In addition to Lauren’s professional credentials described below, she brings her personal experience as a wife, mom, daughter, sister, friend, and pet lover to her work. She has experienced many of the highs and lows in all of these roles, including marriage, birth, loss, estrangement, Alzheimers, and supporting a loved one through addiction.
