Army Veteran, Spouse & Caregiver
Lauren Warner grew up an Army brat, moving twelve times as a kid before heading off to college. She attended The Pennsylvania State University and graduated with degrees in English and Journalism, before deciding to follow in her dad’s footsteps and join the Army.
For the past four years she has run the social media for The U.S. Army 3d Infantry Regiment (The Old Guard), along with being the first and only female Voice of The Old Guard, and participating in Twilight Tattoo and Spirit of America performances.
Lauren is not only a military veteran, but a military spouse as well. While at Fort Myer, Lauren met her husband and they’ve been inseparable ever since.
Due to the nature of her husband’s injuries, Lauren separated from the military in order to provide as a full-time caregiver. Since separating from the Army, Lauren has been looking for ways to plug into the caregiving community, completing her 200-hour yoga teacher training through VEToga, another local military community non-profit. She’s now in search of a way to give back to that organization and help grow its base here in the DMV. A lifetime Girl Scout, Single Soldier’s advocate, and a Family Readiness Group member, after countless hours of volunteering she’s looking for a new way to direct her energy with a non-profit focus.
With two years of caregiving under her belt, she’s found her passion in the caregiving and veteran community and her goal post-fellowship program is to find a way to connect more veterans with holistic resources like such as yoga.
