Meet Lauren!! This smart and hardworking Laner is originally from Texas and now calls San Marcos home. She is currently enrolled as a doctoral student in the Anatomy Department at the University of Otago in New Zealand, but working on her PhD from home. She lives there in San Marcos with her partner, Christian. When she isn’t working on the Lane or studying she spends most of her free time writing and reading as well as rehearsing for a fabulous one-woman dark comedy, Bad Girls Upset by the Truth, which premieres in Austin this March. Her goal as a performer and writer is to find meaningful, entertaining, and relatable ways to address the tough stuff in life. And we LOVE sharing those journeys with her!
