Lauren, as you may be able to guess is a red-headed model in Nashville. She actually became a model by accident. During college, she interviewed for Fashion Week for fun. What she initially thought would be a hobby turned into a true thriving passion. She took on projects and formed a diverse portfolio to present to various agencies. Her original plan was to earn a Ph.D. and become a Literature Professor. Instead, Lauren began to pursue creativity outside of the written word and she found an outlet for the ideas in her head and for her trials in life as well. Ultimately she hopes to use all of her experiences to become a creative director for a production company in the near future. Until then she will never forget how fortunate she is. And getting to work on set with so many other creatives still overwhelmingly humbles her. If there’s one thing Lauren wants others to know it’s that, one thought, one decision, one night can truly alter everything.
