Lauren's Theme: Green, like $$$

 


A personal intro

I grew up in Farmington, CT and came to Boston in 2006 to attend Emmanuel College where I spent 3 years studying English Communications before accepting a full time job working with the YMCA of Greater Boston as the Director of Aquatics at two of their branches. I went back to school last year and will be starting my last semester this fall! I am so excited to be beginning this new career path and joining the team at SmashFly.  I currently live in Framingham with my ​fiance and our dog Murphy.

 

Favorite off-the-grid activity 

­­­When I'm not at work I really enjoy movies and books.  I also really like to cook and love any outdoor activities (especially the beach!).

 

Favorite drink

I love most seasonal fall drinks. My favorites are apple cider and pretty much any type of pumpkin flavored beer.

 

Favorite saying or slogan or quote

One of my favorite quotes is an excerpt from Walden by Henry David Thoreau - "I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived."  I love this quote because it reminds me of the 6+ years I worked at an overnight summer camp, which I absolutely loved, and it is a great reminder to be present and to live a less complicated life.

 

A little-known fact about Lauren

I won Best Sense of Humor along with two of my four siblings in our respective senior yearbooks in high school. 

 

Why Lauren elected to join SmashFly and how Lauren plans to assist in our mission

I chose to join the team at SmashFly because I was looking for an opportunity to begin a career in sales at a fast growing startup. During my search I was immediately interested in SmashFly because my biggest issue in my ​previous role was hiring and recruiting strong candidates. I have seen a real need for a company to utilize a recruitment marketing platform firsthand.

 

Lauren's favorite thing about Sales and the associated role

This will be my first time in a sales role but I am very excited to hit the ground running. I look forward to learning and growing with the company!
