WRITING IS ESSENTIAL TO HUMAN CONNECTION.
I WRITE TO UNDERSTAND.
Who am I?
What do I care about?
Should you hire me?
Hi there--I'm Lauren. A recent Honors graduate from St. Edward's University in Austin, TX. I studied Writing and Rhetoric and have painted watercolor for several years. Born and raised in Texas, and eager to explore the world, I quickly left the breakfast tacos and Zilker Park hangouts to live in the United Kingdom for a semester. Not to be dramatic, but it was one of the best decisions I've ever made.
While taking courses at the University of Roehampton in south London, I fell in love with learning how to connect with people whose lives did not look like mine. I also worked alongside the Social Media team to offer an international perspective. Check out this video I was apart of for #WorldMentalHealthDay.
Currently, I work with TransPerfect as a Project Coordinator facilitating the life cycle of translation projects and managing translation teams.
In London, I explored Linguistics, specifically the foundations of Semantics and Pragmatics. Learning the intricacies of language from a scientific perspective, and combining it with creative writing has developed a unique approach to writing and research. Where linguistic specialists compile data to understand hypotheses, poets too rely on a form to access difficult emotions and process the unseen. I situate myself on both of these disciplines. See my writing page for some of my favorite projects.
I care about emotional wholeness, family, and justice. One of my undergraduate summers was spent interning for Women's Storybook Project of Texas, a local non-profit that connects incarcerated mothers to their children through literature.
Uh, absolutely. From Publishing, Grant Writing, and an array of professional writing portfolios, I'm here to make sure your writing needs are concise, engaging, and of course--grammatically accurate.
