Lauren Bender, ACSR

Commercial Account Associate
(516) 279-2329

During her senior year at Manhattan College, Lauren began an internship with the world’s fifth largest media agency. After graduating, Lauren was asked to return as a fulltime associate digital planner. She was the point person for full media campaigns, which was difficult but there was never a dull day. When the clients were transferred to a satellite office, Lauren took this as an opportunity to change directions. She entered the senior living industry as a Program Instructor, later moved into her first supervisory role as a Program Director at a different property and then eventually became the Community Business Director of yet another property. She worked as the community’s liaison to residents, families and employees. Lauren directed all on-site activity but she felt ready for a new challenge which led her to Mackoul.
