Lauren, a resident of Milton, Georgia, will graduate in May 2019 from the University of Georgia with degrees in Marketing and Real Estate. As a student at UGA, Lauren spent a summer in Australia and New Zealand studying international business and sustainability. She found a passion for promoting confidence in the professional goals of UGA’s students, which she pursued through her position as the student coordinator for the Terry Women’s Initiative. She also served as the Vice President of Recruitment for UGA’s Panhellenic Council and is an ambassador for the Terry College of Business. As a member of her sorority, she served as a special events chair, a member of the programs council, and a group leader for the recruitment executive council. Her greatest accomplishments at UGA were being honored as a Deer Run Fellow and a Sea Island Scholar. Her most fond memory during her time in college will always be the opportunity to represent the University of Georgia on Homecoming Court as a senior. During her summers, she worked as a commercial real estate intern at Collier’s International and as a paralegal assistant at a local law firm.
In her spare time, Lauren enjoys traveling, boating at the lake, and cheering on all of her favorite sports teams (Go Dawgs and Go Braves!)

Annie is a Georgia Tech graduate with a degree in Business Administration and a minor in Social Justice. While in school, she enjoyed getting involved in different areas of campus, including becoming a DJ for WREK radio, writing for the school’s newspaper, and studying abroad in Buenos Aires. However, she invested most of her time in developing an arts culture at her technical institute by leading think tanks, creating a student organization, and working with school administration. Her love for the arts persists as she continues to get involved in the Atlanta arts community, paint, and design floral arrangements.
Annie also pursued internships at Coca-Cola, GE, Mailchimp, and other companies that peaked her interest in project management. Humorously enough, it was actually her part-time job as a farmer's market clerk for a flower farm that solidified her decision to pursue it. She realized she couldn’t help but work outside of work hours to figure out ways to improve the farm’s efficiency and essentially make everyone else’s jobs easier. As an Atlanta native, Annie is ecstatic to join the Cox team and continue problem solving amongst her peers in the LEAD Program.
