In her spare time, she’s a goofy-footing snow boarder — another adjective we had to look up.
Lauren never, ever, EVER lets her kids win at sports. And she uses that same energy, drive and focus – along with a healthy dose of fun and compassion – to help real estate agents and staff learn about cutting-edge tools they can use to build success. Lauren’s wide-ranging business and marketing expertise is no accident: she owned her own marketing agency for over a decade. When she’s not helping The Studio or beating her kids at sports, you can probably find Lauren with a paintbrush in her hand. She loves to draw and is currently working on a children’s book.
