Lauri and her two siblings, Tracy and Greg grew up in Boise. As a young girl Lauri enjoyed swimming competitions, horseback riding dancing in local Sottish celebrations and weekends at the family cabin in Donnely. During her teenage years Lauri worked for her father in his local dental practice.
While attending Boise High, she was the sports editor for the school annual and a member of the National Honor Society for Journalism. After graduating from Boise High, Lauri spent one semester in pre-med at the University of Idaho. She then moved back to Boise, where she attended one of the first Radiologic Technologists programs through Boise State University. After graduating from Boise State and becoming an RT, she started working at Mercy Medical Center in Nampa. This is where she met her future husband and soul Mate of 35 years Willie. He was the Local GE service representative. They met in one of the x-ray rooms that Lauri operated. During their Marriage Willie and Lauri raised five children and enjoyed many fun vacations together.
