The People of CEF: Lauren Girdler

Leah Yee, Social Media Manager 10405623_10152232946272551_5912378035132877815_nAs an international non-profit organization, Compassionate Eye Foundation depends on the hard work of talented individuals willing to donate their time and expertise. We appreciate this and would like to once again recognize one of our outstanding volunteers!

Lauren Girdler is the Vancouver-based marketing manager at Savox Communications, a manufacturer of radio accessories and search and rescue equipment. Early in 2014 Lauren joined the CEF community as our editor, a position in which she regularly uses her keen eye for detail and editing skills to review all content for the blog, website, and newsletter before it is made public. She is responsible for providing general grammar and punctuation edits, as well as clarification on content - it’s a tough job but someone has to do it!

Lauren was first introduced to the world of commercial imagery through a previous job as an instructional designer, in which she would spend hours searching stock photography banks. When she came across the CEF opportunity in an online volunteer posting, she felt a real connection to our funding model. In her own words, she “really liked the idea of supporting sustainability and educational projects around the world”, and we couldn’t agree more!

Currently Lauren is building a consistent writing style guide for all contributing writers within CEF, which will be promoted throughout our entire organization. And when she is not doing this, she enjoys spending her time travelling, cooking, doing yoga, or playing soccer.

From all of us at CEF, a huge thank you to Lauren for your continued hard work!
