Name: Lauren Westin
Position and time at Graco: Brand Manager, Playards – Since November 2010
Growing up, I always dreamed of being: A travel agent or a marine biologist. I was dead set on one of those, but now I just plan our vacations and try to fit in scuba diving whenever we can.
If I starred on “America’s Got Talent,” my act would be: cut before it made it to air.
The most adventurous thing I’ve ever done: Rafting down the Colorado River! It was stunning at every turn, but I did get flipped off the raft during a Class 8 rapid and ended up going through most of it with just my life vest. Needless to say, it was an amazing experience, but I don’t think I’ll be doing it again anytime soon.
My ideal vacation would be: How does a travel agent pick one place?! My ideal vacation would be to go anywhere in the world I’ve never been before and explore the area and culture. I’m up for wild adventures or laying on the beach – the best vacations have both.
Favorite childhood memory: Staying with my grandmother in Florida every summer. Every day was filled with pool time, an early bird special, and an oddly high amount of black jack for a little kid.
Dish of choice when dining out: Combination #10 (feel free to substitute any number) at El Azteca. There is no food better than Mexican.
Favorite product and why: I’m going to have to admit that I am 100% partial to playards. The Pack ‘n Play® Playard with Cuddle Cove™ Rocking Seat is my absolute favorite product because it is ingenious in its design and really does make parents’ lives easier. I can’t wait to share the new fashions coming out with our readers!
