Meet Lauren Brown
Describe your journey to Groundswell in two sentences.
I spent my early career as a digital producer exciting and delighting customers through big brand promises. I’ve since made the switch working with companies that leverage technology to find solutions for some of humanity’s macro problems.
What is a cause you are most motivated by and where can we learn more?
As a lover of the outdoors, I’ve become passionate about the effort to restore our California landscape with native plants. Native plants attract local birds, pollinators and other wildlife by providing diverse habitats and food sources. Stewardship and enhancing the resilience of local ecosystems is something I can appreciate first hand when I hike, camp or just take a walk through my neighborhood. Some of my favorite organizations include Theodore Payne Foundation and California Native Plant Society.
What makes you excited to show up to work on Monday morning?
I love to learn and am energized by the journey to gain empathy with both colleagues and customers. My natural curiosity piques when digging into a problem, seeking to understand the “why” and ultimately being able to connect the dots through to solutions.
Share something fun that most people don’t know about you.
I really like to read and am usually consuming books two at a time (audio book + kindle). My literary interests span a wide array of topics; memoirs, business, science fiction, historical fiction, YA and fantasy – to name a few. I particularly have enjoyed post-apocalyptic and dystopian novels these past few years despite living in what feels like a dystopian thriller.
