"When I first met Lauren, I was in a job that barely paid the bills and I was joyless. I had just returned to the workforce after being injured at a previous job. I was low in confidence, drive and in an unhealthy relationship. I knew I wasn't living to my full potential and she was the light that helped me realize my dreams and the steps necessary to chase them. She encouraged me to find a job that I could find passion in and gain the experience I needed. I found the perfect job working in a daycare and started going to school to be a teacher. I am now in my 6th year of teaching and cannot imagine my life without pouring into my TK students every week. I am grateful for Lauren's amazing nature to nature others to follow their dreams". - Billie Louise Cueto
