As a native and long time resident of Morganton, Lauren has developed a unique perspective of the foothills. Being part of a family that spans back generations in Burke County, Lauren has had the rare opportunity to see the area grow from a sleepy little borough to one with a thriving economy and vibrant cultural and educational communities. Lauren graduated from Catawba Valley Community College in 2012 as a Registered Dental Hygienist and briefly relocated to Lake Norman, NC to pursue her career. After a few years working for a small family practice in Mooresville, NC, Lauren decided to follow her family’s entrepreneurial heritage and obtained her real estate license. Her business philosophy is to treat everyone she serves with respect, honesty and appreciation. Lauren and her high-school sweetheart, William, were recently engaged and plan to be married next fall. Lauren is a long-time member of The Rising Church in Morganton. She also enjoys spending her free time hiking, weight-lifting, cooking, visiting with family, and snuggling her 5-pound Pomeranian Peaches.
