Lauren is a kamikaze skier, an enthusiastic cyclist, a compulsive spin class addict, has a powerful golf swing, and mostly beats her husband playing tennis!
To fill in the wee hours Lauren has served as an EMT, ski patroller, YMCA climbing and high ropes team building facilitator – and, in the last few minutes of a day, manages to study the difficult art of oil painting.
Great personal accomplishments include cycling over 4,000 miles raising money for Special Olympic athletes, competing in triathlons, hiking the Presidential range along the Appalachian trail with five eleven year olds, the challenge was the eleven year olds not the mountains, and helping to save lives as an EMT, and as a Ski Patroller.

All five trips with her brother-in-law, Ron Burrows, an RAF pilot, Colonel to be exact (hey if your husband doesn’t bike ride you do the next best thing and convince his brother to go, which didn’t take much convincing). Ron has the wonderful skill of navigation so both returned home safely on all trips. North Carolina and Natchez trips also included good friend and local biking companion Danny Price.
Greatest satisfactions in life seeing the success of her son Cameron who has always exceeded all her expectations.
