Lauren stared working for the International Accelerator Program immediately after her graduation from the University of South Carolina with a BA in Journalism and Mass Communications. She has found her passion working with international students and telling their unique story. 

International Experience

Columbia Favorites 

On Saturday mornings you can always find Lauren at the Soda City Farmer's Market. In the afternoon, she loves to relax outside at some of Columbia's local eateries like River Rat and Jake's on Divine.
