Born and raised in New Jersey, Lauren began her journey in performing playing softball as a child, after her parents realized she liked singing her team’s cheers a whole lot more than stepping up to bat. After obsessively watching a mixture of Beauty and the Beast, Lady Gaga, and Julie Andrews, she finally decided to act in her first show. The rest is history!
Lauren is now a proud AEA member and musical theatre graduate of Carnegie Mellon University School of Drama (Class of 2021). She is passionate about cultivating joy, inspiration, and change by utilizing her artistry on the stage and screen. She is also driven to elevate the stories of women and the Latinx community.
Outside of performing, Lauren loves a good empanada more than most things on this Earth. You can find her instructing classes on the yoga mat, cooking plant based meals for her loved ones, or exploring nature in her favorite pair of 70’s denim.
