Meet Lauren

Lauren began her career in taxation with Smith Leonard in 2016 and serves individuals and both public and privately-held companies. After spending 3 years with the tax team, Lauren’s desire to expand her accounting experience led to a transition to the assurance side, where she will be serving many of the same clients in a different capacity.

Born and raised in Roanoke, VA, she now lives in High Point with her husband Joe, their daughter Navy, and their two fur babies Jack and Linus. She enjoys cooking, traveling, kayaking, hiking and time spent with family. Other hobbies include event planning and interior design.


  • Nearly 5 years of experience serving individuals and privately-held businesses
  • Industries served – manufacturing, distribution, service, retail, nonprofit and construction
  • Specialties include – corporate taxation, nonprofits, and closely-held businesses
