Lauren Neale, Director of Communications
Lauren Neale was born and raised in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. She attended the University of Iowa and majored in both Journalism and Anthropology. For nearly four years, Lauren worked to "tell the story of Montana family ranching" for the Montana Stockgrowers Association. This multimedia project sent her across Montana to gather photos and videos of Montana ranchers to share on social media with the goal of creating a positive message of the beef community. Lauren also published a coffee table photo book with these images and stories called: "Big Sky Boots: Working Seasons of a Montana Cowboy." In 2013, she won the National Cattlemen's Beef Association's Excellence in Public Relations and Communications Award for her work. She also won Vance Publishing's 40 Under 40 Award in 2015.
Now, Lauren is the Director of Communications for the Tennessee Cattlemen's Association. In this role, she was honored with Murfreesboro Magazine's 20 Under 40 Young Professionals Award in 2018. At the 2019 TCA Convention & Trade Show, Lauren received the honor of the President's Award for her work developing strong communication platforms for the association.
Lauren is happily married to Ben, a cattle producer, and they have a son named Corban and a daughter named Abigail.
