Hi there! I’m Lauren, a social media strategist and OG style blogger.

I'm a woman of many hats: Wife, Mom of 3, Dog Lover, Scientist, and the Queen of Dresses. My true passion is to help other creators and brands find their real, authentic energy.


I was once working in healthcare in Dallas, TX. It felt like a dream career. Until it... wasn't. 

After graduating in healthcare and landing my first job, I thought I had made it. I was finally working in healthcare. After a little bit of experience in my field though, I realized I was missing the creative side of my life. Over the last 10 years, I have worked in healthcare and been able to have a career in content creation, style blogging, and video creation. My journey in this realm has been documented over on my lifestyle website, Lauren Virginia Co. Then enter Covid. As I worked tirelessly trying to help save lives during the pandemic, I realized that I was putting too much energy into something that wasn't bringing me joy. I decided to take a leap of faith and take on my real passion full time; content creation. It feels like a dream that I get to wake up every day and create as well as educate others on how to create and build authentic brands! 

I finally found my purpose; helping brands and creators show up on social media authentically.

What started as a side hustle and a creative outlet, turned into my true passion and "why" in what I work for. Social Media lacks real-ness and authentic discussions, and I am determined to bring that back! I went from having just a fun activity all to myself while I navigated mom life and working in healthcare, to realizing that I'm good at authentic social media, and I can help others navigate the space too.

Whether you're a brand wanting to show up authentically online, or a creator wanting to know what works and what doesn't on your account; I've got you. I spend a lot of time (ok...too much time) studying and interacting on social media and with short form video; and I know what works. Let's create some real, authentic, energy together!
