|Hi, I’m Lauren. I moved from North Dakota in 2017 and have loved making Montana my home. My chosen field is graphic art and design. Art makes me happy! I majored in Music Performance and Business Administration at the University of Mary in Bismarck, North Dakota. My master’s degree is in Management and Leadership from Western Governor’s University, and my certification in Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion from the University of South Florida. You could say I’m interested in many areas of business – whether it be marketing, design, or people. I’m a unique, colorful person and have learned to love that about myself. I have two kids, Koa (2.5) and Auli’i (1.5), and an amazing husband, Seanan, who works in IT at Billings Clinic. We have two dogs, Teddy and Mocha, and two cats, Mooshu and Mookie. Life is crazy, hectic, and wild, but I wouldn’t change a thing. I love meeting new people and am excited for the adventures and opportunities that NextGen will provide me.
