I’m Lauren and I’m thrilled to be back home in West Michigan! I grew up in Allegan and attended GVSU after high school. Upon graduating I spent several years moving around the Midwest to pursue my dream of doing radio full-time. I spent a few years living in Nebraska so sorry Michigan/Michigan State fans, I’m a Huskers fan now! Most recently I lived in Missouri but don’t worry, I am not a Chiefs fan. I’m so grateful that I now get to do what I love, where I love to be: HOME. Thank you for letting me keep you company during your afternoon drive!
