Born and bred in Virginia — one part fun-witted, one part sassy and all parts entertainer. From childhood, Lauren was a showstopper. As early as four, her weapon of choice was the microphone, which was the start of a fabulous relationship for the two.
Throughout her formative years, LB accumulated more tiaras than knee-scrapes. Her passion for entertaining led her to win the title of Miss Virginia Teen USA 2002. While her peers got their driver’s licenses, she landed the cover of Pageantry magazine. This was the appetizer for her 2007 Miss Virginia USA title. Her hometown rooted her on as she finished 6th at the nationally televised Miss USA pageant. As the roller-coaster year came to a close, Lauren hosted her first Miss Virginia USA show, televised live to thousands of viewers. Reading her first teleprompter, she felt right at home, with her trusted microphone in hand.
