She spent her childhood in Buckland, where she also received her education from Buckland-Shelburne Elementary and Mohawk Trail Regional High School. She received her bachelor’s degree in elementary education from Norwich University after attending Greenfield Community College and then going on to Norwich University.
Buckland-Shelburne Elementary School was where Lauri began her career as a teacher.

Throughout her time at school, Lauri was a talented athlete who excelled in a variety of sports, including softball, field hockey, and basketball.
She stayed true to her passion for athletics by attending all of her nieces’ and nephews’ sporting events, where she cheered them on.
