Hello, I'm Lauren!

I am a certified Senior FileMaker Developer. FileMaker Development has been my career for more than 12 years and I love what I do. While my work is diverse, my specialties are helping medium-sized companies optimize their workflows and integrate their data to the web via APIs and plug-ins. I work every day to stay on the cutting edge.
