Currently performing on Broadway in Disney's hit show Aladdin! Lauryn understudies 'Princess Jasmine' as well as several other roles in the award-winning production. As an original cast member with the show she has had the opportunity to perform on the 2014 Tony Awards, The View & Good Morning America. She, along with three of her colleagues were also featured on the cover of the July/August 2014 issue of Dance Magazine complete with a six page spread of their experiences dancing at Aladdin.

Before making her Broadway debut in Aladdin Lauryn traveled throughout the United States with numerous Broadway tours, they include 'West Side Story' (Maria u/s), 'A Chorus Line', 'The Addams Family', 'The Wizard of Oz', 'The Wedding Singer' and 'The Little Mermaid'.    

Lauryn's passion and commitment to the arts stems from her parent's love of Italian opera and classical music which was always playing on the stereo in their house. This inspired her to study voice with world renowned opera singers Shirley Love and Renata Scotto of the Metropolitan Opera while attending SUNY Purchase College where she received a BA in Drama Studies.  After performing at a vocal competition at The Grand Prospect Hall in Brooklyn, Lauryn received a scholarship to perform opera in Puglia, Italy where she performed at The Van Westerhout Theater in Mola di Bari. It was this trip that solidified Lauryn's pursuit of a career in performance. The following year she was invited to study and perform in the Tuscany Music Festival in Castelnuovo di Garfagnana. In 2004 Lauryn performed a solo concert of Italian opera arias on Costa Cruise Line with Mauro Bartolino, classical pianist from Milan, Italy. 

Lauryn is equally passionate about the arts as she is children's arts education. Throughout her high school and college career she was an ambassador with the Hugh O'Brian Youth Leadership Organziation. Lauryn continues to donate her time to numerous organizations such as St. Jude's Children Hospital, Susan G. Komen Cancer Research, Phyllis Newman's Women's Health Initiative and Broadway Cares Equity Fights AIDS. Lauryn was involved in a benefit production of the Broadway musical Next To Normal, supervised by writer, Tom Kitt and Broadway conductor Jason Lofreddo, both fellow Byram Hills High School alumni.  Lauryn portrayed the role of Diana, a woman struggling with bi-polar disorder and depression. This sold out performance not only raised $25,000 for the Armonk school district's arts program but also brought awareness and guidance to the Westchester community about mental illness. 

Lauryn is a proud member of Actors Equity and SAG-AFTRA
