Lauren Sigman has over 35 years of experience in personal financial planning, divorce planning, finance and real estate. She created Sigman Financial Fitness® to work with people looking for individualized, creative ways to manage their financial fitness, no matter what shape they’re in.
An avid skier and rock climber, Lauren’s passion for the outdoors drew her to Colorado in the early ’90s. Before moving to Colorado, Lauren spent 12 years in the financial industry in New York. She was an investment banker with Morgan Stanley & Co., a financial analyst with J.W. O’Connor & Co., and Vice President of Finance for Silverstein Properties, a Forbes 400 commercial real estate developer in New York City, where she was responsible for arranging over $1 billion in financing.
Lauren is also a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™, a member of the Colorado Chapter of the Financial Planning Association and an Associate Member of the Colorado Bar Association in the Family Law division. She earned her undergraduate degree from the Woodrow Wilson School for Public and International Affairs at Princeton University in 1980 and her MBA from Harvard Business School in 1984.
In addition to her professional activities, Lauren is active in the community. She is a Director of the American Alpine Club, serving on the Finance Committee.
Established in 1902 by the nation’s leading climbers and conservationists, The American Alpine Club promotes and preserves the climbing way of life. The AAC evolved from a social club for elite adventurers located on the East Coast to a more centrally located Denver-area organization that actively participates in international dialog about environmental policy, high altitude safety and medicine, innovation in alpine tools, clothing and survival technologies, sponsors expeditions, and investigates controversies in the world of exploration.
John Muir (1838-1914), considered by some to be a founder of the wilderness preservation movement, was the American Alpine Club’s second president (1908-1910). Four women, including Annie Peck (1850-1935) and Fannie Bullock Workman (1859-1925), were among the founding members, all of them trouser-wearing suffragettes and strong leaders. Peck was the first to summit Peru’s 22,205′ Mt. Huascaran in 1908. Workman, along with her husband William, was a Himalayan cartographer and explorer, and competed quite publicly with Peck for the women’s altitude record
