Marketing and Public Engagement Specialist with Five Rivers MetroParks
Lauren is the Marketing and Public Engagement Specialist at Five Rivers MetroParks in Dayton, OH, also known as the Outdoor Adventure Capital of the Midwest. A conservation agency, MetroParks is home to 18 parks, more than 75 miles of natural surface trails and large portions paved trails that create the nation’s largest paved trail network.
With nearly 15 years of marketing and communications experience, Lauren specializes in social media management, digital marketing, content creation and public relations. She loves storytelling, especially those that inspire people to create connections with the outdoors that promote physical and mental wellness and the advancement of equity outdoors.
Rather than working in the private sector, Lauren has exclusively worked for non-profit organizations and government agencies with community-centric missions, where often one person is responsible for playing many roles.
She likes tall trees, woodland creatures and listens to punk while she trail runs.
