Lauren joined Madrona in 2018 and works on the back office team. In her role, she helps prepare, execute and track capital calls and distributions among active funds, maintains the investor database, administers the angel investment program, and also supports Jennifer Chambers.

Past Lives

Prior to joining the Madrona team, Lauren graduated cum laude from Seattle Pacific University with a degree in English and concentration in Literature. She is the former Editor-in-Chief of Lingua Journal, SPU’s student-led art and literary journal.


In the time she spends outside of Madrona, Lauren considers herself an avid Seattle Public Library patron, and enjoys practicing yoga, exploring local breweries, and taking neighborhood walks during golden hour.

Love for the PNW

As a Southern California transplant, Lauren appreciates the Pacific Northwest neighborhood farmers markets, the flourishing craft coffee culture, experiencing actual seasons with bearable summers, and the diverse art and music scene!
