Lauren entered the working world with a degree in public relations from the University of Florida, but fell head-over-heels for web design when teaching herself in her spare time. She decided not too much longer after graduating to return to the world of academia to earn her Master’s in Mass Communications, Web Design and Online Communication from the University of Florida’s distance learning program. Her passion for the program was reflected by her commitment to it, as she was chosen to represent the program as a WDOC Online Ambassador before graduating with honors.
When she is not enthusiastically passing on her knowledge of web design to her students, Lauren works for Northwest Florida State College’s Strategic Communications team as the Web and Multimedia Coordinator. Aside from maintaining the existing website, she is also living out her professional dream of being lead developer for a brand new, strategically redesigned website.
In her spare time, Lauren enjoys riding her horses, gardening and working on home DIY projects.
