New Employee Spotlight: Meet Lauren Burge

Meet Lauren Burge, Account Executive

Lauren joined the Karbo Com team in July as an Account Executive, bringing experience in high tech PR, including developer and security media relations. Lauren earned her B.A. degree in English from the University of San Francisco. In her spare time she enjoys taking photos, trying new foods and exploring New York City.

Q: What is the best piece of career/PR advice you’ve received?

A: Read, read, and read some more. In PR, it’s important to stay educated, relevant and interesting.

Q: What recent tech trend do you find particularly fascinating?

A: Over the past few years, I’ve had the pleasure to partner with a variety of cybersecurity clients. One trend I find fascinating within this industry is the use of artificial intelligence to protect smart cities across America.  If you asked me five years ago where I saw the artificial intelligence market moving, I would have never guessed it was heading in the direction of protecting cities from malicious hackers.

Q: What is your least favorite word and why?

A: Just. Early on in my career, I used this word to communicate with my colleagues over email and soon realized it demeaned the message I was trying to get across.

Q: Tell us something we wouldn’t know about you.

A: I’ve traveled to 10 different countries in the past four years.
