TAG Team Highlight: Lauren Santee

TAG Team Highlight: Lauren Santee

If you’re looking to have a quirky conversation with a down-to-earth, creative soul, Lauren Santee is your girl.

Serving as one of TAG’s Social Media Specialists, Lauren writes custom social media content for clients and  creates strategies to develop the best social media tactics to differentiate their brands within the market.

“I like to be creative and help businesses take pride in themselves,” said Lauren. “Social media is a way to help them stand for something, and help them communicate with their customers in a creative way.”

A graduate of  Augustana College in Rock Island, IL, Lauren majored in Business Marketing and Communication Studies.

“I did nothing of relevance on campus—I was just busy living my life.”

At TAG, we’re happy that Lauren has decided to live her life in our social media department!

“My favorite part about working at TAG is the people. We can all be creative together and create great ideas that help our clients succeed.”

Before coming to TAG, and before Augustana, Lauren took a year off of school and decided to pursue her passion in music and make a CD.

“I had some connections in New York City, and decided to head out there. I recorded an album there, then created a music video in a warehouse in Chicago. It was a way for me to have a creative outlet and music sparked my interest at the time.”

AsideBentley from music and social media, Lauren is passionate about her dog, Bentley, and her family. Outside of TAG, you can find her sipping on a rum & diet (with a lime!), eating chips & French onion dip and writing posts for her new blog, Fetch—a blog for dogs and their humans.

 

Lauren’s final words for this interview? “Stop trying to make fetch happen. It’s not going to happen!”

  • Planning for success: are you creating a road map for success when it comes to budget, priorities and timeline?
