About the Alert1 Staff: Meet Lauren McKinney

Lauren McKinney

Lauren is a marketing intern and writer at Alert1. Her passion for marketing and desire to work for a company that benefits people’s lives are what drove her to Alert1. At Alert1, she is able to share the message of allowing for more tomorrows and aging in place to people all across America.              

Lauren currently attends West Valley College in Saratoga. In May, she will graduate with Associates Degrees in Sociology, Psychology and Administration of Justice. It is her ultimate goal to pursue Human Rights Law, though marketing has found its way of growing on her in time. Once she graduates, she isn’t quite sure where she wants to finish her undergraduate degree. Lauren is open to the idea of attending a university in Europe, as she enjoys the culture.

At school, she is involved in the Alpha Gamma Sigma Honor Society where she enjoys giving back to her community and developing stronger leadership skills through the organization. The semiannual bake sales also help to keep her baking skills sharp. Previous to AGS, Lauren was a Senator and Director of Communication for the Associated Student Government. It was there that her interest in marketing developed.

In addition to her studies, Lauren is also a collegiate water polo player and swimmer who thrives on friendly competition. Lauren is happy to now to share her love of the water and outdoors with her three year old daughter; who already has her first water polo ball and is working catching and throwing. Lauren’s daughter is already following in her mom’s athletic foot steps with weekly dance and gymnastics classes. Once a cringe worthy title, Lauren now lovingly embraces the term “Dance Mom.”          

When Lauren is able to enjoy an evening at home, she can be found searching the web for future recipes to try while simultaneously catching up on the latest Netflix series. Currently her favorite is “Chelsea.

Whenever the chance arises, Lauren loves to travel. Experiencing different cultures has a profound way of reminding her of what’s important in her own life. One of which being her family, including her grandparents who have had a huge impact on her life.

Lauren’s favorite thing about Alert1 is the vision that families with grandparents as treasured as her own can have peace of mind. Aging in place with a medical alert system allows for independence. It keeps our loved ones living their lives for more and more tomorrows with them.
