Lauren, a true Michigan native from Plymouth, has immersed herself in the event industry since her teenage years. With a natural inclination for organization and detail, she's always been a planner at heart. After earning her degree in psychology, Lauren pursued her passion further by taking classes at the New York Institute of Art and Design for event and wedding planning. This paved the way for her dream journey of founding Detroit Social Co. Over the span of 16 years, Lauren has honed her expertise, mastering the intricacies of event planning. Her creative mind is ever-active, always contemplating how to transform a space. With genuine love for the industry, Lauren pours her heart into everything she does. 
When not immersed in planning, you'll find her enjoying reading, traveling, or savoring a charcuterie board with a glass of red wine!
