Lauren grew up in Virginia Beach and moved to San Francisco where she studied Industrial Design and Graphic Design at the Academy of Art University. Returning to her roots in Virginia has allowed her to be closer to family and start her own successful graphic design consultancy business, as well as join the CKG team.
Lauren is the director of all things creative at the CKG Foundation and has a passion for using her talents to have a positive impact on the world. Many of her freelance clients are local non-profits and local artists who seek to spread positivity, change through action, and create a better future for our world.
Outside of work, Lauren can be found running on the local trails along the James River, writing in a moleskin while sipping Blanchard's Dark as Dark roast, snipping rosemary from her garden, and training for her first Ironman with the SpeakUp Race team!
