Lauren's Controller background and public accounting experience make her the total package!
Lauren grew up in Ozark, Missouri, graduating as Valedictorian of her high school class. Although originally a Biology major with the intention of becoming a Zookeeper, she found her love of numbers after being entrusted with the bookkeeping at a local architecture firm. While working full-time, Lauren put herself through college, graduating with a Bachelor of Science in Accounting from Missouri State University.
Before she even graduated, Lauren had already built her own successful company specializing in full-service, customized bookkeeping solutions for small business of all types. In 2016, after managing her business for five years, Lauren accepted a full-time position with Küat Racks where she eventually grew to become the company’s first Financial Controller. Lauren left her position with Küat to join the A&CO team in 2023.
In her free time, Lauren enjoys home improvement projects, riding bikes with her son, working out at OrangeTheory Fitness, and reading. Lauren has always had a passion for animals; her first job was as a dog groomer’s assistant. She has volunteered as a docent at Dickerson Park Zoo, and has fostered countless dogs. She currently has two dogs (a Shih Tzu named Calliope and a Shih Tzu/Chihuahua mix named Primrose) and a cat (Dudley).
Accounting is the perfect blend of problem solving, number crunching, and rule following. I take a lot of pride in being able to show a business owner precise and accurate financial statements that they can use not only to see the current health of their company, but also to plan their future endeavors.
