With over 19 years experience in the hospitality industry, Lauren joined the Mazzone Hospitality team in 1996, when Angelo took over the food & beverage operations at the Hall of Springs in Saratoga.
While completing her Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education at the College of St. Rose, she quickly moved up the ranks in roles such as Banquet Wait-staff, Banquet Captain and Banquet Manager of the Hall of Springs & Off-Premise Events. In 2002 Lauren helped create & implement a training program for all Mazzone Hospitality properties & staff, as the Director of Training & Hiring.
She eventually moved into sales at The Desmond Hotel in Albany and The Saratoga Hilton where she specialized in both Weddings & Corporate Events.
In August 2008, Lauren returned to Mazzone Hospitality as Director of Sales at Saratoga National Golf Club. A native of Saratoga Springs, it was a perfect fit to return to her roots with the Mazzone Family.
Laura comes to Mazzone Hospitality with a love for Upstate NY and a desire to build businesses and client experiences. Born and raised a "Saratogian" she spent a lot of time as a kid at Romano's in Clifton Park, a restaurant operated by her grandparents. Being a true Italian, food has forever been a staple of both her life and family!
Originally attending Siena College for a degree in English Education, the idea of entering business and marketing constantly resurfaced, driven by Laura's incredible opportunities to travel all over Europe and the U.S. with her brother, an international basketball player, as well as her mother a pharmaceutical researcher. After seeing and experiencing hospitality on so many levels, she was hooked on creating unique experiences guests love in state-of-the-art venues, all while sharing a passion for diverse and creative cuisine!
She launched her career in hospitality at the Pavilion Grand Hotel in Saratoga where she spent 3 years putting together incredible events and working with upscale clients. Photographer, David Bigler then called upon her to help him build a new arm of his business. With experience under her belt, she launched her own marketing company in January 2020 “Communicate Differently” which she still manages today. She is excited to build all-inclusive experiences that engage more senses in different ways for Mazzone Hospitality.
Before working for Mazzone, Laura was no stranger to PRIME Saratoga National. She also loves The Adelphi and The Red Salt Room by David Burke at the Garden City Hotel. One of her favorite foods is a family classic - Chicken Carmella, a delicious combination of Roasted Chicken, Penne Pasta, Peas and Prosciutto.
When not at work she is almost always with her dogs and horses, either riding or at the track! Join us in welcoming Laura to the Mazzone Hospitality Team!
