Lauren has an MBA with a concentration in Media Management and Communications. She spent part of her post-grad school career doing client services and data analysis at a data technology start-up, and prior to that she worked at NBCUniversal. But much of her learning these days comes from the lessons her young son, Jacob, teaches her. She is an avid home cook, and is always in search of a meal that he will happily eat. Before business school, Lauren spent nearly a decade working on the creative side of the entertainment industry as an actress and producer. She loves her new role as a mom, and is enjoying writing about everything she discovers along the way - from recipes, to financial tips, to navigating the emotional insanity that is motherhood. She runs the site one-stop-mom.com and enjoys yoga, running half marathons and eating delicious food. She currently lives in New York City with her husband, Adam, their son Jacob, and dog, Parker.
