Lauren is awesome to work with as a fellow creative team member at VV. As soon as she came on board to manage sailorapp content at the end of 2019, she rolled up her sleeves and showed enthusiasm for getting things done on day 1. Even though we didn’t regularly work on the same projects and she managed several other designer’s projects, we still crossed paths at our daily stand-ups every morning and I consistently saw her creative PM skills in action. Not many can be a jack of all trades creative and project manager in one, but she’s got it. I hope we continue to work together for years to come.​​

Lauren is a brilliant strategist and "ideator" for social media. Her copywriting skills can transform a seemingly dull piece of data into a great story. She is an endless fountain of ideas for big brand brainstorming. Lauren is the perfect blend of meticulous organization and an innovative talent in the social media sphere and as a copywriter. I loved representing Lauren to our client's and she always aimed to turn out great work. Also, she is a great communicator and not only works well on teams but independently too! I highly recommend Lauren to any company looking to hire a knock-out writer and social media extraordinaire.​

Lauren worked with Adams Morgan Main Street Group (AMMG)in 2009-2010, primarily on the annual Adams Morgan Day Festival. This Festival involved 100 volunteers, media management, public relations, artist & vendor management. Lauren exuded professionalism at a young age and made a strong contribution to social media, general writing, and all PR and media projects. She worked well with the Executive Director as well as volunteers, suppliers, vendors and press. As President of AMMG 2004 - 2012, I'm pleased to recommend her.​

A PR-grad-turned-Copywriter, Lauren emulates enthusiasm and passion in everything she takes on; every endeavor, project, article and even event. She started working for me at Adams Morgan Main Street Group in March 2009, helping out with production of our biggest annual event, the Adams Morgan Festival. Her role was media relations outreach, and right away she started contacting vendors, contributing social media messaging and collaborating ideas. She helped to make the festival a great and memorable event and we enjoyed having her on board. Since 2009, she's been up to quite a lot over the past 3 years working in various marketing and advertising roles to pave her writing career. So, even though it's been years since working with her, it's always a pleasure re-connecting and catching up.​​

Lauren was in my PR Research Class two years ago. She demonstrated strong analytical skills combined with strategic thinking and creative implementation in strategic communication. Lauren's individual assignments were well written with lots of insights about various research methods we introduced in class. Her leadership in the final client project has motivated the whole team to move forward together efficiently and provide the client the high-quality product. During her senior year, Lauren was one of two winners of the Richmond PR Foundation scholarship, which was an exceptional recognition of her academic excellence and the strong potential to be a successful young PR professional. Lauren is highly-motivated and very pleasant to work with. I highly recommend her.

Lauren is one of the most driven, goal-oriented people I know. When she sets her sights on something - be it for herself or for a client or employer - she goes after it with everything she has and always gets results. She warrants my wholehearted recommendation, which is rare.​

Lauren is the ideal combo of creative person and project manager you want on your creative team and just all around easy going and sweet person to work with. As soon as we started working together on sailor app content, she rolled up her sleeves and showed enthusiasm for getting things done day 1. It takes a lot of skill, tenacity and learning to dive into a new industry and role and new city, but I’ve seen her positivity, enthusiasm and work ethic shine through on joint projects and campaigns. She’s the opposite of high-strung micromanager you think of when you think PM, she’s exactly the opposite - easy going and down to earth — and what any creative team needs to succeed. I welcome the chance to continue working with her in the future.​​

Lauren Gauthier has exceptional writing and team skills. I hired Lauren twice as a full-time freelance copywriter for Hamilton Beach Brands, Inc., and I would gladly hire her again. She jumps into every writing project with enthusiasm, energy, and creativity. Never short of ideas and always eager to collaborate, I am grateful that I found Lauren. Look for her excellent work on amazon.com and hamiltonbeach.com. If you need persuasive, entertaining copy, hire her for the job. I did — twice!​

Lauren worked with me when I managed content for eBay’s social media channels. Shortly after coming on board, Lauren acquired an excellent understanding of eBay’s social brand and voice, enabling her to create engaging content that appealed to millions of eBay’s social media followers. Overall, Lauren was a fantastic asset to my team – a team player who worked well in cross-functional teams, delivering on crunch deadlines in a fast-paced work environment, and being an adept project manager in managing and prioritizing her tasks and deliverables.​

"I had the pleasure of working with Lauren at Proflowers. Not only did we work together, but we also shared a cubicle so I attest to the fact that she is an excellent neighbor 🙂 Very proactive and personable, she comes to the table with her own ideas, but is also very receptive to pivoting with feedback.The greatest testament to her value as a team member is when was instrumental in helping the social team reach their 1-year goals in 4 months."

"As a student in my PR Campaigns class, Lauren showed initiative and a drive to succeed from day 1. So I was not surprised when she was awarded the PRSA Scholarship for “Rising PR Professional.” Lauren proved to be an excellent student, shining during the final project when she presented a mock PR campaign to the Greater Richmond Red Cross."
