Lauren Hunt
Lauren has participated in sports throughout her life, but wasn’t exposed to athletic training and physical therapy until she reached UCLA. While completing her Bachelor’s Degree in Physiological Science, she was accepted into UCLA’s Sports Medicine Internship Program and assigned to the UCLA Baseball team. After three years in the UCLA Athletic Training Room working with Division I athletes that culminated with a trip to the NCAA College World Series in 2012, Lauren knew that she wanted to pursue a career in sports medicine and provide preventative and rehabilitative care to athletes of all ages.

On the recommendation of a friend who also worked as a Sports Medicine Intern at UCLA, Lauren applied to and was accepted into a dual degree program at Shenandoah University in Virginia. Shenandoah’s unique program allows graduate students to pursue a Doctorate in Physical Therapy and a Master’s Degree in Athletic Training simultaneously. As part of her graduate curriculum, Lauren had the opportunity to travel across the country and work with athletes of all ages and skill levels. Her clinical experience has included work with high school, college and professional athletes, including NFL Combine hopefuls during an internship at EXOS in Phoenix, Arizona. Lauren completed her graduate education earning her Master of Science in Athletic Training and her Doctorate in Physical Therapy in 2016 after a final internship with the University of Washington Huskies Football program. It was during this internship at UW that she was introduced to Brent after a player was referred for custom orthotics.

Lauren continues to enjoy all athletic and recreational activities and is an avid runner, having completed multiple half marathons with plans to complete more in the future. She lives in Seattle with her sister who works at Amazon.
