Lauren Mireles, FPQP

Organization and Methods Manager

Vitt_5970Lauren Mireles, FPQPTM earned a bachelor’s degree in International Studies: Business and Economics with a minor in Leadership from California University of Pennsylvania. Her leadership training was supplemented by the Seven Habits of Highly Effective People certification and Stephen Covey “Leader for Life” certification. At California University, Lauren served as an AmeriCorps Fellow and completed 300 hours of community service during her final year of school. She was also dedicated to her university’s Peer Mentoring program where she helped incoming, undecided students make the transition from high school to college.

Lauren earned her Financial Paraplanner Qualified ProfessionalTM certification from the College for Financial Planning in 2013. Her growing involvement in the firm inspired her to further her knowledge of financial planning to better serve our Clients. Currently, Lauren is pursuing a master’s degree in Organization Development and Knowledge Management from George Mason University.

Lauren enjoys volunteering as often as she can with organizations such as Dreams for Kids, DC Central Kitchen, Food for Others, and Lost Dog and Cat Foundation. In her free time, she enjoys cooking and baking, Zumba, yoga, and other aerobic and strength classes, scrapbooking, traveling, and spending time with friends and family.

Client Focus: Lauren approaches her work with Clients by viewing herself as a sounding board. She focuses on listening to a Client’s story, building an authentic relationship with them, and working to anticipate their needs proactively.

Current Update: Lauren recently celebrated her graduation from her Master’s degree program! The graduation festivities began with George Mason University’s degree celebration where she walked across the stage to collect her “diploma” and concluded with a party surrounded by friends and family. After everyone went home, Lauren was left with a very full and grateful heart. The question Lauren has been hearing now is, “what’s next?!”. For now, Lauren plans to fill her free time with adventures with friends and family and re-learning how to play the piano.

At Yeske Buie, Lauren recently enjoyed spending time with all the Clients and Allied Professionals who attended our event in Virginia and looks forward to planning a similar event in San Francisco on September 12th. Lauren also looks forward to welcoming our new Residents, Alishia DuBois and Cole DeLucas, in a few weeks – it’s always exciting to have new energy rippling through the office!

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that others won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give others permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” ~Marianne Williamson
