Lauren Sisler is a national award-winning sports broadcaster who has been captivating audiences with her insightful coverage on ESPN since 2016. Not only is she a powerhouse in the broadcasting world, but she’s also the author of the compelling new book, 'Shatterproof.' 


As a sportscaster and former collegiate gymnast, Lauren 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. Lauren's life was not always marked by victories. In 2003, as a freshman at Rutgers University, tragedy struck when she unexpectedly lost both parents within hours of each other to their hidden battle with prescription drug addiction. Through her grief, Lauren emerged from the shadows of shame and found renewed hope. “I carried that shame until I finally realized I wouldn’t let the pain I harbored define me, just like it didn’t define my parents.” 


Harnessing her pain as a catalyst for growth, Lauren embraced her story, transforming her anguish and heartbreak into a source of strength and healing. She now recognizes that living courageously and authentically can unlock remarkable potential, and she embodies this truth in every aspect of her life. Through vibrant storytelling, Lauren connects deeply with her audience, motivating them to redefine their own stories to find peace and purpose. 


"Your story is significant. Learn to love it, then do something with it." Her message is clear: confront adversity with bravery, own your story, and let it propel you towards a future filled with greater meaning and fulfillment.

I would strongly recommend Lauren to speak to any group that needs to hear her inspirational message of hope. Trust me, you will not regret it.

Tim Ayers | Alabama Utility Contractors Association, Executive Director

“We were fortunate to have Lauren speak to the students and faculty of Leeds High School. What an impactful testimony. She delivers her message with such passion and zeal that everyone in attendance was captivated from start to finish. Anyone struggling with a difficult situation, addiction, lack of motivation, or self-esteem issues would benefit from hearing Lauren Sisler speak. After listening to her we were all motivated to persevere and work through the pitfalls of life. Thank you, Lauren you have been a blessing, to Leeds High School!”-

Rayford Williams | Leeds High School, Principal

"Lauren delivers a powerful message, unmasking the global struggles with addiction, and delivering it right into her audience's lap. Her story knocked me to my knees, and then lifted me up with hope. I was shocked that this happens, angered that more wasn't being done, and inspired to join the fight. It honestly made me want to love those close to me more, work harder, and chase my dreams. It didn't take long for Lauren to expose every nerve and make me feel alive."

Jim Dunaway | JOXRoundtable Sports Talk Radio Host

“Lauren’s personal story and willingness to share with our student-athletes and staff continues to have a tremendous impact to this day. She made us all realize that we will have struggles as we go through life but they don’t define us or hinder us from using the gifts that God has given us to make a difference. The world is truly a better place because of Lauren, her story and her gifts.”

Martin Newton | Samford University, Director of Athletics

"I thoroughly enjoyed working with Lauren on our sold-out event! Lauren's mix of passion, humor, and authenticity on the stage made her the perfect leader for our event. Her story is so powerful and her wisdom is beyond her years. Most of all, she is the same backstage as she is on stage. I am a huge Lauren Sisler fan!"

Shawn Lovejoy | Courage to Lead, CEO

Just like the college football stories she brings to life, Lauren's narrative leaves her audience inspired to face challenges head-on, persevere through adversity, and emerge victorious, embodying the spirit of a true champion.

Nick Saban - Former Alabama Football Coach and Seven-Time National Champion

Lauren is amazing. Everyone has fallen in love with her. The students and attendees raved about her. They remembered the concepts she shared and were so taken with her story. She is a PRO. Not only does she talk about the broadcasting and her early life but she saves the apex of her talk for near the end when she says HOW her parents died and how she turns that into a powerful message is stunning. I got choked up so many times and I already knew what was coming. I hope she can be booked everywhere, her message is so important!

Leslie Dahl, Juneau Rotary Pillars Chair

Lauren joined our annual sales meeting as the keynote speaker to fire up our teams, encouraging them to embrace their unique stories and recognize the magic of making connections. Collaborating with our leadership team, she crafted her message to resonate with our team members and integrated her insights with our overall vision for the event which provided an impactful experience for all. Her keynote message was the highlight of our meeting and left our team energized and inspired.

Amanda Heptinstall, MOI Vice President, Brand Marketing and Client Experience

We were blessed to be able to have Lauren Sisler as the keynote speaker for our sold-out Women Honoring Women Gala. From our first contact with Lauren, she was enthusiastic, professional, and “all in” for our event, willing to help out in any way she could. Her 45-minute presentation was nothing short of remarkable and captivated everyone in attendance. It was truly an incredible evening. We thank Lauren for being so open, honest, and inspirational while telling her heartbreaking story, and for being so down-to-earth and fun. We also applaud her for taking her personal tragedy and using it to raise awareness and educate others. By sharing her story, she is helping break the stigma surrounding addiction.

Linda Davis, Families Against Narcotics Executive Director

When trying to find a speaker who could help bridge the recovery community with the broader community, educate people about addiction, and break down the stigma of addiction, we were beyond lucky to find Lauren. Not only was she courageous to tell her personal story, but she inspired an entire community to change based on her energy, passion, and big heart. Lauren went above and beyond the job to get to know us, hear our story, wishes, and desires, and got to know our community from meeting with kids at the Boys and Girls Club, to having a soda at the recovery club, to rubbing elbows with guests and taking the time to be with them. I am so incredibly impressed by Lauren, her humility and personable nature, and only wish we could have her speak to our community on a monthly basis. Thanks Lauren for being you and teaching our community to do the same.

Jennifer Skolaski, PhD, Community & Nonprofit Leadership Consulting, LLC

Lauren Sisler is not only good at what she does, but she also makes us better at what we do. Lauren has added far more to Impact Leadership Conference than her personality and poise on stage and camera – which are, themselves, world-class. She fully adopted our goals as her own and filled the role of an expert guide through the planning process. Her energy was contagious and lifted both our team and our audience.

Mark Pettus, Highlands College, CEO (Host of Impact Leadership Conference, presented by John Maxwell and Highlands College)
