Who is Lauren? (she/her)

Hi! I’m Lauren: a geologist and mother, gratefully living with my family in Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish). I love spending time in nature: biking, hiking, running, walking, paddling, cold dipping, whatever! If I’m outside, I’m pretty happy. I’m running for council because I want to represent my community in making long-term decisions in the best interest of the people, land, and waters of Squamish.

In terms of experience I have dedicated the last 24 years to studying the earth. I have a B.Sc. Eng. in Geological Engineering, an M.Sc. in Geochemistry, and 15 years of experience as a geochemist. For the last 7 years I’ve been raising my family and working intermittently as a science show host, geochemist or teacher at Quest.

I believe that councillors should understand the values of their community, work together as a team, and represent their constituents best interest. My campaign platform is built upon three pillars: livability, affordability and environment.

With the help of public feedback and a great team (mostly moms) sharing our talents and ideas, I hope to have the opportunity to serve my community in municipal government come October 15th.
