Lauren is from small town Bolivar, MO but traveled to Portugal, Denmark, Sweden, Romania and the UK to play professional basketball. After competing internationally for 7 years, she recently retired and landed in Kansas City. Aside from her love of basketball, she also has a passion for wellness and healthy living. She is part of the Peaceful Pig Vegan BBQ team, which is a small vegan BBQ pop up style business in addition to working at Whole Foods Market. Lauren came to Sage to be immersed in the Ayurvedic and Yoga culture with hopes that it will inspire her towards her next journey in this field. For right now she likes to think of herself as the resident hand towel elf!
