She was named Best Sports Anchor by the Alabama Associated Press in 2014 and 2015, and she won an ABBY for Sports Anchor of the Year in 2013.
She is a native to Roanoke, Virginia where she spent most of her childhood devoted to the sport of gymnastics. She earned a four-year gymnastics scholarship to Rutgers University where she graduated with a Communications degree in 2006.
She has worked at various television stations and networks including CNBC, WTAP, and her hometown station WDBJ7. While sports is her passion, she has also developed another passion that has led her to join the movement at the Addiction Prevention Coalition. In 2003 while a freshman in college, Lauren unexpectedly lost both of her parents to prescription drug overdoses within hours of each other. Over the years, she has become very active in spreading awareness about the dangers of addiction and the devastation it can cause for the addict, their loved ones, and the community.
Lauren is blessed to have the love and support of her brother Allen Sisler as well as her aunt and uncle, Linda and Mike Rorrer, who have played an extraordinary role in Lauren's growth and success.
