When Lauren isn’t designing the ABLE shoes you love, you can find her fiercely standing up for other women and most certainly speaking her mind. But she wasn’t always so honest. She was raised by two moms and her father, and she always hid part of her life to protect her family. Though she is now an open-book, her mama-bear like quality remains. Hear Lauren share how she grew up and why it’s so important to her now to use her voice. Visit www.livefashionable.com/podcast to share your story with us and receive a special offer from the brand. In order to protect the women in this series, some of their names may have been changed.
