Lauren started her competitive swimming career at the age of nine years old and continued swimming through her Senior year at the University of Maine, Orono.   After spending the last 6 years in Massachusetts working in Campus Recreation at Springfield College and most recently at Boston University, Lauren moved back ‘home’ to Maine, where she serves as the Aquatics Director at the AYCC.  During her time in Massachusetts, Lauren added to her 13 years of coaching experience by serving as the Assistant Swim Coach for West Springfield High School, three seasons as the East Longmeadow Marlins Assistant Coach, one season as the Marlins Head Coach, one season as the Head Coach for the East Longmeadow High School Spartans, and one year as an Assistant Age Group practice coach for Charles River Aquatics.  Lauren is excited to continue her coaching career within the MMD community and give back to the sport she loves!
