Lauren grew up moving every few years, due to her father’s career in the Coast Guard. In 1991 her family moved to Sonoma County and this has been her home ever since. In 1994 she married a Sonoma County native and together they raised a family here.
Lauren is passionate about volunteering and helping others. She has been involved in the Toys for Tots program and Sonoma County Secret Santa for many years. Lauren has worked on and off doing office work but has mostly been a stay-at-home mom. Her kids are both grown and are now leading their own lives. She enjoys taking trips with her husband, tending chickens, quilting, and spending time with friends and family.
