Danna Saenz

VP of Operations

6She’s originally from Bogotá, Colombia, but Danna’s life has had a taste for variety. She’s lived up and down Florida’s eastern coast and even spending time residing in Guaynabo, Puerto Rico. These experiences drive her to seek out a career bursting with travel and excitement, but most importantly creative fulfillment. Now a junior and Ad/PR and Writing and Rhetoric double major, she’s found a passion for self-expression through the written word. And yoga. You’re guaranteed to find her at the RWC’s power yoga on Sundays.

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.

With a passion for art, ever since she was a little girl, and a love (maybe a little too much love) for planning and organization, Advertising seemed to come naturally to her.
