Lauren-Burcherie-1-V2I Am Driven By | Believing that we all have the opportunity to make a difference in the world, and I’m not necessarily talking about the great big wide world, but the small world around us- our communities, the industries we work in and matter to us most as individuals, I am constantly focused on how I can contribute.

My Highlights | Meeting my wife is the highlight of my life. Working alongside her to fulfill our individual and shared goals make me the most proud.

Principles I Live By | Do things madly. Bring passion and purpose to your work. And always put your phone away at the dinner table.

 

Performing At My Peak | Rest when the opportunity presents itself and order strong espresso when it doesn’t.

Lauren-Burcherie-2-V2The Meaning Of Life | To find the people you love and make them know it. Nothing is more important than family and friends who are family.

The Best Advice I’ve Received | Stay present in the moment. You never know when an opportunity down the line will be made possible because of something you worked on previously.

I Am Inspired By | My mother and grandmother will always be my ultimate role models. I would need an entire essay to tell you the boundlessness of their capabilities. My wife inspires me every day with her beautiful and kind heart.

 

Lauren-Burcherie-3-V2 The Legacy I Would Like To Leave | I’d like to be known as someone who truly gave a damn about her work, who was known for being a good listener, and made people feel good when she was around.
