Lauren Fornes



Fornes is a Perkins Corporator (since 2020) and a Perkins parent, as well as a mom to three typically developing children. Fornes has a background in luxury marketing, strategy and business development for consumer product goods. She took an extended break from the corporate world to focus on her family, including her son with neurological blindness, spastic quadriplegic cerebral palsy and epilepsy. When her son’s health stabilized, Fornes dedicated herself to “seeing for two” as an interior decorator, children’s book author and advocate for universal design and inclusion. Fornes splits her time between the Boston area and Nantucket with her husband, Don, four children and Bernese Mountain dog.
