About Me

Hey there! I'm Lauren (or Ren for short), a seasoned User Experience Strategy Leader with a passion for crafting impactful design solutions. Born and raised in Northern New Jersey, I've called Atlanta, GA home for quite some time now. Here, I've embraced the city's culture, especially its diverse culinary landscape, all while nurturing my passion for design.

My design journey began with a B.A. in Communication from Rutgers University, followed by specialized training in Interaction Design at The Creative Circus. Since then, I've embarked on a diverse range of roles, honing my skills and expertise across the UX spectrum.

When I'm not immersed in UX strategy and design, you'll likely find me indulging in my love for food, travel, and hiking. I like to learn through exploration, having ventured through 8 countries and 39 states. Each journey leaves me with a newfound appreciation for diversity and the rich tapestry of human experiences.

In my professional endeavors, I've led transformative initiatives, such as spearheading a platform transformation at Florence Healthcare in collaboration with Product Management, which quickly became the company's number one priority. From organizing collaborative workshops to crafting user-centric designs, I'm committed to driving meaningful change and enhancing user experiences.

But my passions extend beyond design and exploration. I proudly mentor emerging designers at the American Institute of Graphic Artists (AIGA) Atlanta Chapter, where I contribute my expertise and insights to foster growth and development within our dynamic creative community. Additionally, I've been an engaged member of Ladies that UX Atlanta for the past decade, further enriching our industry through collaboration and mentorship.

I'm always on the lookout for exciting opportunities to collaborate and innovate in the world of UX design. Please reach out below if you would like to connect.
