I’M LAUREN

Over the last 15 years, I have navigated the challenging waters being a high-achieving business woman  and single mother of three. I have served as general counsel of many companies.  I currently serve as Chief legal officer and data protection officer for Workhuman, a company leading the employee appreciation revolution.

Showing up with authenticity and owning everything that I am as a female leader, was the key to my success.

and you can do it too.

Strategic Leader.

Forbes Contributor.

Mother.

It doesn’t have to be lonely at the top. You have found an ally in me. Let’s create something together. It is time to elevate!

but it’s time to

stop

playing

nice.

We won’t see a more feminine approach represented in leadership until we as women dare to take inspired action. We must put real, tangible, action plans into place and make good decisions timely. We are not just dreamers, we are over-comers. The time is now!

It’s time to step into our true power, refuse to play small, and

Having it all,

owning it all
