About Lauren

Lauren-150x150I grew up in Fort McMurray, Alta., about 480 kilometres from Edmonton. Surrounded by dense boreal forest, Fort McMurray is a community with a bad rep it doesn’t necessarily deserve. To me, it is home, where my roots are, where I learned the value of hard work. But I wanted to see what else was out there, expand my horizons, so I put my hometown in my rear view and left for Regina, Saskatchewan.

“Why do you want to be a journalist?”

That’s the infamous question I get asked on a near-daily basis. I have always been a storyteller, writing short stories and poems from a young age. I used to want to be a novelist, but I learned I do not yet have the discipline or life experiences to write great fiction. But I took that love of storytelling and combined it with my love of people and interest in current events and a career in journalism only seemed natural.

As someone who doesn’t like being stuck behind a desk, I love the fast-paced nature of broadcast journalism.

Besides being a news junkie, I enjoy running and, so far, have completed two half-marathons. I enjoy fitness in general and am always looking for a new way of working up a sweat. 

I believe constantly challenging yourself is important.
