Lauren started coaching volleyball as a way to give back to her community and to stay involved in the game after her playing career ended. During that time, she realized she wanted to merge her passion for volleyball and teaching and fulfill a career in coaching.

Lauren has been a part to the Volleyball New Brunswick High Performance Program as both a Head Coach and Assistant coach winning multiple Eastern Elite titles.

In addition to CCAA and Team NB programs, Lauren has coached at multiple USports, CCAA and NCAA camps and clinics throughout the years.
