Director of Project Management
You know those ‘big picture’ people who are also experts in orchestrating details? Meet Lauren. With nine years of agency experience, Lauren and her team excel at keeping the hundreds of agency projects on track, and on budget by making sure schedules are met and client expectations are satisfied. Lauren is truly the ‘calm in the storm’ as she works through the complexities of executing a wide range of big campaigns to complex websites to the smallest projects.
As master of the agency’s integrated project management system, Lauren leads a team of project managers equipped with the tools to project workloads, find efficiencies and measure the agency’s ability to meet client production goals. She uses her past experience in brand management and her advanced knowledge of our project management systems to constantly innovate, always looking for ways to improve efficiencies and productivity while keeping her eye on the big picture.
Before joining Stone Ward, Lauren honed her management expertise and calm, get-to-the-point approach working at L’Oreal USA in their Marketing Management Development Program, an accelerated development program, mentorship, and experience working with senior leadership through all aspects of marketing management. While there, Lauren worked on a number of L’Oreal brands including L’Oreal Paris, Garnier and SoftSheen-Carson.
When she’s not satisfying her need for coffee, you’ll find Lauren loving on Rosie, her rescue dog, reading, traveling to see her family and watching sports. She also finds time to give back to her community through her work with a local children’s reading program.

Favorite Book: The Glass Castle, Favorite Movie is You’ve Got Mail (who doesn’t miss AOL?) and my favorite music is constantly changing…but it’s usually not very cool!
A large diet coke followed by a tumbler of white wine, Buffalo Grill Cheese Dip, a medium-rare steak with a little sushi on the side and then finally polish it off with some mint chocolate chip ice cream.
