Born and raised outside of Kirkton, ON on a small cash crop farm, agriculture has always been a large part of Lauren’s life. She has been an enthusiastic member of 4H in Perth county, training and showing jersey heifers for the past 5 years. Through out high school she worked evenings on a neighbours dairy farm milking and on weekends at a broiler-breeder flock doing chores. In September 2012 she began her Bachelor of Science in Agriculture at the University of Guelph and looks forward to graduating in April 2016.
Currently, Lauren works in field research for E.I. DuPont Canada Crop Protection. Her job involves developing more crop protection products to help farmers safely control pests and achieve higher yields.
