Lauren is a native North Carolinian who approaches each new project with a smile and a comprehensive list of deadlines.
As the Production Manager, she oversees creative deliverables on each project, from budgets and scheduling to designer workload and vendor management. She serves as a bridge between the Creative and Accounts teams, enabling the departments to work together to produce high-impact solutions on-time and within budget. She is also responsible for on-site branding, interactive workshops, and immersive training experiences. Lauren never stops thinking about how to optimize processes, and she’s also our go-to copyeditor (and a firm believer in the Oxford comma).
Pre-Centrifuge, Lauren worked at an advertising and publishing company where she managed the design and production of engaging print publications for universities across the country. While there, she discovered a passion for creative project management, the importance of deadlines, and the nitty-gritty of publishing. This exposure to the world of higher education was a solid foundation for her work here at Centrifuge.
Life Outside of Centrifuge:
Lauren started taking ballet classes when she was 3 years old and continues to dance on a weekly basis. She loves being outside and can usually be found listening to the latest audiobook while out for a walk during her lunch break. Along with her husband, she enjoys traveling with friends, dressing up for Broadway shows, and striving to become multilingual.
