About Lauren Horton
Lauren is part of the bankruptcy team in our office. She has been a bankruptcy paralegal for over 14 years now, though not always at our office. She moved from the East Coast over to the West Coast—the west coast of Florida, that is. Lauren is a huge asset to our office, but it’s her personal life that we like to talk about!
“I’m a twin, an identical twin, and I couldn’t imagine life without her! We find ourselves constantly thinking—and wearing—the same thing, and yes, we have that ‘twin power.’ We don’t have to actually speak to know what the other one is thinking, and we always know when something is wrong. She’s the only person I can be completely mad at, but over it in five minutes because I have something funny to tell her. Oh, and did I mention I also have a younger brother and sister who are also twins?! Yes, two sets of twins, seven years apart. Growing up in my family has been anything but boring!”
What Is Lauren Passionate About?
Millions of children face food insecurity every day, and many are unsure of where their next meal will come from. Lauren has chosen the charity ‘Blessings in a Backpack’ to help solve the hunger problem that far too many kids face. This program sends kids in need home with a backpack full of food every weekend. While many kids receive food at school, weekends are often the hardest time for families facing food insecurity.
“Kids can’t choose the life that they are born into,” she says, “providing meals is such a small way to make sure a child gets a hardy meal.”
Food insecurity is an issue close to Lauren’s heart as the sibling of a sister that works at a Title 1 elementary school. Laurent hears first-hand about how many kids need food regularly.
“Kids shouldn’t go without food. It breaks my heart,” says Lauren.
Blessings in a Backpack is, indeed, a blessing for many kids that would not have any food otherwise. To learn more about Blessing in a Backpack visit their website here.
