Lauren grew up in the small town of Catlett, VA before moving to Blacksburg to attend Virginia Tech. She graduated with a Bachelors Degree in Hospitality & Tourism Management in 2018 and participated in multiple internships at resorts, country clubs, and hotels. Her passion for travel brought her to Punta Cana, Dominican Republic during her senior year, where she studied abroad and learned all about resort management. After graduation, she moved to Boston, MA where she worked for the past two years as a Food & Beverage Manager in the hotel industry. Laruen is so excited to be back in her home state of Virginia, residing in Arlington, and is looking forward to getting to know all of the Members at River Creek and creating a great Member experience for everyone!
