She left for a mission trip after she graduated from college and ended up staying for 5 years! Lauren is a Family Support Specialist for our Healthy Families program, and she is a wonderful resource for many of our Spanish speaking families. Currently, Lauren has 20 families on her caseload. She makes weekly visits to their homes and encourages, guides and supports mothers on their journey of parenthood. In Lauren’s spare time she loves to play with her daughter (age 8) and be outdoors. She is an avid reader and values the time she spends with her family.
