Lauren grew up in a small town south of Milwaukee. She has always had a special place in her heart for our four legged friends. Every minute with her yellow lab, Max, is cherished as it took many years to convince her parents to get her a puppy. She attended the University of Wisconsin- La Crosse where she earned a Community Health Education Degree. After college, she moved to Eau Claire where she primarily worked with teenagers at the Boys & Girls Club helping them to gain the tools and skills they need to be successful. Lauren is excited to be back in Milwaukee and have the opportunity to combine her passion and love for animals with her career. In her free time you can find her on the water, playing tennis, or sipping on coffee.
