Lauren Finegan started at Grasslands as a Diversity-in-Marketing 2022 intern. That internship was her first post-college position. She graduated from the University of Colorado at Boulder with a bachelor’s in business administration with an emphasis in marketing. She also earned a minor in Mandarin Chinese; her family's cultural background is something she enjoys learning about.

Her passions converge in growing as a person and professional at Grasslands. Seeing cannabis change people’s lives every day has had a huge impact on her life, especially in recognizing the plant’s potential to enhance daily life and wellness. In her work with the agency, she strives every day to help business leaders develop their brand messaging and marketing strategy to make meaningful connections with their audience. She relishes the opportunity to collaborate with colleagues and take cannabis marketing to the next level.

Three media outlets I check every single day: CNN, AdAge, The New York Times

Super inspired by: My grandmother, who I call my Nay-Nay. Darryl, who pushes me to be the best version of myself—every second of every day.

My monthly #GrasslandsGives donation: The Tennyson Center for Children

When I’m off the clock (in five words): Best friends. @babysilly_ . Self-growth. Food-trucks.
