Lauren’s main role is to provide administrative support to the BC office. If members have any queries, she is their first point of contact and points them in the right direction.
Among other general office duties, Lauren is responsible for coordinating meetings with industry groups, assisting in the organization of member outreach activities and initiatives, and updating members via social media and email communications.
Lauren is from Australia, and her background is in radio. She spent three years as an on-air announcer, but has dabbled in the TV and film industry. She worked as a runner on several Australian TV shows and interned at Channel 7 in Sydney as a production assistant/researcher.
Lauren studied at Edith Cowan University in Perth, where she completed a Bachelor of Communications, majoring in broadcasting and journalism. She also holds a post-graduate broadcasting diploma at the West Australian Academy of Performing Arts.
Although she may not readily admit it, Lauren loves a good romance film. The 2015 movie Brooklyn is one of her favourite Canadian films, not just because of the romance, but because it’s partially set in beautiful Ireland.
