Lauren Finegan is a recent graduate from The University of Colorado at Boulder, where she graduated with a BS in business administration with an emphasis in marketing. She also earned a minor in Mandarin Chinese, which, owing to her personal cultural ties to the language, she had been studying since high school.  

This internship is Lauren’s first post-college position. She was intrigued by working for a company like Grasslands that works to advance the industry by helping professionalize cannabis PR and marketing, and she is gratified to apply the skills she earned through her degree to her work at Grasslands.

Her passions converge in growing as a person and professional. 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.

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.
