Lauren is a Physical Therapist who is passionate about providing the best care for her patients. Her connection to sports medicine began during her time as a 3-sport athlete. Experiencing the difference that great AT's and PT's can make in an athlete's and team's performance was inspirational for her. Sports medicine is the perfect marriage between science, medicine and her natural competitive drive.

Lauren started her professional career as an Athletic Trainer at the University of Louisville caring for the Men's & Women's Cross Country and Track & Field Teams. Lauren followed her passion for Division I Athletics back home and continued her career as an Athletic Trainer at Marquette University. During her time there, she served as the Athletic Trainer for Men's Soccer, and Men's & Women's Tennis. During her tenure at Marquette, Lauren cared for teams who won multiple Big East Regular Season and Tournament Championships, as well as two NCAA births with Men's Soccer, including one Sweet 16 appearance.

These experiences inspired Lauren to expand her clinical knowledge and complete her Doctorate in Physical Therapy so she could design as well as implement programs like these. Lauren's primary goal is to provide an "elite athlete" level of care to all types of athletes - whether elite or recreational. Lauren also believes in a multidisciplinary approach to patient care. She partners with doctors, coaches, and strength and conditioning coaches to create a well rounded rehabilitation program so her athletes return to sport well conditioned, strong, and prepared for the demands ahead of them.
