Growing up, Lauren’s dad taught her how to play tennis at the neighborhood court, and she has not put the racket down since. In college, Lauren captained the University of Arizona tennis team and played the #1 singles and doubles position, ranking among the top 20 in the NCAA. For a time, college tennis was the ultimate goal, but Lauren soon realized she would not be ready to put the racket down after graduation. Improving tremendously during her four years at Arizona, Lauren decided that going pro was a realistic decision. Today, she lives an trains in Arizona, pursuing her goal to succeed in professional tennis.

“I am extremely passionate about tennis and I love to compete,” Lauren says. “The amazing thing about this sport is that you’re competing with yourself. You will have good days and bad days but ultimately you are just trying to be the best version of yourself day in and day out.”
