Creating Together Board of Directors 2022-2023
Season has lived in the Roncesvalles-Parkdale neighbourhood since 2019 and began her relationship with Creating Together as a parent when her oldest son was 8-months-old. She joined the Board with hopes of helping Creating Together reach its fullest potential, knowing what a special place it can be to families. When she isn’t trying to catch up with her kids, Season is an occupational therapist and psychotherapist, a lover of stories, and can usually be found somewhere outside on a long walk.

When not working or volunteering, Lauren can be found exploring the city on foot or bike, or engaged with her other passions which include nature, travel, art, food, and music.
