Her love for a healthy, fit lifestyle led her to understand food as a means to remain active, treat and prevent illness, and to live the healthy life that she - and you - desire. Her goal now is to pass her understanding on to her patients and teach them how to achieve the life and wellness that they desire through nutrition. Few things bring Lauren more joy than to see a patient reach his or her goals through the work they do together! When not “nutritioning”, Lauren enjoys an active lifestyle, including scuba diving, running, dancing, and spending quality time outdoors with her close friends and family.
