Lauren joined Newsy as a writer and anchor in spring 2016. After spending three years as a news anchor, multimedia journalist and newspaper reporter, she jumped at the opportunity to try something new in the journalism industry. Lauren has been a news junkie since she could formulate sentences. Originally from the northern suburbs of Chicago, Lauren is a proud graduate of the College of William and Mary in Williamsburg, Virginia (Go Tribe!). When not working, Lauren is probably catching up on the latest news, checking out her favorite design blogs, watching really bad but entertaining reality shows and spending time with her friends and family (which usually involves catching up over coffee or dinner, or cheering on Chicago sport teams).
