Lauren loves to come up with out of the box solutions fueled by large amounts of caffeine.
Role at Wired Impact
Lauren is Wired Impact’s Associate Digital Marketer. She collaborates with the rest of the Wired Impact team to help nonprofits create websites and move their online marketing efforts forward. Seeing the effects of strategic marketing processes that generate impactful results is one of the most rewarding aspects of her work.
Why She Loves This Work
Working with nonprofits is in Lauren’s blood. Both of her parents started their own nonprofits, so Lauren spent much of her childhood volunteering, working events, engaging with community members, and seeing first hand what it’s like to start and run a nonprofit organization. After witnessing many of the pain points experienced not only in starting your own business, but in starting your own nonprofit, Lauren was inspired by the work that Wired Impact does and was eager to get involved.
Her Path to Nonprofit Web Work
Lauren studied Marketing at the University of Denver and developed a passion for learning how companies manage and market their brand to users and customers. She previously worked as a marketing intern at an advertising agency and a real estate firm. While she learned a lot about digital marketing through these positions, she felt that something was missing. Lauren’s drive to create social change and form a connection to her surrounding communities ultimately led her to Wired Impact.
Outside of Work
Lauren participates and fundraises for Pedal the Cause, a nonprofit that funds cancer research. She’s also passionate about wildlife conservation and is involved in various fundraisers and advocacy campaigns supporting conservation efforts.
Lauren lives in Denver, Colorado, and enjoys mountain biking and exploring all that the backcountry has to offer. In the wintertime, she often heads up to the mountains with her friends for an epic day of skiing. She also loves spending time with family, eating copious amounts of sushi, running, and walking her beloved black Labrador Retriever, Earl.
