Lauri, born and raised in East Brunswick, was an “MVP” of the EBHS gymnastics team and a 4-year letter winner for Rutgers Gymnastics. A Seton Hall Law graduate, Lauri is a partner at Kelley Drye & Warren LLP, a member of her firm’s executive committee, and is a nationally recognized marketing and advertising litigator. Lauri appears regularly as a legal commentator on national television, but she is most famous for being the sister of Michelle Herbert Cittadino, the daughter of retired East Brunswick teacher Howard Herbert, the mom to Charlie Mazzuchetti (4th grade, Memorial School) and the proud aunt of recent EBHS grads Jake and Justin Cittadino, and future EBHS superstars, Joseph and Jayden Cittadino. Lauri has agreed to dance in place of her sister Michelle, who is on the “injured reserve list” due to an unanticipated surgery.
Lauri's professional dance partner is Nikola Palivoda.
