Lauren was born and raised in Perry, GA but has called Athens home for the last six years. After graduating from UGA in 2013, Lauren worked for a UGA campus-based non-profit for three years. She then spent a very brief nine-month period living and working in Atlanta before realizing there really is no greater place to call home than Athens. Lauren's main role with the College of Education is to recruit for the college and welcome students to their new homes in Adherhold Hall or the Ramsey Center! In her spare time, she is interested in helping people discover their passions and callings in life, completing her Master's degree, and connecting with people over a really good meal. Lauren loves to spend time with students and invest in their lives!
