Founder of The Model Mentor & The Model Mentor Method
Certified Health Coach

Co-Founder of Model Me Masterclasses
I'm a Mom, Wife, Model, Certified Health Coach, Model Coach, Founder of The Model Mentor, and Certified in NIA & Pilates. I have lived on five continents working as an international model. You can see a sample of my portfolio at laurendeckert.com. I have traveled far, but New York City has always had my heart and has been considered home. When I'm not in the city, you can find me spending time with my family at our beach home on the Jersey Shore.
My work as a model has been featured in Harpers Bazaar China, Vogue Italia, Brides, Women’s Health, and Muscle & Fitness, hers, Harem SwimWear, HAH Swimwear, Aerie Swimwear, HUIT Lingerie, and Addiction Lingerie. Most recently, you can see me on Netflix, Next In Fashion 2, episode 8, as Bao Tranchi's Runway Model.
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 2 decades. Since childhood I have eaten mainly a plant focused and pescatarian diet.
While graduating with a BA in Art History from Fordham University, I decided to study at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. I attended classes before IIN went online. I also have an AA 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. 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, & the Jersey Shore.
I believe that most modern ailments can be healed by an abundance of whole foods, exercise, faith, love and joy. In 2020, I bought a tripod and started filming my workouts for clients. From there, I created The Model Mentor Method, applying my Pilates, Dance, and Healing Arts certifications, I created virtual low impact exercises, that can be done anywhere and anytime especially for models and busy women. Membership is monthly or annually. When I'm not working, you can find me spending time in nature, cooking, hiking, attending church, biking, playing tennis and traveling with my husband, our son, Antonios, and our sled dog, Elektra.
