Lauren MacLeod

Event Specialist

Lauren was born and raised in Orange, California but moved to Long Beach once she was accepted into California State University Long Beach. She has resided in LB for the past 6 years and absolutely loves it. During her time at CSULB, Lauren was a 4-year student athlete playing softball and a founding member of the Consumer Affairs Student Association on campus. She went on to receive her degree in Consumer Affairs which has prepared her for success in the event and catering industry.

While playing softball, Lauren was coached by Christy, Linda’s (the CEO of Jay’s Catering) daughter. She was coached by her for more than 10 years, so Lauren often heard talk of Jay’s Catering. Lauren applied for a serving job at Jay’s and worked all through college as a server with the company. After graduating college, she pursued a sales position at another company outside of Jay’s and when she got word of Jay’s Catering hiring Event Specialists, she immediately went in for an interview and got the job!

Lauren loves being a part of and sharing wonderful and momentous events in people’s lives. It makes her happy to see the love and joy come out of the events created here at Jay’s Catering and seeing fun, new ideas come to life. She mentioned that of course she loves the delicious food that never fails to impress anyone, but she has a lot of pride in the service offered at Jay’s too.
