Dr. Lauren also presented her research study “Disordered Eating & Performance Related Injury Rates in female collegiate athletes” at the International Society of Sports Nutrition’s National Conference in 2006. Her certification through Dr. Stacy Sims gives her the knowledge on the specific needs of the female athlete through all stages of life. As we say, “Women are not small men!”. Dr. Lauren specializes in working with a women’s physiology, not against it. Her most recent certification in Webster Technique allows Dr. Lauren to provide the gold standard in prenatal care.
Dr. Lauren continues to study the latest research in spinal care, injury rehabilitation and injury prevention and frequently has chiropractic students shadow her. In her spare time, Dr. Lauren trains for ultramarathon trail races and goes horseback riding any chance she gets!

Dr. Lauren says the highlight of her personal life is watching their three kids develop into strong, intelligent and passionate individuals. She is known for being the loudest spectator at every cross country meet and track meet she goes to!
