A former International Hockey Player, Performance Coach & Mentor who has decided to share her knowledge and experience by helping sports people around the world improve their performance and become confident individuals.
Born in South Africa, Lauren's love for hockey began at age 11 when she was fortunate to have a national player as a teacher at school. He encouraged her not only play hockey, but also to play cricket in the boys team.
But, after missing out on the junior u18 national team this led her to take a gap year to England, where she remained for almost 10 years before returning back home (Cape Town). A few years later she made the senior national team including the London 2012 Olympic Squad, despite never playing in the junior national setup.
While she was in England, she gained 10 years of valuable experience working in sport and fitness in various roles including hockey coach, personal trainer, life coach, mental conditioning coach, performance coach and mentor.
