What People Are Saying About Lauren Sisler

Testimonials

Speaking Titles
Lauren has two inspirational presentations empowering individuals to fall in love with their own story.

Life rarely goes according to script, and our success is often defined by our defeats.

As a freshman at Rutgers University, Lauren unexpectedly lost both of her parents within hours of each other to their concealed battle with prescription drug addiction. In the aftermath, she was forced to navigate the world unknown and make some tough choices that are bound to every chapter of her story.

Whether you are a team leader, a company owner, or taking the next step in your career, you can use the power of your story to rebound from tragedy with courage and resilience.

“Sports is my passion, but my purpose is to share what I learned from my parents’ story – and how I learned to fall in love with my own.”

In her keynote, Lauren will guide you on an emotional journey through her personal story woven together with compelling stories from the sidelines. The audience will be:

  • Empowered to embrace their own story and find value in life’s challenges as a means of strength and catalyst for growth
  • Inspired to be resilient during times of change
  • Encouraged to maintain a sense of humor through some of life’s embarrassing moments
  • Motivated to take chances and walk through doors they never dreamed possible

As a freshman at Rutgers University, Lauren Sisler unexpectedly lost both of her parents within hours of each other to their concealed battle with prescription drug addiction. She had a choice to make: hide the story and suffer alone, or use her struggles to help someone walk out of the shadows.

It was only when Lauren started working as a reporter for ESPN more than a decade after the death of both her parents that she started to truly undo the shackles of shame.

“My job is to find the truth in athletes’ stories and report on how their personal lives shaped who they are on the field. And yet, I couldn’t tell the truth about my own story because of the shame I inherited.”

“Once I started the painful process of opening up, I discovered that there are silver linings in the trauma I experienced from my parents’ addiction. It has shaped me into who I am; it has given me a different lens.”

Through her addiction advocacy work, Lauren seeks to help break the stigma and eliminate the shame associated with substance abuse and mental health disorders.

In her keynote, Lauren will take you behind the scenes of her extraordinary journey and how tragedy ignited purpose and gratitude in her life. The audience will be:

  • Empowered to shatter the stigma they might feel surrounding the obstacles they are confronted with
  • Inspired to embrace their own story with great courage and fortitude
  • Led to discover the powerful and often life-changing impact their story can have on the lives of others
  • Encouraged to be resilient and build confidence during times of uncertainty
  • Motivated to view life through a lens of purpose and gratitude and live like champions
Walking Out of the Shadows of Shame

Lauren Sisler's Story

Lauren had a choice to make when she lost her parents: hide the story and suffer alone, or use her struggles to help someone walk out of the shadows.

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 prescription drug addiction.

Lauren struggled with the truth surrounding her parents’ secret life and death for the next ten years. Having triumphed over this hardship, Lauren now spreads awareness about addiction and the devastation it can cause for those who abuse substances, their loved ones, and the community.

Lauren Sisler is a two-time national and regional Emmy award-winning sports broadcaster who joined ESPN and SEC Network in 2016 as a sideline reporter for both college football and gymnastics.

She reflects on how her faith bolstered her journey through grief, gave her the courage to trust in God’s timing, and has led her to serve as an addiction prevention advocate.
