Good Morning Racquel and Joan, I am emailing you both to let you know what an amazing, wonderful and great asset Lauren is to your company. Edward Jones had a 100th anniversary celebration at the Forest Park Visitor Center on 8/13/22. Lauren was our Event Coordinator. She went above and beyond the whole time I worked with her. I was the Co-Chair Person for the event and I handled a lot of the things that needed to be done. I will tell you that had it not been for Lauren and all of her help the event would not have turned out as wonderful as it did. She was always polite, kind and would email or call me back the same day. We had a large committee that had a lot of questions and she was always there to answer them. I had the pleasure as the co-chair to talk with her numerous times and I could not have been any happier with the services we received. The night of the event she made sure everything went according to plan. So please take the time to share this with her and give her the praise and thanks from all of us here at Edward Jones. She truly rocks!
