Lauren Sisler
Emmy Award-Winning ESPN & SEC Sportscaster, Addiction Prevention Advocate


Lauren Sisler is a multinational award-winning sports broadcaster working with ESPN and the SEC Network.

As a sportscaster and former collegiate gymnast, Lauren Sisler is passionate about sports, but even more passionate about telling the stories of the coaches, athletes, and fans who make it more than a game.

Her journey was not always full of victories and celebrations. In 2003 as a freshman at Rutgers University, tragedy struck Lauren’s world when she unexpectedly lost both of her parents within hours of each other to their concealed battle with addiction. Through her grief and despair, Lauren found the courage to continue moving forward and find success.

“From this point forward, how are you going to respond to adversity? How will your resilience shine through and lead you on your journey despite the challenges and disappointments?”

As a professional storyteller, Lauren realized that her own story and experiences have the propensity to inspire and empower others to break down the barriers that stand in the way of us living our best life.

Through her authentic nature and vivid storytelling, Lauren’s presentations will take listeners on an emotional passage that will ignite gratitude and a reimagined purpose in their lives.
