Lauren Shields is from Salt Lake City, Utah. She is a sophomore studying Environmental Science and Psychology. Lauren is an avid explorer: a lover of animals big and small, the desert, bodies of water, especially a cold mountain lake in the summer time, and her friends and family who partake in most of these adventures alongside her. Lauren spends her summers outside, and this upcoming summer, she will be working as a full time river guide in Idaho. In the winter she skis as much as possible and loves to ice skate. Lauren gains most of her peace and fulfillment from being in nature. Its way of healing the body and soul was addicting for Lauren and from a young age, she craved more of that peace that outdoors brought her. These cravings manifested themselves in a passion for climbing, skiing, trail running, yoga, backpacking and river running. Lauren joined the Wasatch to share this feeling of fulfillment and balance with other outdoor enthusiasts or perspective recreators alike.
