Lauren has an Associates’s Degree in Applied Science from Lehigh Carbon Community College/Northampton Community College. She wakes up every day with the goal of helping those that are unable to help (or speak for!) themselves, a motivation that stemmed from watching her grandfather help any injured critter that appeared in their yard.  In her spare time, Lauren enjoys staying active, showering her kitty Claudio with attention, spending time with her family, and antiquing.
