Lauren taught in Victoria for several years before returning to her hometown of Halifax, NS. She completed her Bachelor of Music and a Diploma in Chamber Music at Wilfrid Laurier University, followed by her Master of Music Performance at the University of Victoria in 2008. Lauren has performed with the Symphony Nova Scotia, Vancouver Island Symphony Orchestra, and Raven Baroque. She has attended Quartetfest 2006, Scotia Festival Of Music and the Tafelmusik Summer Baroque Institute as well as the National Academy Orchestra in 2010.

Lauren was a Suzuki kid herself, and when it was time to start teaching there was no question about what kind of teacher training to complete.
