Meet Lauren – Assistant Manager, Roanoke

As we grow as a company, we thought it would be fun to spend some time, dig deep, and get to really know the women who make Derriere de Soie such a special place. Hang out with us while we ask the standard, silly, and deep-diving questions that get to the heart of each person. Up today, Lauren, the Assistant Manager of our Roanoke location.
