PARTNER, HEAD OF OPS & CULTURE

As Partner and Head of Ops & Culture, Lauren juggles many chainsaws at once. While her role at W&W has evolved since the company started, her ability to get s*** done with grace and intention has always been at the forefront of her day to day. Lauren has a passion for building an organization that takes care of it’s people while pushing against the industry’s operational norms .

A diverse background of photography and event production for the likes of Nike, Adidas, Motorola, The Lowline, Vogue and Vanity fair combined with navigating the choppy waters of restaurant ownership in NYC has set Lauren up to take on the most challenging situations with creativity and a level head.

Outside of W&W, you can find Lauren cooking up a four course dinner in her Rhode Island home or shredding the slopes on the snowiest mountain.
