WHO IS THIS CHICK?
Hi! I’m Lauren. I enjoy discovering Kansas City one workout a time. While I belong to Blue Bike Fitness, I also like to explore my city and discover different neighborhoods and cultures while taking workout classes and pursuing a life of fitness.
After losing a little over 100 lbs in five years, I’ve become a huge fan of exercise. Like any human being who enjoys food and libations, it’s a constant struggle to keep the weight off. So I exercise to even things out.
Time is my currency and I spend it on experiences. I’m what you call a “busy body”. An extrovert. A woman-about-town. I once called myself a socialite but my boyfriend reminded me I have to have money to do that. I’m always going somewhere, having fun adventures and I rarely have an evening of quiet.
WHAT I DO
I write about entrepreneurship in the pursuit of growing entrepreneurial ecosystems one community at a time. This means I do a lot of ghost writing, content creation and social media. So forgive me if my writing is/isn’t AP Style. I can’t help it.
I also own my personal assistant business called KC Assistant where I help business owners and entrepreneurs with everything from client relations to accountability partnership. If you ever need a workout partner to push you, attend classes with you and hold you accountable you can hire me.
MORE ABOUT ME
I organize the Kansas City Dog Club, a social club for dogs and humans, with my boyfriend, Travis. We go on weekly walks, hikes, attend charity 5k’s and drink Sangria on the patio (that’s my idea).
I have a hairless, one-eyed Chinese Crested dog named Bowie and he is my furbaby in every sense of the made-up word.
I also volunteer for Wayside Waifs Humane Society (where I adopted Bowie) and Spay & Neuter Kansas City. I’m also a guest DJ and occasional street photographer for The Bridge 90.9, a local noncommercial radio station.
