Lauren was born and raised in the deep south of Andrews, South Carolina. She attended Converse College in Spartanburg, SC, where she received her Bachelors in Theatre and Elementary Education.
She is in her third year as a Graduate student at Texas Tech University in Lubbock, TX, where she is studying in the MFA Performance and Pedagogy program.
Her interests lie in voice and movement work, teaching, and directing. As an artist, she is excited by works that explore the "grey" areas, helping blur the lines of our extremely black and white society. She also is drawn to artistic pieces that explore themes of politics and religion, and how they influence our daily lives.
