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: Last month, Lauren and several members of the Yeske Buie team enjoyed bountiful conference learning at Schwab’s IMPACT Conference in Washington, DC. Lauren found the keynote speaker sessions to be seriously impactful, and enjoyed a “divide and conquer” method for watching the high-level breakout sessions with Lauren Stansell and Yusuf. Additionally, Lauren recently spent a week in Yeske Buie’s San Francisco office to interview candidates for our sixth class of Financial Planning Residents. We couldn’t be more pleased with the exceptionally talented individuals we’ve met through this process, and we look forward to introducing you to our newest Residents next summer.

At home, Lauren is looking forward to a full and heartwarming holiday season. She plans to spend her weekends baking holiday cookies, crafting DIY gifts for family and friends, and decorating her home with holiday cheer.

“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
