Lauren started her career in Broadcast news. She worked her way from an intern to newsroom manager. Throughout her eight years in television news, she wrote scripts, supervised reporters, photographers, and coordinated news coverage for local newscasts. Lauren’s next career move was to Public Relations and Marketing at R&R Partners. Lauren assisted with publicity for the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority, where she worked on some of the city’s largest projects including What Happens Here Stays Here and The World’s Largest Pool Party.
It was Lauren’s community involvement and volunteer efforts that turned into a political career as Campaign Manager for Aaron D. Ford, State Senate Candidate for Las Vegas District 11. With a successful campaign and Lauren’s expertise in media, she was then invited to work in the state capitol in Carson City as the Legislative Assistant to Senator Aaron D. Ford and Committee Manager for Senate Natural Resources. Lauren has worked for both Nevada’s 77th and 78th Legislative Session. Her responsibilities included day to day management of the Senate Democratic office.
