Lauren hails from Kansas and is basically a Modern Day Dorothy - kidding, no yellow brick road jokes please. 

She has been involved with film and the arts for as long as she can remember and is happiest when juggling many creative hats. IKA is the perfect place for her to do just this - from production coordinating to casting she plays a role in it all. When not coordinating at IKA, you can always find her working on her next passion project(s) - most recently she danced with DanceWorks NYC, produced a short film: Like Glass, and she volunteers with community arts organizations such as Arts On Site + NYWIFT.
