Lauren Johnson’s Adventure: College Soccer, Sports Psychology, Mental Performance Coach (E.016)

podcast Jun 26, 2022

In this episode, you get to meet Lauren Johnson. I met Lauren at the Brand You Live event in Denver, Colorado in April 2022 through Mike Kim.  

Lauren thought she would get into Physical Therapy coming out of high school. Still, when a career-ending soccer injury happened, gaining her fifth concussion,  she discovered that the body is not the only thing that needs therapy after an injury.  The mental health challenges around athletic injuries can be challenging for athletes to recover from.

She prided herself on executing the right things as a player and takes that mentality into her profession. The characteristics that made her a good soccer player: work ethic, attention to detail, and ability to learn at a high level translate very well to the real world.

Those traits took her to the New York Yankees as a mental performance coach before she launched into leading her own company.
