Associate Editor

Lauren Spear has been writing and editing since she was six years old (and doing so professionally since she was 25). Lauren was very active as a child, teen, and in her early twenties — she earned a second-degree black belt in SKK, loved riding horses, and could often be found rollerblading or at the local gym.

She had a setback in her late twenties and became obese (320lbs at her heaviest; and she’s only 5’3″ tall!); but has since gotten back on track and is working towards making her forties her healthiest decade yet!
