Web Designer

Self proclaimed foodie and proud cat mama, Lauren’s journey to Big West Marketing is as unique as her ever-changing hair. Ever since she was little, she has always pursed interests in both arts and technology. With a BFA in scenic painting, she toured with the Montana Repertory Theatre for a season, and worked at the Bigfork Summer Playhouse for a number of years. She eventually decided to settle in Missoula, returning to the area she fell in love with while getting her degree. In recent years, she started to focus more on coding and web development as a career path instead of just a hobby. She believes in standing out and brings that philosophy to her designs, finding the balance between functionality and style.
