Lauren Kummer was interested in news at an early age. At the age of 5, she began watching the morning and evening news before and after school. As she attended St. Thomas of Villanova Catholic High School, her curiosity was drawn to the school’s morning TV broadcasts. As she reported for the program, she discovered a passion for telling stories, which influenced her decision to study Journalism at Florida Gulf Coast University. During her studies, she has interned for WINK News in Fort Myers, FL and for Naples Daily News.
In her free time, Lauren likes watching community and Broadway theatre, boating, learning new skills, acting and trying local wines. She also enjoys traveling and has spent 4 months studying abroad in France. She took the opportunity to learn to speak French and travel to 16 European countries.
