Three interesting things about Lauren:

  • I love traveling domestically and internationally. My family has been to 49 states and I spent four months living in Florence, Italy!
  • I am a big dog lover. I have a yellow lab named Dolly who is an expert at hide and seek!
  • I was the youngest registered lobbyist in Iowa during the 2020 Legislative Session!

Why do you love Drake?

I love Drake because of the opportunities that come with the Drake experience! Drake students form many great professional relationships with faculty advisors, professors, peers, and professionals in the community starting their first semester. Drake’s alumni network is also very expansive and Drake alums are always willing to help Drake students!


What is your favorite thing to do in Des Moines?

I am obsessed with the Iowa Statehouse. It is so gorgeous! I love to picnic on the Capitol grounds and explore the inside of the building. I also thoroughly enjoy meeting political candidates on the campaign trail when they come to Des Moines!
