Lauren's Story

Lauren Stowell was working as a trainer at a gym, when someone mentioned to her that one day that she ought to work in recreation in senior living, something that never would have crossed her mind. So, she looked into studying therapeutic recreation at Norwalk (Conn.) Community College, and five years ago started as a Program Assistant at Edgehill, a Benchmark community in Stamford, Conn.

Lauren moved to Brookfield Common when promoted to Harbor Program Coordinator, where she is now Director of Community Relations. It’s not often that someone moves from the “care” side to the community relations side, but Lauren is sold on the service and personal connections that she and her fellow associates provide their residents. A mom to sons Zac and Michael, who was born in February, Lauren says, “What I love most about what I do is helping residents and their families find their new homes.

After residents move in, I like hearing from family members when they say, ‘Thank you for giving us our lives back.’ That’s when the family can become sons and daughters again, versus caregivers.”
