Degrees and Certifications:

Lauren Wattenbarger

My name is Lauren Wattenbarger and I teach the Health Science courses at CHHS. I came to Corinth with a degree in Public Health from UNC-Wilmington. I earned my certificate as a Certified Health Education Specialist and worked for nine years as a wellness coordinator, health educator and coach in both the corporate and private sector.

The door to teaching had been opened on several occasions and it wasn’t until November 2015 that I decided to walk through it; I am so glad I did.  I have a great love for people and a passion to make a difference in their lives through improved health and fitness.  While the classroom setting is different from my past teaching environments, I consider it an honor to get to share with students at such an impressionable age.

In November 2015, I married my best friend after ten years of dating!  We currently have a 14 month old little girl and are expecting a second child in February.  We also have a chocolate lab who is quite a playful handful!  My husband and I love being active and spend a good amount of time in the gym each week.  I am a CrossFit Level 1 coach as well as CrossFit Kids coach on the side and enjoy every minute of teaching people of all ages that fitness is fun.  My husband and I both serve in our local church and enjoy sharing our lives with others.
