A resident of Little Rock, Lauren has been involved with the Pagan community for over 20 years. She originally found Paganism while as a student at the Arkansas School for Mathematics and Sciences in the late 1990's by browsing the shelves at the now closed Golden Leaves bookstore. She became a Heathen in 2002, and formed Black Bear Kindred of Central Arkansas in 2003. She currently serves as their Gythia and leader.
Lauren has hosted two popular podcasts, Heathen Talk and SHEathenry. She currently serves as a moderator for Heathens Against Hate and is the Troth Steward for Arkansas, and occasionally blogs at Feminist Heathen. She and her husband have been married for 5 years, and have two fur babies.
