What you'll do

"I think you should bobsled!" A suggestion from a friend in passing, turned my life upside down. While most Olympic journeys start at a very young age, mine began at 30!

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.

What to Expect.....

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 I we will finish off with a Q&A.... I'm an open book, so ask me anything!

I look forward to meeting you!

I am a 2018 Olympic medalist and a 2020 World Champion in the sport of bobsled.

I have been an athlete all of my life, playing volleyball competitively in college. Having been born and raised in LA, I certainly never would have expected to find myself in a bobsled. But on 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, overcoming adversity and what it takes to be the best in the world. I can’t wait to share these insights with you!

I am so inspired by Lauren’s spirit! It was such an amazing opportunity to talk to an Olympian and learned about her journey. Especially she had a such special journey. What she said well resonated with me - there are tons of opportunities out there and we just need to be open to them!
