Lauren Carman

Lauren Carman, Indiana Electric Cooperatives’ communication manager, has been with IEC for over two years and is vital to the magazine; one reason is that she sets deadlines for the year to keep us on track. Here’s more about her:  

In my role, I get to do a little bit of everything, from content writing and planning to event coordination. Part of my role is supporting our member cooperatives. This might look like producing a communication campaign, teaching a photography class or supporting a co-op’s annual meeting. I also help come up with content ideas for Indiana Connection and serve as a magazine photographer when needed. I love helping our member co-ops and being connected with co-op employees all around the state! 

Three facts about Lauren:

  • My husband, Ryan, and I are expecting our first child in July — a baby girl! We’re excited for the new addition to our family, which also includes our toy Australian Shepherd, Maddie.  
  • My hometown is Graysville, Indiana, a small town near Sullivan. In 2013, Ryan and I moved to Houston, Texas, the fourth most populated city in the U.S. — very different than Graysville! We eventually moved back to Indiana and settled in Indianapolis. I enjoyed living in Texas but have determined that the Midwest is the best. Indianapolis is the perfect-sized city for me!
  • I worked as a photographer for a Houston wedding photography company and photographed more than 200 weddings in two years. Now I love to photograph my friends and their kiddos!

Not only is Lauren amazing at her job, but she is also one of the nicest people you will ever meet.
