Award-winning storyteller and digital media pro building the world's most innovative brands into sustainable, forward-thinking ecosystems for profit, people and the planet.

Lauren Noëlle Gauthier

When I’m not managing digital content and all things app related for Richard Branson’s latest hospitality company – Virgin Voyages – you can probably find me outside trying to make the world a better place than i found it. That (obviously) includes endless yappy hours, clean-up-the-beach days, recycling, scuba diving, running, discovering new places… and traveling the globe.

13 cities lived worldwide

From DC to Charleston, Florence to Rome, Philly to New Orleans, San Francisco to San Jose, San Diego to New York, Los Angeles to Miami and many cool places in between, I've tackled them all to build up a kick-ass digital sustainability career. Why so many?

Well, us digital natives thrive on exploration, a change of scenery and fuel of a different kind (*cough travel cough*). So when wifi is our office, digital is our job, and tackling brand problems is our calling, why the heck not?

What drives me? Some days, it's the pulse of a city beneath my feet and everything at my fingertips. Some days, it's the rush of the waves against my surf and the outdoors grounding me. And other days, it's the urge to accomplish a never-ending bucket list like it's my last. But really, I think it's just plain ol' FOMO driving me.

28 brands and counting

My digital career is an accident, actually. I stumbled into it after college when my PR degree and sustainability scholarship was flushed down the toilet in the Recession of '08. Devastated but resilient, I went the unconventional freelance route, found my calling and never looked back.

Recalling the milestones that fueled me...
who knew, this 22-year-old temp writing for kinda famous speakers could become their agency marketing manager within 6 months? who knew, 4 year laters this writer could increase sales for Hamilton Beach appliances on Amazon.com by 60% in 1 week? ... and who knew 1 year later, This hybrid writer/designer would be living on the west coast and redesigning websites for Stanford Hospital? And who knew, 3 years later, this digital storyteller would be leading digital efforts for PBS SoCal's first-ever social impact initiative on Foster care? And who knew this working digital pro could turn it all into a successful career?

Today, 28 brand experiences later, I've just scratched the surface of possibilities. who knows what's next?
