As a young girl, Lauren dreamed of skating in the Olympics. When she overheard a coach remark that a girl with hearing loss could never make it to the US national competitions, she was determined to show she could do that and so much more. She competed in the 2015, 2016 and 2017 USFSA National Solo Dance Series Championships and in 2017, placed fourth in the country. Now a college sophomore, Lauren continues to succeed on the ice and in the classroom. A dedicated volunteer for the Hearing Loss Association of America and a mentor for incoming students at her college, she works hard to ensure that others can succeed as well!
