Copywriter / Social PR
Lauren; the reason why everything sounds good. A Midwest gal that grew up spending far too much time playing Oregon Trail, so after years of pretending she was heading West, she decided to do it for real. She’s always been fascinated by how people meet and has collected these stories in her mind. This interest of hers can be beneficial to clients, seeing that Lauren is driven by her genuine interest to get to know them and utilize that knowledge to create tangible evidence in the form of results.
Her guilty pleasures include maple donuts in excess and afternoon naps. Her weekends are filled with coffee shop-dwelling and thoughtful runs at Sunset Cliffs. Her life motto comes from a wise woman featured in Humans of New York who says, “If you force yourself to go outside, something wonderful always happens.”
