Employee Spotlight – Lauren Allen

February 7, 2019

What’s your name, what do you do at Neurocore, and how long have you worked here?

My name is Lauren Allen. I’m a content specialist and have been here for almost 2 years.

What do you enjoy the most about your job?

I do our graphic design, write our blogs, and manage our social media pages (go follow us!), and what’s great about that is it’s an interesting blend of being creative and analytical. I have to think more strategically about what our audience wants to see and read about, but then I get to exercise some creative muscles by actually executing that content.

So, I’d have to say that being able to blend those two parts of my brain is what I love most about my job. But I do also love that I get to be a part of a company that works to improve the lives of people every day – that’s pretty awesome.

Outside of work, what are your passions or hobbies?

I’m my happiest when I get to spend quality time with my closest friends. That usually involves exploring bars and restaurants, finding a new recipe to try together (and eating it even when it turns out terribly), or just sitting on the couch and shooting the breeze.

On the flip side, does eating Thai take out in a bubble bath count as a passion? Because it’s definitely one of mine. 

What’s the most interesting thing you’ve learned on the job here?

That’s a tough one. Since I have to do a lot of research for our blogs, I’ve learned so much more about neuroscience than I ever thought I would while working here (did you know that the brain can actually eat itself?)

But I think the most impactful thing I’ve learned is how much control we have over our brain health. I’ve really taken to heart that the choices we make every day actually do affect our health now, and in the future. Because of this, I decided to switch up my diet and exercise routines and some of my health issues have just about vanished. Shocking, I know.

What was the first concert you ever went to?

Savage Garden. Not even embarrassed.
