She also writes for the JED Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to preventing suicide and protecting mental health in teens and young adults.

At 28, Lauren became a live-in caregiver for her grandmother the weekend before the country shut down due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In light of these experiences, she remains deeply committed to supporting older adults and their families. Lauren is passionate about meeting readers where they are and brings an intersectional lens to her work. She’s committed to spotlighting inequity, researching solutions to address systemic barriers that prevent many from leading healthy and safe lives, and building a more compassionate and supportive community for all. When she’s not writing or reading, you can find her trying to meditate more often, weightlifting, trying out new recipes, or walking in the woods with her partner and friends.
