Lauren was raised in Claude and graduated from Claude High School as Valedictorian of her class. While growing up she helped her dad in the summers build fence and co-owned (with her two sisters) a successful lawn care business. After graduation she attended Tarleton State University where she earned a degree in Business Administration. The week after her college graduation a Fortune 500 company offered her a job at their corporate headquarters. Within a few months she had been given her own team and was excelling in her work. Toward the end of 2018 she was poised to receive two big promotions when she told her dad that she didn’t think she was cut out for the Fortune 500 Corporate world. Jess immediately told her that he had a spot for her if she was interested in coming home to help with the family business. This had been Lauren’s dream since college so she spent the next couple of months praying about it. It became apparent to her that God was opening a door for her to pursue her dream. When her contract expired in January of 2019 she notified her company she would be leaving. Now she and Jess work side by side running 287 AG. Lauren brings a fresh vision for the future to the business. She is intelligent, articulate, personable, genuine and has a love for people. Most all of our customers say she is the best thing that has ever happened around here.
