Coach Lauren started her gymnastics journey in tot classes at the age of two. She worked her way through recreational classes to become a part of the YMCA competitive team. She enjoys coaching and giving back to the sport that gave her so many positive experiences. Lauren remembers how she felt learning a new skill and it makes her happy to be able to share that same feeling with her students. Her own coaches provided her with good role models and she hopes that she is doing the same for her athletes. When not coaching, Lauren attends Loyola University where she is earning her degree in English.
