October 2012 Employee of the Month
Posted on 10/08/2012 from the home page.
Lauren has worked at UKC since March of 2012. She came to UKC when a friend and UKC agility participant encouraged her to apply. Lauren’s job responsibilities include form redesign and ordering, preparation for events, as well as marketing and promotion of UKC. Her favorite part of the job is that every day is different. There are always new projects and creative things to do. Art is a true passion of Lauren’s, and being able to incorporate her creativity into her work is one of the many things that make working at UKC great for her. Lauren also enjoys the positive attitude that UKC displays every day.
“Coming to work is fun, and that’s not something most people can say about their jobs,” she said.
Though Lauren doesn’t have an extensive background with dogs, she has always had dogs growing up and loved them as members of the family. Lauren currently owns a Labrador Retriever named Guinness who occasionally competes in UKC dock jumping events. Lauren graduated from Western Michigan University with a bachelor’s degree in both Art Education and Printmaking. In her spare time, Lauren always finds herself doing some sort of project. Her projects range from painting and quilting, to home renovation.
As far as growth for UKC, Lauren truly enjoys working with a company that is always trying to positively impact others and support not only its employees but customers as well. UKC’s drive to promote growth and excellence is something she is proud to be a part of.
