Lauren Schwartz

Director of Events

4Born and raised in Parkland, Florida, Lauren is not far from home. She was, however, far from knowing what she wanted to major in when heading to UCF. She recently found her passion and fell in love with Ad/PR and everything creative. Cooking shows are also her guilty pleasure, and she incorporates creativity into her cooking – especially Pad Thai. From graphic design, marketing, and advertising, Lauren is always open to learning something exciting, new, and maybe even tasty.
