Lauren graduated with honors from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, where she obtained a Bachelor of Arts in Interior Design. While in school, Lauren was selected for the Design Excellence award as a top student in her class and was recognized by her professors and peers for exemplary performance. After interning at a commercial furniture dealer in her home state of Louisiana, Lauren decided to take the next step with her career and make the move to Texas to immerse herself in the thriving Austin design community.
A New Orleans native, Lauren feels the most creative when she is connected to her natural surroundings. Believing that everyone deserves good design, Lauren loves constantly challenging herself to approach things in a new and innovative way. As the direct assistant to Senior Designer, Nicki Pérez-Cerday, Lauren plays a significant role in the team’s overall success by providing hands-on support in many phases of the design process and hopes to continually build on her knowledge and experience to one day become a licensed interior designer herself.
In her free time, you can find Lauren carefully tending to her ‘plant babies’, volunteering in the local community, or adventuring the outdoors and restaurant scene with her partner Holden and pup Jet.
