Lauren is from Washington state, she has moved around quite, a bit attending a junior college in Southern California, before moving to Phoenix in August 2014 to pursue a bachelors degree at ASU.

She grew up in a very small town (about 2,000 people) where her softball coach also ran the local swim program at a special needs camp where she first started teaching swim lessons. Lauren credits her family for what she's been able to accomplish so far, and chose to work at Hubbard because of the strong family values and the amazing opportunities that it provides for instructors and its students alike.
