Lauren has been a Perkins Corporator since October 2020. Since the Fornes’ six year-old son, Charles (nickname “Brick”), enrolled in the Perkins Early Learning Center in the fall of 2019, Lauren has become an active volunteer who is eager to give back to Perkins. She has attended Shark Tank 2020, Perkins Annual Meetings in 2020 & 2021, a Corporator Coffee & Conversation with Dave Power, and she spoke at the April 2021 Corporator Coffee alongside Mike Williams to share her perspective as a parent of a child with CVI. She and husband, Don, also participated in Perkins first annual 2021 Everybody In! Walk/Move in October 2021, generously raising donations through peer-to-peer fundraising.
Lauren started her career in marketing for Sotheby’s in San Francisco, followed by business development/corporate strategy roles for luxury consumer product goods. She stepped back from the corporate world to focus on her family and pursue her interest in interior design while supporting a variety of philanthropies.
