As a child growing up in the Milwaukee area, Dr. Lauren suffered from sinus infections, asthma, and allergies. During her time in high school and college her health issues continued to get worse. While in college at Drake University, Dr. Lauren decided that something had to change and she could not continue to feel the way she was feeling. Around the same time, Dr. Lauren was training for her first marathon and knew if she felt better she would perform better and achieve her goal of completing her first marathon. She was determined to regain her health and stay healthy. As luck (or maybe fate) would have it, the family that Dr. Lauren nannied for during this time recommended that she see their chiropractor. She began seeing their chiropractor and immediately noticed that not only were her sinus issues gone, but she was breathing and sleeping better.
For the first time in her life, Dr. Lauren understood how great she was meant to feel and the true meaning of being healthy. She also couldn't help but notice how every time she visited her chiropractor's office, how happy she and everyone else there was. It became very clear to her that chiropractic was something she wanted to dedicate her life to. She immediately began researching chiropractic colleges across the country to attend, once she received her undergraduate degree from Drake University. The dramatic change and improvement in her quality of life led her to change career paths and go to chiropractic school. Dr. Lauren attended the prestigious Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa for her chiropractic education. During her time at Palmer she went on a humanitarian mission trip to Brazil to provide chiropractic care. Prior to this trip Dr. Lauren knew she loved working with children, but her belief was much stronger after returning.
