What you'll do

Hear about how my life went from board meetings and conference calls to bobsled helmets and Olympic dreams in a matter of 3.5 years! Life can be an incredible ride when you open yourself up to opportunities.

We'll connect online from our homes for introductions and set goals for our time together. I'll share my journey from the corporate world to the Olympic podium and share my thoughts on mindset, motivation, and overcoming adversity. I'll show you some of my gear, including my Olympic medal and we will finish off with a Q&A.
I am currently living at the Olympic Training Center in Upstate NY, you can behind the scenes look at my living quarters. Welcome!

I look forward to meeting you!

* if you don't see a date/time that works for you, message me, I will do my best to accommodate!

** Need a special guest to liven up your next teamwork call. Now you can book a private session with me to share with your coworkers.

"I think you should bobsled!" That was a suggestion a friend made in passing and it ended up turning my life upside down.

While most Olympic journeys start at a very young age, mine began at 30! Now, I am a 2018 Olympic medalist and a 2020 World Champion in the sport of bobsled. But I have been an athlete all of my life, having played volleyball competitively in college. I was born and raised in LA, so I never thought I’d find myself in a bobsled. But on a dare at the age of 30, I tried out for the US National Bobsled Team. Just three and a half years later, I found myself on the Olympic podium.

Now, in addition to training for my second Olympics in 2022, I travel the country telling my story of taking risks and overcoming adversity in an effort to share what it takes to be the best in the world. I can’t wait to share these insights wi

We booked Lauren for our virtual company trip and she exceeded expectations! Every attendee raved about how they felt a connection and loved every minute. They all came away with wanting more time to learn and interact!

My friends and I LOVED our experience with Lauren. She was funny, engaging, energetic, thoughtful, and shared great stories - ranging from bobsledding itself to the Olympic experience to the mental fortitude needed to compete at such a high level. We had a large group so we booked a private session, which worked out really well. Lauren took the time to ask about what we were most interested in and tailor her content to our group. We would love to have another session, and in fact several of us are looking into having Lauren speak in our corporate settings.

Lauren is very charismatic and inspiring, with truly remarkable story to tell. She’s learnt enormously from her experience and has a lot of value to add to anyone setting goals, dealing with dreams, insecurity and life challenges.

Absolutely LOVED the interactive session! Lauren's an eloquent storyteller who's also honest about her challenges and personal experiences leading up to the Olympic Silver in Pyeongchang. Her dynamic personality & humour made spending time with her so much fun! I thoroughly enjoyed the experience and left feeling inspired to do whatever it takes to achieve my goals regardless of age!

Lauren is an excellent story-teller and a professional in a very unique field. She's down-to-earth, and makes her guests feel at ease. It was a wonderful opportunity to ask a person in such a position as hers questions of my own! She was friendly and offered helpful life advice. I highly recommend this experience.
