Lauren Dixon

Lauren is originally from Denver, CO, but has been a Bay Area resident for the past 10 years, the vast majority of that time in San Francisco.  She moved to Sonoma County in September of 2010 with her husband Scott – a Sebastopol native, and quickly grew to love life in Sonoma County.

She is currently the Director of the Parks Alliance for Sonoma County, and has grown her policy and program solutions consulting business to include clients like Sonoma County Regional Parks, the Agricultural Preservation and Open Space District and the Sonoma County Economic Development Board.

Lauren has a BA from Washington University in St. Louis, and a Masters of Public Policy from the Goldman School at UC Berkeley.  She is a 2012 fellow of the Leadership Institute for Ecology and the Economy and a member of Leadership Santa Rosa class 29.

In San Francisco Lauren managed the research and policy practice at Pacific Community Ventures – a company that develops and invests in businesses providing economic gains to low/moderate income communities in California.

Lauren is thrilled to be working with the GoLocal team to bring attention to the importance of local economic development in Sonoma County.  When not at her desk, you will likely find her out running, hiking and playing in Sonoma County's great outdoors.
