Lauren Bennett – Executive Director

Lauren hails from Wisconsin and has been obsessed with sports since early childhood. A call to the mountains led her first to Colorado, and then eventually to the idyllic lifestyle of Teton Valley. While earning her Master’s Degree in Sport Administration from the University of Northern Colorado, a friend asked her help out at a triathlon and a passion for putting on successful events was born. Since that time Lauren has been involved in various areas of the sports & events industry and is elated to combine both of those passions while leading TVF. In her free time she loves cheering for the Wisconsin Badgers & Green Bay Packers with her husband, and has newly taken up hockey through TVF’s Women’s Hockey program (and even scored a goal one time…it was only practice but hey a goal is a goal!).
