“I’m passionate about storytelling and strategic branding. I love helping companies build their social media presence, raise awareness about their brand, and get recognized for the amazing work they do.”
Lucky for us, Lauren’s passions just happen to align perfectly with her duties as our business development and marketing specialist. In this role, she oversees the planning and marketing of all our events, conferences, webinars, podcasts, and case studies, and manages our social media strategy and PR efforts.
Before joining the Benz team, Lauren worked in business development and sales for such tech companies as ProsperWorks, Oracle, and Pixalate, where she was known for her follow-through, honesty, and reliability–not to mention her knack for closing the deal.
A native of Orange County, Calif., Lauren received her B.A. in Public Relations from the University of Southern California. She currently resides in San Francisco, which she loves for its diversity—of people, food, and cultural offerings.
When the sun’s out, Lauren enjoys strolling through a park or ambling along the colorful streets of her North Beach neighborhood. When the fog rolls in, she’ll likely be at home reading (or rereading one of her favorite Harry Potter books), interior decorating, cooking for friends, hanging out with her cat Mochi, or listening to records (yes, the vinyl ones, of which she has a sizeable collection).
She’s a huge music fan who’s been known to travel around the country to see her favorite artists perform. As a nod to her mom’s origins, Lauren has also been known to put some serious effort into tracking down the best Vietnamese cuisine in whatever city she’s in.
