own life and the lives of others. She has been awarded a National Coca-Cola Scholarship, Robert Byrd Scholarship, North Carolina’s Junior Miss and 1st Runner-up at America’s Junior Miss. Dr.Scott continues to be committed to giving back to the community and is currently on the founding board for Raleigh Oak Charter School, the first Public Waldorf Methods Charter School in North Carolina. She also serves on the Park Scholarship selection committee.
While Dr.Scott loves Verve and all the kiddos she works with daily, the thing that gives her the most joy in her life is her family, particularly that cute little (big now) guy below.
