Hello Everyone! My name is Lauren and I am excited to introduce myself.  I was born and raised right here in Aptos. I have lived many different places but came back home to Santa Cruz to raise my family. I love the beautiful place we call home! I am an avid hiker/backpacker, parent of two school aged kiddos and love wandering the creek right behind MCSC. I enjoy working with seniors as my early childhood included being constantly around my great grandma Ruth and her neighbors at a retirement community here in town.  I’ve worked as an administrator at a retirement community up in Eugene, Oregon and have many years of administrative experience. What attracted me to work here at MCSC was the desire to integrate my skills to a group of seniors who are actively supporting our community by providing fun things to do and who harness a sense of belonging for all who come through the doors. Please come say hi to me next time you’re in the building!
