Lauren joins CivitasNow as our new Field Marketing Manager. You'll see her on-site for our activations, managing the chaos and keeping a smile on her face. Lauren adds a ton of enthusiasm and experience to our mighty firm. Let's kick some ass.

1. Where did you attend college and what was your major?

I graduated from The Ohio State University in 2014 with a Bachelors in Strategic Communications. Go Bucks!

2. Where do you call home?

I call Columbus home, but was born and raised in Rhode Island.

To answer your questions- Yes, it’s an actual state. No, Quahog is not a real town and I don’t know Peter Griffin. I’m bummed I don’t have a New England accent, too. 

3. If you were given a free full-page ad in the newspaper and had to sell yourself in six words or less, how would the ad read?

Creative and curious. Humble, but hungry.

4. If you could be a character in any Netflix/HBO series, which series and character?

Monica from Friends. She’s Type A and competitive, but also incredibly caring and only wants the best for the people around her. 

5. What's the best piece of advice you were ever given and who gave it to you?

“The gift is each other”- Andy Teitelbaum, Head Coach, Ohio State Women’s Rowing

If you are familiar with the Steve Prefontaine quote, “to give anything less than your best is to sacrifice the gift”, you are already half way to understanding where i’m going with this.

During my junior year of college, Andy gathered my teammates (all 40+ of us) in the team room and told us to find a place to sit where we could see each other. He quoted Prefontaine and then posed a question- “what is the gift?” We thought about it and looked around for someone to break the silence- Talent? Hard work? Opportunity? All the wrong answers. The 'gift' is each other. The gift is the people you surround yourself with, the community you are part of and the incredible things that can be accomplished when you work as a team.     

6. What do you hope to accomplish alongside us?

From the back of a napkin to reality, I want work to help take off-the-wall ideas and bring them to life. I want to excite the communities we work with and leave everyone awe-inspired!
