The woman behind Direct My Day Charleston
A hard working woman who has always had a passion for helping others, Lauren has dedicated most of her professional life as an educator and basketball coach. These experiences, no matter how big or small, have instilled beliefs and practices that play an important role into getting the most out of everyday.
After getting married to her husband [Tyler] in December of 2016, Lauren's passion for helping others was reignited, "As a young girl, I always knew what I wanted to do, as I got older that passion faded. God brought a new season for me in my life to help people in a new light. To help with the happiest day of their life".
She created “Direct My Day” to ensure that all future couples would not have to worry, stress or fear that something may go wrong on their special day, and Direct My Day Charleston was launched in September of 2017. Helping couples all over the low country has given Lauren even more inspiration and ideas for the future of Direct My Day, and for future special days!
When Lauren is not helping with wedding coordination, she can be found at he gym, at the Venue she manages (Ion Chapel), or working on new projects!
She loves her dogs, the beach, and working out.
