Peer Health Educator

Hello! My name’s Lauryn and I’m a senior majoring in Psychology and pursuing a minor in Education, Learning, and Society. I’ve worked with LiveWell as a Peer Health Educator and I’m so excited to serve students as a Peer Wellness Coach as well. 

In my work, I love to highlight the importance of treating yourself with compassion and pursuing a growth mindset. I’m a recovering perfectionist and so I recognize the importance of shifting your mind to seeing setbacks and feedback as part of the process. I’m also a huge fan of positive psychology. I love looking at what makes people happy and intentionally cultivating positive emotions, relationships, and purpose into our lives. 

As a coach, I’m here to explore whatever brings you in and help you find skills and knowledge to take it on. When we’re in a coaching appointment, my goal is to actively listen, express care, and place you center at the center of each session. Finding meaning, purpose, and ‘our place’ can take time and effort, especially in a large school like UW. However, I’m passionate about connecting with you and working together to find the best steps forward. I look forward to meeting students and I can’t wait to see what we can learn from each other!

I’m also a Resident Adviser so if you see me around the dorms, say hi! Beyond school and work, I know three things to be true: I love big books and I cannot lie. Black cats are cool, especially mine. And Washington hikes in the summer will steal anyone’s heart.
