Lauren is from Montgomery, TX a small town about an hour north of Houston. She attended The University of Texas at Austin, where she was a member of Delta Gamma Sorority and studied retail merchandising. While she was in college, she started working at a bridal salon to try and make some money, and discovered that she not only loved working with all the beautiful dresses but that she had a knack for finding brides their perfect gown.
After college, Lauren moved back to Houston and started working for two bridal salons, where she was the marketing coordinator and bridal consultant. While she was in Houston she met Saundra Chung, the wholesale representative for Amsale, and Joy Kinder, the wholesale representative for Christos, at a trunk show. Lauren has always loved Amsale's designs, and when she decided to move to NYC she knew that she wanted to work for Amsale in her flagship salon. When Lauren first came to drop off her resume Debbye Walker, the store manager, wouldn't give her the time of day, but then she mentioned that she knew and had worked with Saundra and Joy and all of the sudden Debbye was interested. She quickly discovered that in New York it's all about who you know.
Lauren has now been a bridal consultant at Amsale for 1 year, and she couldn't feel luckier to get to work with such beautiful gowns and all the girls at Amsale, who have truly become some of her closest friends.
