Life has continuously pulled me in two directions.

The first love was for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM), where 16 year old Lauren thought she was going to be a neurosurgeon….. before realizing she had somewhat shaky hands…. so she graduated from the University of Toronto in Industrial Engineering Instead.

The second love, for media and entertainment, I some-what fell into between winning Miss Teen Canada looking for a scholarship and my love of sports. Since then, this side of my life has snowballed in the most unexpectedly exciting ways, from working as the In-Arena Host host for my favourite team, the Toronto Maple Leafs, to winning Miss Universe Canada and placing in the Top 10 at Miss Universe to currently being an on-air correspondent for CityTV covering content for the 2019 Grammy Awards Red Carpet Broadcast, Breakfast Television and Cityline.
