Lauren started her career at Paige Hendricks Public Relations Inc. in Fort Worth, Texas, after graduating with a Bachelor of Arts degree in business administration (with emphases in finance, marketing, and English Literature) from Rhodes College in Memphis, Tenn. At PHPR, she worked her way from intern to Vice President, departing the firm after 10 years to go in-house for one of her clients as Director of Public Relations.

After she left PHPR, Lauren continued to work with select companies and clients, and after almost five years, she felt that the time was right to launch Kwedar PR.

Lauren loves her hometown of Fort Worth, and she is proud of the businesses and non-profit organizations that are flourishing here. She has a long history of community service, and she is currently a member of the board of directors for two non-profit organizations: the Foundation for the Young Women's Leadership Academy of Fort Worth, and the First Tee of Fort Worth.
