Lauren Kwedar Cockerell is an explorer of words and worlds. As a communications executive, she loves writing, reading, learning something new every day, social media, and helping others. As a wife, mother, daughter, sister, and friend, she is a community volunteer, a health and wellness devotee, an enthusiastic but messy cook, an iPhoneographer, and a voracious consumer of podcasts. She would very much like to go everywhere and do everything. She and her husband have a toddler, a baby on the way, and two precocious dachshunds.
