Member Spotlight: Lauren Keating - Eleanor's Place
Meet our October 2019 Member Spotlight, Lauren Keating!
“It is okay to not know everything, especially when you’re getting started in your career. What is important is being willing to put in the work and learn.”
Lauren is a Territory Sales Manager for SC Johnson Professional, a leading manufacturer of cleaning and skin care products. Lauren develops customized hygienic solutions for her clients across various verticals from healthcare to sports & entertainment, education to corporations. As the company’s youngest sales representative, she is honored to have grown her territory to be the second largest in the North American market, and finished in the Top 5 for growth. Originally from Greenville, South Carolina, Lauren is happiest when she has a glass of red wine and hanging out with her husband Adam (best blind date ever!) and children, Ford (4) and Charlotte (3). When she’s not being a taxi for her little ones, Lauren is saving old buildings as a member of the Georgia Trust for Historic Preservation and cheering on her alma mater, The University of South Carolina, where she serves on the Board of Advisors for the Business Partnership Foundation.
Her female role model is her mom: “Growing up, she worked full time at the hospital, but still found time to help with homework, attend soccer games and volunteer at the school. Looking back I’m honestly not sure when the woman had time to sleep, but I fully credit her for my work ethic and understanding the importance to being self-sufficient.”
Lauren’s favorite quotes are, “Its okay to fall apart sometimes. Tacos fall apart and we still love them,” “Another woman’s beauty is not the absence of your own,” & “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.”
“It’s warm and inviting like your home, but minus the endless piles of laundry. Being a remote employee has its perks, but can feel isolating at times. It has been inspiring and refreshing to have a ‘home’ where I can be surrounded by hardworking, driven women. How did I survive before this place?!”
