Hello, and welcome, reader! I’m so glad you’re here.
My name is Lauren. I’m a former national and world champion baton twirler and a culinary school dropout. I love dogs and my family. I’ve made some huge mistakes in my life, and I’ve had some equally huge successes. (Everything’s big, all the time.) I’m a Doctor of Nursing Practice, Family Nurse Practitioner, and Master Certified Health Coach. I was in a religious cult and I escaped. Jesus is my everything because He absolutely saved me. And I love you!
