When we were in the early stages and Breaking Grounds Coffee & Cafe was only a concept, the idea of hiring adults with developmental disabilities was contingent on employees like LAUREN C. Simply put, in order for the cafe to be a success, we would need to rely on our staff to transition into responsible roles. Lauren deserves much of the credit for our success both in a managerial position and as a team leader. Lauren is both introspective and social when need be, and is an extremely hard worker. She is also a quick learner and is trusted to run parts of her shifts alone. We asked her some questions to get to know Lauren just a little better.
