Lauren Reitsema

Lauren’s interest in relationship skills began when her parents divorced after 20 years of marriage. Currently, she is the Director of Communication at the Center for Relationship Education and has been speaking for over 15 years, teaching a variety of relationship skills to youth, adults and corporate teams. Her experience in navigating the stages of transition between her parents’ divorce, remarriage, and preparing for her own marriage are the inspiration for her book In Their Shoes, which releases this fall.

Lauren and her husband, Josh, have been married 11 years and have two children. All Colorado natives, they are avid skiers, outdoor enthusiasts and Broncos fans.
