Most people at Uptick grew up wanting to be something normal, like a veterinarian or a teacher. Then there’s Lauren. Given her choice, she would either become an evil witch or a troll living under a bridge—although to be honest, we’re hoping for some kind of combination of the two, because how cool would that be?
More realistically, Lauren also likes the idea of being a young adult book author and continuing to work as a content marketer. She’s a tremendously talented writer, especially when it comes to long-form content, and we’re thrilled to have her working with our content and SEO clients.
Lauren has always been a creative at heart, participating in ballet, jazz, and tap dance from preschool to middle school (wonder if she had high arches like Abby?). She also sang in the Birmingham Girls Choir throughout middle school and she has been a creative writer all her life. We’re not sure whether that writing focused mostly on trolls or witches; you’ll have to ask her next time you stop by her home under the bridge.
Lauren’s journey to marketing is a familiar one. She originally went to school to become a teacher, but ultimately decided against it. She currently attends UAB, where she switched her concentration from composition to professional writing, and plans to graduate this semester.
If Lauren's name seems familiar, it’s because it is. She is the offspring of Uptick’s VP of Business Development, Jerry Brown, and definitely inherited his quick-witted sense of humor. She’s a quirky jokester just like her dad and loves a good prank (who would've guessed that about one of Jerry’s kids?). To put it into perspective, Lauren is to April Ludgate from Parks and Recreation as W is to George Costanza from Seinfeld (iykyk).
Outside of work, she enjoys spending time with family and close friends, and changing her hair color often.
