Lauren Kranig - Head Coach

This is my 9th year coaching at Richfield. I am a previous RHS swimmer - graduated 2010. I went to college at St. Catherine University where I graduated with a Bachelor's of Social Work degree. I am currently a Licensed Social Worker, working as a case manager for seniors 65 and older. I enjoy tacos, pizza and crime dramas on Netflix. 

This is my favorite time of the year when I get to coach young women and help shape their minds! I think that it is so important to mold young women into strong, independent, courageous individuals who are not afraid to go after what they want, even if it is outside their comfort zone. One of the mottoes we have for this time is to "be comfortable being uncomfortable." I look forward to working with your daughter to become a more well-rounded individual!

Phone number: 612-581-4598  Never hesitate to call, text or email me. Due to the nature of my day job I have my phone with me nearly at all times and my email goes to my phone! If I do not answer your call, please leave me a voicemail and I will call you back!

This is my 3rd year coaching. I am a previous RHS swimmer - graduated 2015. I also coach the Richfield high school Swim and dive team, teach swim lessons year round and also work at Lifetime Fitness. I am currently taking my generals through Normandale. In the fall I am going into the Medical Assistant program through Normandale. In my free time I like to hangout with my friends, go on adventures around Minnehaha falls, cook food, and most importantly hangout with my dog Jazzy. I am very excited about this season and can not wait to see how much each girl will improve and watch them reach some of their goals! My phone number is 612-272-7185. I typically have my phone with me. If you cannot reach me, please call Lauren.
