Lauren Shields

Integrated Account Executive

Media and marketing have had Lauren’s heart since her high school days (2011 to be exact). Since then, Lauren has had a wide range and variety of work experiences throughout the industry, including copy-editing, copy-writing, public relations, sales, promotion, advertising and more. In 2016, Lauren studied advertising and public relations at the American University of Rome for six weeks. Through this same study abroad program, Lauren also had the extreme honor of attending the Cannes Lions Festival in Cannes, France. This humbling experience is what Lauren says gave her the “travel bug” that she carries with her to this day. In August 2017, Lauren graduated with honor from Michigan State University with a Bachelor of Arts in journalism, a Bachelor of Arts in advertising and a minor in public relations. After a brief hiatus to the property management world (her work experiences really are broad), Lauren went back to her roots and became part of the FOX 47 team in April of 2019. When she isn’t writing scripts or meeting with clients, you can find Lauren snuggling her dog and two cats, eating Mexican food, or planning her next trip abroad.
