Even though Lauren was not born in Philadelphia, she has lived there long enough to call it home. After graduating from Penn State University with a B.S. in Biology, Lauren moved to Philly to pursue a career in social service. While she loved the work she was doing, the meager pay required part-time positions to supplement her income, one of which resulted in a move to the for-profit sector. After almost six years working in real estate, Lauren moved into IT to work for s2s. She considers this one of the best things that has ever happened to her. Outside of work Lauren enjoys live music, opportunities to wear costumes and good times with friends and family.
