When not writing, Laken can be found working as an assistant manager at Spirit Halloween, as a scare actress at a haunted trail, or as a ski instructor in the winter months. She enjoys volunteering as well as watching musicals.

In the future, Laken hopes to become a political journalist for a national news organization or to be a campaign commercial editor for politicians.
