Lauren decided to enter the long-term care field when she began working as a Personal Care Assistant in high school. She graduated from the University of Minnesota – Morris with a degree in Biology in 2016. Shortly after this, Lauren began to pursue a Masters in Healthcare Administration, which she earned in December 2020. She started her career with Monarch Healthcare Management in April 2020. She worked as the Admissions Director for two metro facilities before transitioning into an internship role. She is thrilled to be part of Meeker Manor’s strong leadership team and looks forward to ensuring that all residents continue to receive the highest quality of care.
When in 1st grade I was asked what I wanted to be when I grow up my response was to be a nurse.
Here I am 33 years later do what I do best in another leadership role, in Long Term Care. I want to inspire my team as a leader, like so many of my colleges have in my past. I did have the opportunity to retire 8 years ago, since that time I was an Independent Consultant and/or Interim DON to assist in building that needed assist. Living in a 5th wheel we called home in the summers brought a lot opportunity to see how much I could make a difference. Family is the high light of my life, blessed with a blended family, grandkids, and great grandkids.
