Bio

Over the course of my career Lauren has had the opportunity to serve in roles which provided her with a unique perspective - she have served as outside employment counsel, advising companies on best practices; Lauren have served as in-house counsel and HR executive; and has been the client of outside employment firms. Her background allows her to bring to the boardroom a unique perspective, balancing best practices with the business needs of a rapidly growing and expanding company. In Lauren’s current role she has taken a struggling HR department to one that is efficient, strategic and compliant, all in just a short amount of time. The areas that Human Resources touches - workforce planning and management, talent acquisition, performance management, employee relations, HRIS, benefits - are all areas that she has had hands-on experience with and understands the changing role of each of those areas in today's economy.
