Lauren was born and raised in Perry, GA but has called Athens home since she was an undergraduate student studying Human Development and Family Science. After graduating from UGA in 2013, Lauren worked for the UGA Wesley Foundation for three years and quickly realized she loved Athens too much to ever leave. Lauren serves as an academic advisor for students studying Exercise and Sport Science and Sport Management. She LOVES helping students pursue their dreams! In her spare time, she can be found drinking a lot of coffee, reading, and asking people what their Enneagram number is. Lauren loves to spend time with students and invest in their lives!
