Lauren grew up in a small town south of Milwaukee and 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. Like any dog lover, she has two furry friends, Pal and Kona. In her free time, you can find her water skiing, kayaking, hiking, cooking, and playing disc golf with her husband!
