Lauren Hogan is a Registered Dietitian-Nutritionist whose passion for wholesome food started at a very young age in her family's backyard garden. Over the years, Lauren has gained experience in foodservice, public policy, community wellness programs, and clinical practice. However, she quickly discovered that the missing piece to healthful lifestyles is the behavioral psychology behind lasting change.

Through her professional development with the Wellcoaches School of Coaches, Lauren gained a deeper appreciation and understanding for what it takes to change. Today, Lauren combines compassion and knowledge to provide patient-centered recommendations in the acute care setting, as well as to help private clients achieve their best self and live fuller, happier lives.
