Lauren was born and raised in southern California, and attended California State University, San Bernardino – where she received her Bachelor of Science degree. After using her degree as a full-time nutrition writer for one year, she decided to pursue her childhood dream of attending law school. She spent her first year of law school in Jacksonville, Florida, but soon realized she is a California girl at heart. Now attending Loyola Law School, Lauren has interests in animal law, entertainment law, and corporate law. Lauren still runs several nutrition-related blogs, but is becoming more focused on immersing herself in legal writing. Lauren enjoys all types of writing (from technical to confessional poetry), traveling, and is an avid boxer. While she gained some legal experience in personal injury law during her time in Florida, Lauren hopes to some day work for a large corporate law firm with an international presence.
