Previously, Lauren spent over two years anchoring News 10 Today. She first joined the WILX news team as its weekend anchor/reporter in 2008. While at WILX, Lauren's covered everything from Michigan's historic Right to Work fight, to the opening of MSU's world-renowned Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum. She also traveled to San Jose, California to cover mid-Michigan's Olympic gold medalist, Jordyn Wieber, at the Olympic trials.
Before coming to WILX, Lauren interned for KNBC's Investigative Unit, where she helped expose dangerous levels of lead in the drinking water at Los Angeles public schools. She also interned at Good Morning America and MTV in Los Angeles and, closer to home, at WJRT-TV in Flint. Lauren graduated magna cum laude from the University of Southern California with degrees in broadcast journalism and political science. She anchored and reported for USC's award-winning newscast, Annenberg TV News, where she covered the Democratic Presidential Debate, the Phil Spector murder trial and the Hollywood Writers Strike.
Lauren grew up in Birmingham, Michigan and couldn't be happier to call mid-Michigan home. She is a member of the Junior League of Lansing and is actively involved with the American Cancer Society, American Heart Association, Junior Achievement and Community Partners in Health. Lauren enjoys volunteering, traveling, playing tennis and spending time with family and friends.
