After graduating with a BA Theatre and Drama from Indiana University, she moved to Los Angeles, California and worked as an actress and makeup artist for four years. She got the chance to work on a Budweiser Super Bowl Commercial, some tv shows and independent films, and a show which toured at the Fringe Festival in Edinburgh, Scotland. She moved to Houston briefly and worked as a makeup artist there, and eventually came back to St. Louis, MO. She continued working as a makeup artist and eventually wanted a career change that was more fulfilling for her, so she volunteered and then got involved in the health care field. She works as a paramedic on an ambulance now and still works as a freelance makeup artist on the side. She met her husband, who is a police officer and 82nd Airborne Infantry Army veteran. They’ve been married for 3 years. Lauren has a 6 year old stepson, Dominic, and together they have a 2 year old daughter, Morgan. Life is good!!!
