Lauren’s basketball career started in the Tampa area at Benito Middle School. She played with the Tampa Bay Inferno and Tampa Thunder through her high school seasons at Wharton, where she served as a two-year captain. After recovering from 3 knee surgeries, she continued her basketball journey at The University of Texas at Dallas before transferring to The University of Florida in 2018. Moving back to Tampa after graduating with a Bachelor’s in Advertising gave her the perfect opportunity to get involved with the sport again and help get the youth excited about every amazing thing basketball brings. She is currently a Personal Trainer at Crunch Fitness in Tampa Palms and is passionate about helping others find their best and happiest selves!
