Each month we are highlighting three of our employees by having them share everything from their personal motto to their favorite architect to what’s on their bucket list. We are hoping this gives you a glimpse into the people of Lawrence Group.

Not Many People Know
Not many people know that I have been a vegetarian since I was four years old. No, my parents didn’t make me! 

Personal Motto
“Everything in moderation, including moderation.” – Oscar Wilde

On My Bucket List
Traveling makes up a lot on my bucket list. I’ve wanted to go to Greece since I was little, and I’ll admit I first fell in love with the idea of traveling to Greece after seeing Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants when I was younger. Hopefully I’ll make it there someday!

Favorite Thing About Lawrence Group
Lawrence Group has such a great mix of people. Some have been around since the very beginning, others joined somewhere along the way and some are fresh out of school. Each of us has something to learn and something to teach. I love that Lawrence Group encourages learning and teaching and gives each employee the opportunity to do each.

The people. The culture is fun and inviting and makes everyone feel welcome.
