Client Success Manager
Lauren really can do it all. She came to us with a wealth of experience: from event planning, to wedding coordination, to working as a Barre instructor, to real estate—she's never been afraid to dive in headfirst! When she's not walking for endless miles with her husband and her two pups, you can find her behind the scenes at Here Comes The Guide beautifying venue profiles and welcoming any new tasks that are thrown her way. And the best part? She carries out every part of her life with a welcoming smile and a twinkle in her eye. She's a total dazzler and we are so grateful for the special light she brings!
Marital status: I married the best man I’ve ever met in May of 2019 in the garden of a historic home in downtown Lexington, Kentucky. It was small and low-key with only hors d’oeuvres because we spent our entire budget on a live jazz band (worth every penny). It also happened to be the day a monsoon swept across the country. When asked what my “rain plan” was, I replied “we get wet”. And we did. It was perfectly imperfect.
How I spend my free time: I love traveling, walking way too many miles a day to appease our two large dogs, any outdoor activity, catching up with old friends, and teaching an early morning Pure Barre class.
Films I never get sick of watching: Forrest Gump, Double Jeopardy, How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days, and The Sixth Sense.
Favorite quotes: “And He will be our peace…” Micah 5:5 and “Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t — you’re right.” —Henry Ford
Premarital advice: Prepare more for your marriage than you do for your wedding. As far as the wedding day goes, don’t allow anyone to influence your decisions. As someone who had worked in the wedding industry, I had a lot of pressure from everyone in my circle for my wedding day. But we just wanted small and simple and I’m so glad we did what worked best for us.
What people underestimate about me: Apparently I come off as really girly (which I totally am) but I grew up on a farm and there’s nothing I love more than driving the tractor, feeding the animals, and digging in the garden.
Childhood career choice: A vet or a teacher but neither would work because the sight of blood makes me pass out. I’m also not the most patient person. #workingonit
Guilty Pleasure: Politics! I find politics so interesting and love keeping up with what’s going on in the world. Also, being barefoot. Weird, I know, but if there is any opportunity to not wear shoes, I’m taking it. Ask my mom for childhood stories of me taking my shoes off at inopportune times. Comfort above all else!
What I love about my job: Absolutely everything. The women are amazing and the care they provide for their work, clients, and each other is genuine.
