Lauren Braun grew up in Plano, Texas. She attended Texas A&M University in College Station, where she graduated Cum Laude with a degree in Allied Health in 2010. She then moved to Oklahoma to attend PA school at OU with the dream of someday working in pediatrics. She graduated from PA school in 2012 and began her career. She and her husband then moved back to Dallas to be closer to her family, where she continued working as a PA and fell in love with Richardson Pediatric Associates as a patient mom. 

Lauren and her husband, Brett, have four young children and live in the Canyon Creek neighborhood. Their son, Ford, was born with a rare and complex medical condition. Lauren’s journey with Ford further propelled her deep desire to pursue a position in pediatrics and help advocate for other children alongside their families. In her free time, Lauren loves running, water skiing, spending time with her family,  and traveling!
