A Dallas native, Lauren left Texas long enough to graduate from John Brown University with a B.A. in Communications and a minor in Spanish. She returned to Dallas to work at a marketing agency for 6 years in HR, operations, and recruiting. She loves a good laugh, attempting to snowboard, the lake, writing, and all things music. Contributing minimally to her weekly trivia team is pretty high up there too. She’s had the privilege of meeting weekly with a group of girls involved in For the Nations programs since her move back and is ecstatic about the opportunity to get to further serve the refugee community in her hometown.
