Lauren was injured 3 weeks after her 19th birthday in an ironic diving accident.
Having been a competitive swimmer since age six, she instinctively performed a racing type of dive; straight out & streamlined. Unfortunately, Lauren struck what we believe was the opposite side of the pool and fractured not one, but three cervical vertebrae. The middle one exploded into a burst fracture and further damaged her spinal column.

Enjoy this short 5 min video Lauren made showing her Artistic Endeavors (2020-2021).
Even COVID couldn't keep this girl down!
Photo shoot on 3rd floor without an elevator NO PROBLEM! We hired 2 of her hulky trainers to bump her up & down the stairs before & after the shoot. #muscle4hirecheck
When Lauren read for a small part for the Indy movie, Interabled, the producer changed the script for her to be the LEAD!
She was then nominated for BEST ACTRESS in the NY/LI Film Festival - such an honor!
Let's keep the ABILITY in dis-ABILITY!!!

WOW, just WOW!
In a crazy Covid pandemic, Lauren was casted in the leading female role in an Indi Movie entitled; INTERABLED. She acts as well as sings two original songs written for her role. An endearing story about finding oneself and also dating someone who is "differently" abled.
Check out a sneak peak on the trailer in the YouTube link below.

Lauren you are a beautiful person. I stumbled upon you page today, since I met a man that was also injured in a diving accident. ( honesty, I never knew how common this was). As we all count our blessings everyday, I will include you in my prayers for healing. You are an inspiration, stay strong in heart & mind. Much love. G.
