Lauren volunteers as a firefighter and fire chaplain at Northern Wake Fire Department. Before moving to Raleigh, she has served as firefighter, EMT and Police Chaplain in Duplin/Pender County. As an ordained Baptist minister, she has a passion for serving first responders by building relationships and working alongside them, through both the good times, as well as the bad times. She is excited to be a part of the Peer Support team and has seen personally how beneficial it is to have someone there to listen and be a support through life’s trying times. When Lauren is not working or volunteering, she enjoys cheering for her Alma Mater Clemson Tiger Football team, running, and hiking in the mountains with her black lab mix Gus.
