Her biggest accomplishment came during her tenure at THV 11 in Little Rock when one of her newscasts was selected as a 2015 nominee for the Mid-America Emmy Awards. Lauren transitioned to PR in 2020, where she began curating eye-catching headlines to spark the interest of journalists and wrote captivating content for social media that caused people to stop scrolling and engage! In 2021, the Birmingham Business Journal recognized Lauren as a NextGen Honoree for her contributions to her company and role in her industry. In 2022, Lauren was a recipient of UAB’s Top 25 Excellence in Business award. In 2023, she established The Serenity Agency, which is a public relations and event planning agency.
