Lauren was born while her parents were on staff at Cookson Hills. She lived on campus and went to school at Cookson Hills Christian School until she was 13. For Lauren, Cookson Hills has always been home. Lauren began serving at Cookson Hills in 2017 as a Custodial Technician and soon added on the teaching role. Her typical workday starts off with preventative maintenance tasks, then teaching for 3 class periods, followed by an afternoon filled with leading a team of custodial student workers. She loves how her job is different every day and that she can utilize her organizational skills to make sure it all gets done. Lauren has a Bachelor of Science in Leisure Studies-Service Management from Oklahoma State University. Lauren is a hard-working, Wonder Woman, always on-the-go momma to Lily, David, and Rose. If you cannot find Lauren on campus, it’s probably because you didn’t look in the right spot… her “office” is all over campus. But, if Lauren isn’t on the clock, she’s probably making memories with her kids, mountain biking, hiking, running, camping, visiting farmer’s markets, reading, playing her guitar, watching movies, or visiting antique shops or renaissance festivals. When she’s feeling extra creative, she makes guitar string baskets.
