Co-Director of Development

ynhera@jlc.bet Growing up and living near places like the sandy beaches of southern CA, the breathtaking mountains and valleys of Yosemite National Park, and the high altitudes and rainy seasons of Tepoztlán in central México, Lauren has always felt most at home within the wild spaces outside the front door. Lauren joined the WYP staff in 2021 to create deep and meaningful connections with the WYP community and brought with her a decade of nonprofit experience and an MBA with an emphasis in nonprofits and sustainability from Cal Lutheran University. Lauren began to call Santa Barbara home in 2015 and you can usually find her in the water at the beach or river, camping, cooking up new recipes, exploring a dusty trail, or getting dirty in the garden with her husband, son, rescue pup, and chickens.
