Lauren earned her Master’s of Science degree in HR Development from Villanova University and a Bachelors of Arts degree in Communications Studies from UNC Chapel Hill (go Heels!).

Having always enjoyed a standard gym, but with limited results, and completing three half marathons, she and her husband tried CrossFit for the first time in the summer of 2012. Instantly loving the intensity of the workouts and the incredible community, CrossFit became an integral part of her life. The constant challenge of the programming and the physical results she has seen have kept her coming back each day, and have continued to keep her committed to CrossFit year after year.

Lauren began coaching in 2016. You can find her at the gym most days (with her husband, and fellow coach, Patrick), enthusiastic to workout, to cheer others on, and welcome newcomers into the community. She enjoys coaching and pushing others to perform their best each day.

Professionally, Lauren is in Human Resources working at a large local employer.
