In this member highlight, meet CondoGrade CEO and Co-Founder and Haus Financial Services LLC Founder, Lauren Peddinghaus
Lauren is an entrepreneur extraordinaire with extensive experience in condo management and finance. She’s from New Jersey and studied film as a Radio/TV/Film major at Northwestern University. Lauren stayed in Chicago afterward and now calls Wilmette home.
While Lauren has an office near Lincoln Square, she wanted to work near home and not spend hours commuting every day. She heard about CoWorkers from a simple Google search and has been here since November 2014. Since working out of CoWorkers, she’s noticed a change in her productivity.
“It’s a fun working experience, and when I come here I’m excited, ” Lauren said. “CoWorkers provides an excellent social outlet that fosters creativity and feels like a second home to me.”
She also adds that working at CoWorkers has been a goldmine for networking.
“One of the co-founders and two of my advisers for my startup I met here,” Lauren said. “Also, the feedback and input I receive from Coworkers members are very valuable to me.”
Fun facts: Lauren likes yoga, has traveled to Machu Picchu in Peru and loves sushi.
