She began performing at age 12 through Pittsburgh's Act One Theater School, where she would start dating her now-husband Trey at the age of 13. She has performed across the country on national tours and numerous regional gigs since graduating from Pace. When not performing, Lara is a freelance casting assistant, theatrical animal handler, and baked goods enthusiast.
