As a young child, Lauren always had a lot of energy and wanted to flip around the house; she got her start in gymnastics in a tumbling class at the local YMCA.

Lauren missed out on most of the 2018-2019 season but came back to compete vault and beam as a level 10 at the Starlight Invitational in March where she won the vault title. Lauren began her 2019-2020 season at Christmas on the Chesapeake. Here, Lauren came in sixth on bars and in the all around.
