After graduating from the pre-pharmacy program at Oregon State University, Lauren realized she wasn’t particularly passionate about the science jobs she had studied for years. As a natural extravert with customer service experience and a contagious smile, she decided to try out a more people-focused career in the property management industry. She has now found a career path that's a perfect fit with a company that wants to help her grow.
Lauren begins each day by opening the leasing office, preparing the “Creative Suite”—model apartment—and joining the morning huddle with her team. After that, things get busy. Lauren’s day is filled with a variety of responsibilities, like talking with Neighbors on the phone, touring future Neighbors around the Neighborhood, reviewing apartment rental agreements, responding to social media posts, and occasionally taking time to breathe.
