Lauren Ballard

A Florida native who recently moved to Atlanta in the summer of 2021, Lauren is the newest member of the team. Lauren enjoyed the warm Florida weather but loves having the Georgia mountains and hiking trails in her backyard.

Lauren graduated from the University of North Florida with a Bachelor of Science in Psychology as well as minors in Sociology and American Sign Language / Deaf Studies. After college, she traveled the world and lived in Thailand for three years where she taught English. As Lauren says, “I met the most amazing people and got to experience life while being completely immersed in Thai culture. It forever changed me. I learned so many lessons about life and people that I wouldn’t have learned if it weren’t for my time in Thailand.” This international experience helped shape Lauren’s outlook on helping people from all walks of life.

Lauren is fluent (or semi-fluent) in five languages: English, Spanish, American Sign Language, Thai, and Hebrew. For the last five years, Lauren has been busy raising two little boys and working as a preschool teacher. When she is not at work helping our clients, Lauren enjoys exploring the Georgia mountains with her young sons. You can email Lauren at
