Lauren was born and raised in Concord, North Carolina. She attended Queens University of Charlotte for her undergraduate degree where she obtained a Bachelor of Music in Music Therapy. As part of the degree, she completed a music therapy internship in hospice and bereavement in Asheville, NC. Shortly after graduating she was employed by Levine Children’s Hospital in Charlotte, NC where she provided music therapy to a variety of patient populations, primarily focusing on patients with life limiting and life-threatening illness. In the course of her work, Lauren recognized a growing desire to become involved in the medical aspect of care and decided to pursue medical school. She obtained her prerequisite courses at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte and attended medical school at the University of New England College of Osteopathic Medicine in Maine. Lauren is thrilled to continue her education at Brown and from the start was drawn to its supportive culture as well as its dedication to advocacy and educational excellence. She hopes to expand on her interests in palliative and critical care medicine as well as care for underserved populations in her future practice. In her free time, Lauren enjoys making music, reading, baking, and spending as much time outdoors as possible.
