I am deeply passionate about design
and people are my inspiration.
Dreamer and Doer.
Creating something new every day is a pleasure, but what’s more important to me is producing smart, purposeful work rooted in brand truths. My strengths lie in solving brand challenges by making complex information engaging and actionable. My approach prioritizes diversity and inclusion, putting people first to achieve optimal results. I’m also a mom, a lover of Latin dance, coffee, and wine appreciator.
Lauren is not only a skilled art director, her natural curiosity, drive to master new skills, openness to feedback, and 'yes, and' collaboration style make her a wonderfully flexible and effective problem-solver. She is also an enthusiastic and creative teacher.

Lauren is invested in making diverse audiences feel seen and respected - Media.Monks' Practical Guide to Inclusive Marketing would not have launched without Lauren. She conducted research, shouldered most of the design lift for the entire website, and worked closely with dev for this volunteer-fueled passion project.
It was a pleasure to have Lauren on my team.
Susan Parker
Executive/Group Creative Director
During her tenure as an Associate Creative Director for PayPal, Lauren has displayed a remarkable collaborative spirit enriched by her breezy personality. Lauren understands the challenges of building brand consistency in complex organizations. She helped us develop design tools that allowed our marketing teams to produce digital assets with superior discipline, efficiency and taste. Lauren’s expertise in design systems (and her passion for Figma) made her an esteemed creative partner at PayPal, and I look forward working with her again.
Jean-Baptiste Vielle
Senior Manager, Brand & Creative at PayPal
Working with Lauren, was a highlight of my time in leadership at Media.Monks. Lauren exhibits all the hallmarks of crafting and selling a new concept to various levels of leadership within a company.

In my time working with Lauren, she drove the UX, branding and visual designs of notably PayPal as well as our DEI initiative, which was a focus area of growth within the company. Lauren was my design partner in these initiatives. She worked with my engineering teams to make sure they understood the vision she was able to craft, and adjusted her concepts to fit the strengths of the teams that would make her designs come to life.

Lauren is an incredible creative partner and beloved by our PayPal clients. She is a gifted ACD: an incredible mentor to junior designers, adept at navigating complex creative challenges, and continually thinking "outside of the box." No matter how simple or complex the project, internal or external, her standard for creative is always exceedingly high and she maintains a focus on delivering an exceptional user experience. She's quick to take the lead when new branding, documentation, or strategic projects arise. Partnering with her creatively on the PayPal Retention squad has been one of the best collaborations of my career.
Liz Robinson
Associate Creative Director, Media.Monks
Lauren is one of those rare art directors who truly listens to the needs of the client and "get's it" quickly. Apart from being very creative, she is a strong strategic thinker and brand expert. I was particularly impressed how quickly she could take input during the rebranding of our company and turn around iterations that were outstanding.
Michael Manzagol
CEO Coach + Team Effectiveness Expert, Global Reach Leadership
Lauren was instrumental in the success of our company, serving as art director during the five years of our fastest growth. She's super passionate about the art and craft of design and is an incredibly creative designer. She also has an uncanny ability to deliver high-caliber work, regardless of the time constraints and complexities that went along with serving our Fortune 500 clients.
