What she says

I love words and writing and thinking through the very best way to say something—in order to achieve something greater. I love truly effective communication, and seeing successful outcomes because of it. I strive to find the words that work, and weed out the ones that don’t to create a moving, targeted message.

What we say

Perceptive and quick, Lauren is ever-ready to add value to a project. Her friendly demeanor and willingness to help her teams make her a natural collaborator and a welcome contributor.

What she is inspired by

Sir Winston Churchill and other masters of smart, succinct writing. Lauren is also inspired by personal hobbies and activities—they build creative confidence and enrich the work she does at Wg.
