  • Chronic Illness and Disability


Lauren has always had a passion for writing and communications, from her first-grade writing circle to her high school newspaper. While in college studying public relations, she developed several chronic illnesses that inspired her to use her communications skills to help others like her. In 2021, she began creating explainers about living with chronic illness for Instagram. She has recently ventured into freelance journalism to bring the stories of chronically ill and disabled folks into the mainstream.


Lauren has a B.S. in Public Relations with a minor in Sociology.
