Lauren joined our team early last year, and she’s been the source of delicious baked treats and great PPC ideas ever since. We’re so pleased to have her on the team, and are excited for you to get to know her better through our survey.

Where did you go to school?

I got my degree from the University of Oregon, but I along the way I studied at Portland State, PCC, Lyon 2 University, and Florida International University in Miami. I’m a fan of a/b testing schools!

What did you major in?

La Literature Française

Where are you from?

I grew up in Tualatin, Oregon. Some fun facts about my hometown is that it’s famous for the annual Crawfish Festival, the Pumpkin Regatta, and Bridgeport Village.

According to Wikipedia, Tualatin got its name from the Tualatin River, (who would have guessed), which is probably a Native American word meaning “lazy” or “sluggish.” Being slow and sluggish makes it the perfect river for first-time paddle boarders!

Another cool fact about Tualatin is that a skeleton of a mastodon (kind of like a wooly mammoth) was found during the construction of the Tualatin Fred Meyer’s. It’s now on display at the Tualatin Library.

Favorite PDX spot?

That’s a hard question. Powell’s books is always a favorite, Rimsky’s is great for a late night dessert or the rooftop of Society Hotel for a drink after work.

What do you like to do in your spare time?

I cook and bake a lot at home. I also go to the dog park with my pup, read, take classes, and work on side projects.

Favorite podcast (or media organization if you don’t have a show in particular)?

I don’t listen to many podcasts, but the most recent one I’ve listened to is S-Town.

Bucket list item.

See the Tour de France in France!

What’s your passion project?

I’m working on watercolor painting and CSS/HTML skills.

Why did you pick Mad Fish Digital?

I wanted to work for an honest, thoughtful marketing agency. Mad Fish truly cares about their employee’s well being and I’m in a place where I’m can learn something new every day.

I love listening to RnB, reggaeton, or indie/alternative when I work.

I can make soap.

If you have a pet, send us a picture of you them!

Silly jokes. What do mermaids wash their fins with? Tide.
