Lauren joined the Lifeline staff in July 2014. Lauren attended the University of Montevallo and graduated with degrees in Psychology and Social Work in 2010. Before joining the Lifeline family, she was a therapeutic foster care counselor and supervisor at Youth Villages. This experience gave her a big heart for foster care and adoption.

She says that it is an honor to advocate for children around the world and feels privileged to walk families through their adoption journey.
