Lauren has served as the Communications Coordinator at Pennington Park since early 2022, but has been a member since the very beginning! Lauren has her degree in marketing and logistics management from Central Michigan University. When she began her career, she worked as a logistics engineer for several years before being called into her most important ministry of being a mom. After having kids, she started taking lots of pictures of them (as all moms do!) and realized her love for photography. In addition to working for the church, Lauren is a photographer where she is passionate about using her business as a ministry and as a fun creative outlet.

In her free time, Lauren loves spending time with her husband, Nick, and her two kiddos, Emmy and Brooks. She also enjoys hiking the U.S. National Parks, boating, and the visiting the beautiful Mitten State where was born and raised! She is passionate about growing in her knowledge of God’s truths and sharing about God’s limitless love and grace through her story of coming to know the Lord.
