She likes spending time outdoors and cooking, except when she’s on a hungry-kid deadline…argh!

Lauren loves reading anything and everything she can get her hands on and wishes there was more to read on cereal boxes like when she was a kid!

Lauren especially loves books and believes children’s books are one of the most powerful ways to connect with children.

Lauren developed the concept of baby + me while waiting for her youngest child to be born.
