Lauren De Cesare

Co-creator and kick-arse sales chick for Adelady. After completing a Bachelor of Media at Adelaide University, she worked her way up into the role of Executive Producer for the SAFM brekky show – which is where she met her partner in crime, Hayley. After taking a break from the radio world, Lauren went on to become the Campaigns Manager for the Leukaemia Foundation SA before moving over to Adelady full-time. Lauren’s a lover of her big Greek/Italian family, platform sneakers and handbags. Rather than buying a house one day, she may end up living in her GIANT Marc Jacobs bag. She believes life should be fun, sparkly and exciting. Ain’t nobody got time for dull and boring! Lauren loves finding a new place to have a drink and hang out with her girlfriends, so if you know of a place, hit her up. She hopes to one day own a miniature sausage dog called Pesto — an Ode to Timmy.
