Lauren has never been one to shy away from a challenge, so it is no surprise that she decided to start a new business just weeks after giving birth to her first child. She has been a trailblazer in many areas of her personal and professional life, bringing a dynamic blend of strategic vision, productive solutions, and great care for people to her role at Vestia.
Lauren started her career as a financial advisor in 2010. Clients appreciate her natural ability to translate complicated financial concepts into easy-to-understand illustrations that they can remember. Her expertise has led to her being a sought-after speaker for financial workshops throughout Tennessee, Alabama, Georgia, and the surrounding areas.
Although Lauren works with many types of specialty physicians, she has a niche expertise working with high-caliber female surgeons. Not only is she a strong advocate for equal pay for these women compared to their male counterparts, she is also passionate about empowering them to spend their time purposefully rather than tethered to their financial responsibilities. As an accomplished financial advisor, executive, and mother, Lauren is juggling work and home responsibilities right alongside many of her clients.
Lauren graduated from Vanderbilt University with a degree in Economics with a concentration in Financial Economics and was inducted into the International Economics Honor Society, Omicron Delta Epsilon. She completed further training in financial planning at Emory University and is a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™. She volunteers as a CFP® WIN (Women’s Initiative) Advocate to raise awareness about the profession for young women.
Lauren and her husband, Nick, have resided in Nashville for over 10 years. They both grew up in small towns and love that Nashville gives them all the excitement of a city without compromising the small-town values so important to them as they raise their two young daughters.
"I will always be able to work more or make more money, but I only get these years with my daughters once. So “wealth without regret” to me is having the luxury to choose how I spend my time; I have come to realize that how I spend my time is how I spend my life."
