With a background in public relations and social media marketing, Lauren has always been a lover of telling great stories. For 6 years she worked alongside international brands including Nike, Airstream, and Chick-fil-A. Now, as a Communications Strategist and Photographer she has the opportunity to pursue two elements of storytelling in one business.
When she’s not in the office, Lauren can be found cooking, hosting friends, or exploring new cities. She lives in her college town, Athens, GA, with her husband, Chip, her son, Oliver, and their fur-baby, Sophie.
This last year has been busy for Lauren, to say the least. But, we both agree that’s just life. There will always be something.
Lauren shares about her day-to-day life and schedule: managing a business and running a household. “There is a lot of weight to bear on the day to day.”
She says releasing expectations she has for herself of what her life and day to day are going to look like gives her freedom. Even as someone who likes to do a lot of things, sometimes things can still be overwhelming.
“A lot of great things can also still be A LOT.”
But, even in those times, Lauren leans on this guiding light: “What He has done before, He will do again.”
Lauren recommends finding a creative outlet that fulfills you. It could be cooking, picking flowers, arranging bouquets, anything! “Find something for yourself that you feel really gifted in.”
