Lauren Williams is the development coordinator at Healing Transitions. She grew up in Richmond, Virginia before graduating from North Carolina State University. Before stepping into her role at Healing Transitions, Lauren worked for the Virginia War Memorial Foundation helping raise money for their various programs. Nonprofit work became a passion for Lauren. After deciding to move back to Raleigh, she found her dream job at Healing Transitions. Growing up, her mom served as board chair for a homeless organization in Richmond and the people they served had always touched Lauren’s heart. Being able to marry her love of nonprofits with the desire to serve those in need has been one of the best experiences of her life. When Lauren isn’t at work she spends time with her friends and her four-legged daughter, Hazel. Her favorite part about working at Healing Transitions is spending time with the participants.
