Lauren Cappell
Lauren lives in Kirkwood with her husband, Eric and their two daughters Claire (5) and Frances (3). Both she and her husband are transplants, Lauren originally from San Diego and her husband, Charleston, SC. They’ve called St. Louis their home since 2013. Lauren taught both first and third grade for 10 years before becoming a full time stay at home mom.

She understands the immense value of community which is what brought her to St. Louis Mom.
