Lauren grew up in New Jersey and has been a competitive swimmer her whole life, starting at age 8 with summer league swimming. She also swam for her high school, college, and USA swim team, where she held numerous individual and relay records. 

Lauren currently lives in Houston, TX, where she is an avid runner for Bay Area Running Club and also a swimmer with Houston Cougar Aquatic Masters. In particular, Lauren specializes in open water swimming. She won the Snapping Tortuga 2.5K swim race twice, holds the course record at the Sharkfest Waco 4K, swim, and finished second overall female at the North Shore 10K in Oahu, to name a few. Next up, she is swimming around Key West (12.5 miles) on June 1, 2019, and competing at USMS Open Water Nationals in the 1-mile and 5-mile events in August 2019. 

Regardless if she is swimming, running, doing yoga, or simply lounging around her house, Lauren always rocks JOLYN. It is truly the best brand- not only is everything super comfortable and flattering, but it also looks amazing on, both in an out of the water!
