Bio: Lauren comes to Green Bay from graduate school at Syracuse University after two years working for NFL Films. As a masters student, she covered the Syracuse Women’s Lacrosse team as a beat reporter, interned for the New York Post, and hosted the “Women’s Sports Update” for Orange TV Network. She spent her graduate capstone at WFRV, covering the Green Bay Packers 2022 Training Camp.

Before graduate school, Lauren spent two years as a production assistant and video editor for NFL Films near Philadelphia. She oversaw post-production of “NFL Films Presents,” pitched story ideas for HBO’s “Hard Knocks” and interviewed Seattle Seahawks players for NFL Top 100.

Lauren is a 2018 graduate from the University of Southern California and also interned for the Los Angeles Clippers, shot the t-shirt cannon for USC’s Athletic Department, and worked for The GIST, a female-founded sports media start-up.

Outside of work, Lauren can be found cooking penne alla vodka, singing along to a country song, or staying up to watch her West Coast team’s late-night start times. Lauren is excited to become a part of the Green Bay community and is always looking for exciting sports stories to cover.
