Lauren Murphy is a freelance writer, pet owner, and crafter who contributes content to both The Spruce Pets and The Spruce Crafts.
- Contributed pet content to The Spruce Pets for almost two years
- Three years of freelance experience
- Dedicated humane society volunteer
After dog-walking and pet-sitting full-time for two years, she decided to write about it. She has contributed to The Spruce Pets and The Spruce Crafts since February 2018.
She first fell in love with crafting when she joined her local 4-H chapter. The club is usually centered on animals, especially farm animals, but Lauren's chosen path was crafts, cooking, and sewing. She got enough animal care experience at home with two exuberant Border Collies.
Lauren received her Bachelor of Science degree in Environmental Science from Western Washington University in 2013. Skillshare classes, craft clubs, and animal behavior classes made her into the DIY, pet, and craft writer she is today.
