Lauren is a retired Middle School Principal, teacher and swim coach originally from Connecticut. She attended Southern Connecticut University where she swam collegiately all four years and was selected as captain during both her Junior and Senior years. After graduation, she began her teaching and coaching career and in 1989 she was named the Connecticut Interscholastic Athletic Conference Coach of the Year for Girls High School Swimming. During this time she coached age group swimming and both girls and boys high school swimming.
When she was appointed as the Middle School Principal in her school district, Lauren did not have the time to be involved in coaching and was forced to let it go. She retired from education in 2006 and moved to Sedona. It was then that she realized how much she missed coaching and as a result returned to it. She is energized by and learning a great deal from Head Coach Sean Emery about USRPT (Race Pace training). Not only has she adopted this method as a coach, but she has incorporated it into her own workouts as a Masters swimmer. The result of training this way is that Lauren recently won four medals at United States Masters Spring National Championships in Indianapolis.
Her passion is working with kids and seeing them grow as both athletes and individuals. Swimming is a lifelong sport that instills dedication, persistence, patience, the value of hard work, responsibility and gun. All extremely valuable assets to acquire in life!
Lauren also dedicates every minute of her coaching to her brother, Bill Krumm, who passed away in March of 2017. He was an All American Swimmer in college and worked for USA Swimming. His memory inspires her every day.
