Lauren began her recovery in December 2013 and began her career in the treatment industry in 2014 as a recovery advocate at a facility in the Texas Hill Country.  Since then, she has gained experience in Admissions, Counseling and Utilization Review.  She has been blessed to work with men and women from all walks of life and watch many of them recover. Lauren graduated with her Bachelor of Arts degree from St. Edward’s University in 2010 and acquired her LCDC-I in October 2016.  Today, Lauren enjoys staying active, singing and playing her guitar and spending time with the family she almost lost during her addiction. She currently lives in Austin, TX with her dogs and her two best friends: her husband, Jon and their son, August.
