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

If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more, and become more, you are a leader who is helping others advance toward their personal goals with your experience.

They use to, but then the enemy attacked me through love ones, but still continues to use me to give others hope, to help and give, to warn and educate; but mainly to love and encourage others. Sadly the Devil will come against you, but God stands with you. Thank you Lord.

Aren’t very many LEADERS anymore

Women can be so powerful when they join forces, rather than seeing other women as competition or a threat to you it's so important to realize that we all have common goals, are all equal and all deserve each other's support. ... See MoreSee Less

Embrace who you are as a female leader, not who you think you’re supposed to be. I used to try and fit the perfect persona that so many corporate women embody but when it comes down to it, that’s just not me. Show up as yourself, even in the workplace. ... See MoreSee Less

Need tips on balancing work and being a mom? I got you.

It’s so important to “leave work at work”. When you get home, really be present with your kids. Take 5 deep breaths, and be grateful for that time.

This week's self care tips...

1. Drink water first thing in the morning. This energizes you and prepares you for a healthier day.
2. Take some time to decompress. Whether it’s YouTube, meditation, or a short drive, just 5 minutes can really change the trajectory of your day.
3. Confront your negativity on paper. Get everything out in the open.

Please, mothers, don’t try to make life look easy! Social media often portrays this perfect life when, in reality, being a mom is really hard. I’m not saying you need to post every tough night but try not to pretend for yourself and for those around you. ... See MoreSee Less
