Hi, I'm Lauren

Here’s something I bet you didn’t know...

I ended up here totally unplanned. My intention was to go to law school just like my dad and fight to improve our food and health care system. But instead, I made a last minute pivot.

"As someone who was living with type one for 15 years, I thought I had it pretty much figured out. Little did I know though, Lauren would become one of the most valuable resources and ultimately, friend, I ever came across in making huge changes in my life.
 
Not only did Lauren help me to reach my goal of lowering my A1C from a 7.1 to a 6.5, I increased my insulin sensitivity (carb ratio went from 1:13 to 1:18), lost 8 pounds, started work outs that actually got me results, felt less stressed out around food choices, was eating more carbs and using less insulin, and she helped me to conquer my underlying anxiety issues as well. Lauren’s helped me see and understand my diabetes more clearly than I ever had before and decrease my emotional attachment to the numbers. I understand now how to more strategically adjust my pump settings and I’ve seen a huge difference just in that alone!"

I started working with Lauren during my 21st year of living with T1D. I had been stuck in a place where I felt like my diabetes management was “good enough” but not great. I felt like I had mental blocks that were affecting my ability to lower my A1C and to develop healthier habits.

During my time with her I developed a fitness routine (literally went from absolute zero exercise besides walking to doing 3-4 workouts a week), I lowered my A1C to 6.7 (the absolute lowest I’ve ever been in my 21 years of T1D), lost 9 pounds, gained a better understanding of food and the glycemic index, decreased my hypoglycemia anxiety, but most importantly—I gained confidence in myself.

I think the most magical part of the coaching relationship with Lauren is that she doesn’t “fix” or “change” you. Rather, she helped me to realize my potential and to trust myself more. And I am eternally grateful.

"If you are even considering signing up with Lauren, do it, you won’t regret it.
 
I signed up with Lauren for 6 months, and immediately there were improvements. I wasn’t just bettering my sugars and tightening my control, I was learning the WHY behind it- why certain foods were better than others in terms of diabetes management, why my sugars were going high at certain times, why past things I’d tried hadn’t worked, etc. I was gaining a holistic AND personalized understanding of Diabetes that I never had before. I’ve always been someone who works out and eats healthy, but Lauren took that to a whole new level. I gained strength, confidence, and a repertoire of easy, healthy recipes that fit with my lifestyle. The efforts were finally working.
 
With Lauren, I gained control- lowering my A1C from 8.0 to 6.0. But it was not just control of my diabetes that I gained. With Lauren’s guidance, I gained physical and mental strength. I gained confidence. I gained empathy and kindness towards myself, and tools I can use in order to manage my anxiety and negative self-talk. It sounds so corny, but Lauren literally changed my life."

I thought i was doing everything I could possible do to manage my life with Type 1 Diabetes. After having to switch endocrinologists 3 times a year and still not making progress, I’m so happy I found Lauren.
 
Lauren helped me learn more about myself in such a quick period of time. Over the span of 3 months, I have lowered my A1C from 7.5 to 6.5, I have cut my insulin intake down by almost 50% ( used to take around 65 units per day and now i take 36 units per day), I am waking up between 100-110, and I am feeling better in my skin than I have in a long time. Before Lauren I wasn’t testing as much because I was afraid of the number most likely being out of range, but now I get excited to test. I’m no longer binge eating and feel so much more in control because of all that Lauren has taught me.
 
Before I met Lauren, I was exercising almost 7 times a week but still gaining weight. I have now lost over 10 pounds just by learning and understanding how to properly fuel my body and establishing new exercise routines that are designed specifically for me. Lauren’s positive energy made her easy to confide in and I found her to be just as much as a friend as the best health coach ever.

Tracey McCarter, mother of 13 year old T1D Charli McCarter

I hired Lauren to work with my 13 year old daughter, Charli, who was experiencing difficulty in managing blood sugars due to rapid growth, hormones and the onset of t1d burnout.

Even though Charli has strong support from her family and endocrinology team, she most positively responded to Laurens’ advice and assistance because Lauren was able to come from experience and personal understanding of what it is like to be a t1d teen!

Lauren got Charli to understand the danger of her 11.7 A1C and to care about taking control and responsibility in managing her t1d to not only be healthier, but to feel better overall each and every day. Lauren worked with Charli to find realistic solutions and tools to help her better manage her blood sugar at school, when out with friends and on vacations with the family. Within a few months Charli’s a1c dropped to 6.9, and continues to range between 6.9-7.9, all while still managing those teenage hormones and growth!

Lacey Weisbaum, mother of 3 year old T1D Ethan, Illinois

"My 3-year old son, Ethan, was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at 20 months old. When we started with Lauren, Ethan’s A1C was 8.3, he had just gotten on an insulin pump, and I was at my wit’s end with roller coaster blood sugars that were NEVER in range.

Lauren taught us so much about not only what worked with Ethan’s body, but even more importantly WHY. he taught us how to keep a detailed food diary to help us identify which foods spike Ethan and how to manage his insulin on the rare occasions that we eat those foods. She helped us understand how and why exercise affects his blood sugar. She taught me how to use the data from his CGM and pump downloads to adjust his insulin-carb ratios and basal rates, and she gave me the confidence that I could do it without our endo team. She helped me manage my stress and emotions and to release my ownership over his blood sugars. She was available constantly.

Ethan’s last A1C was 6.7, and most importantly, we achieved that A1C with fewer lows and a higher percentage in range than ever before. We don’t feel deprived or like we are missing out on anything because of diabetes, and we owe all of that to Lauren. She continues to be an integral part of our diabetes team!"
