Lauren is passionate about solving complex problems with minimalist design.
Hello! I'm a product designer, researcher and entrepreneur with 10 years experience. I'm currently designing Homebound's consumer product. Our team's mission is to overhaul the home building process and create a new experience around the customer. Many of our customers are natural disaster survivors who are rebuilding their homes.
Previously, I led the product design team at Guild Education. Guild took me back to Denver where I currently reside. While at Guild, I designed several of Guild's first version products and started their design system. Guild’s mission is to facilitate an affordable education for America’s 64 million working adults without a college degree.
Before Guild, I co-founded the venture-backed start-up, Glassbreakers, as Head of Product. Glassbreakers began as a women’s peer-to-peer mentoring network. The company later pivoted to making enterprise software to support Fortune 500 diversity, equity and inclusion teams as a core business function.
After graduate school, I moved from Boulder to San Francisco where I designed and built experiences at AKQA for the world's largest brands like Audi, Jordan & Activision. Throughout the years, I have also consulted with a number of start-ups across the US including: Havenly, Vivante Health, Hello Walden, Kip Health, Mosss, & Simple Habit.
