The Model Mentor

with Lauren Deckert





My name is Lauren Deckert and I have lived on five continents working as an international model. You can see a sample of my portfolio at I have traveled far, but New York City has always had my heart and has been considered home. My work as a model has been featured in Harpers Bazaar China, Vogue Italia, Brides, Women’s Health, and Muscle & Fitness, hers. I've walked the runway for top designers at New York Fashion Week (NYFW), Miami Beach Swim Week, and New York Bridal Fashion Week every year for over a decade. I've also been a vegetarian since childhood,thriving on mainly a plant based diet. While graduating with a BA in Art History from Fordham University, I decided to study under Joshua Rosenthal at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. ’I attended classes before IIN went online. I also have an AS from The Art Institute of Ft. Lauderdale in Art & Fashion Marketing. All of my experiences and studies have prepared me to not only take exceptional care of myself, and my growing family, but also to effectively mentor and coach aspiring models and women. I am a drugless practitioner and certified Health & Nutrition Coach. After living out of the suitcase for many years, I opened a private practice in summer of 2016 while I was pregnant with my son. My coaching method is pretty simple, I believe we are our thoughts,we are what we eat, and through movement we find health. Three of my main principles to my coaching practice are, Transformative Thinking, Mindful Eating, and Movement. Additionally, I am also the co-founder of Model Me Master Classes, where I host and conduct weekend Master Classes for new models in New York, Miami, and LA. 


I believe that most modern ailments can be healed by an abundance of whole foods, exercise, faith, love and joy. After sponsoring a child in Ecuador for years, I decided to create my own non-profit. I wrote the business plan alone one night in Model Housing in South America. Models Doing More provides volunteer opportunities for Model Ambassadors wishing to offer assistance to underprivileged school children and orphaned elephants in Sri Lanka. I have a dance background and am a white belt in NIA Dance. Currently, I am studying under Jai Star Dance learning mindful breath work, meditation, yoga, and dance to empower feminine energy as well as getting certified in pilates. I am married to my best friend and we are parents to a healthy active toddler. If you have additional questions for me, I would love to hear from you!
