As the creator and host of Inflection Point, Lauren's (not-so-secret) mission is to talk with innovative women and broadcast their achievements in the US and around the globe. Lauren grew up with strong women, and in 1978 as a (much younger) girl, marched on Washington DC in support of the as-yet-un-passed Equal Rights Amendment--a day of significant influence in her life. Then again, it may have been burned into her memory because of the slip-on roller skates she wore or the Rachel Perry lip balm she tried on the bus down to DC, from Pittsburgh, PA where she grew up. After shelving her skates, she got her degree from Vassar College, interned at WKIP in Poughkeepsie and then went on to work directly for Jay Chiat at Chiat/Day NYC, one of the world' most creative ad agencies. Adopting their slogan, 'good enough is not enough' as her personal mantra, Lauren rose to the highest ranks of the industry and became a partner in the San Francisco firm kirshenbaum bond + partners. She has put her curiosity and business acumen to work with companies like America Online, Sprint, IHOP, Diners Club, Girls Inc, Peet's Coffee & Tea, Annie's Homegrown, Levi's, and Nike. Before creating Inflection Point, Lauren returned to broadcasting as the producer and co-host of the popular radio and TV show, 'The Lady Brain Show,' on which she interviewed 100s of industry leaders, authors, experts, actors, filmmakers, musicians and comedians. Lauren also co-hosted ‘Meet The Talkers’ for Stitcher Smart Radio-- featuring interviews with public radio hosts like Roman Mars, Bob Garfield, Jad Abumrad and Robert Krulwich. She's appeared on ABC7's View From the Bay, 7Live, HGTV's Find Your Style, and KRON, KTVU and CBS. She thanks you tremendously for listening.
