Lauren returned to Michigan Radio nearly a decade after her very first internship as a newsroom intern. In her role as Morning Edition producer, Lauren coordinates and edits interviews, writes news copy, and helps make Doug Tribou sound good on air.
Before returning to Michigan Radio, Lauren spent six years producing for PBS in Washington, DC. She has degrees in journalism and Spanish from Michigan State University. An Ann Arbor native, Lauren is happy to be back in the city where she was raised.
Outside of work she enjoys outdoor activities, sewing, and playing with her hound/lab mutt, Rufus.
