Lauren’s career has taken her throughout the country and across the world, getting her first break on the airwaves in Melbourne, Australia. The lure of the 2010 Vancouver Olympics brought her back home, where she worked as a videographer during the games. From there she worked her way up the ranks in radio and television news in central and northern B.C., Canada’s only border city, Lloydminster, and most recently held the reigns as a late night news anchor in Regina. One thing she won’t miss…prairie winters!
Along with graduating from SAIT Polytechnic’s broadcasting program, Lauren holds a Bachelor of Applied Science in Communications from Simon Fraser University.
In her spare time Lauren is an active swimmer, loves to travel every chance she gets and spends all the time she can with her dog, Nigel.
Lauren is thrilled to be a part of the experienced Global Okanagan news team.
