She grew up in Lafayette and has deep ties to the Walnut Creek community. Lauren was previously the Database Manager and Administrative Assistant for the National Employment Lawyers Association and the Director of Operations at Lamorinda Music.

Marissa Seward, Program Manager

Marissa is excited to produce programs and media that directly align with WCLF’s mission.  She grew up in South San Francisco and enjoyed taking a backpack full of books home each week as a child.  She still loves to read and is thrilled to be working with people who share her passion.  Marissa has worked in advertising for nine years and most recently comes from working in Consumer Marketing at Meta.  She has lived in Walnut Creek for five years and enjoys running trails, trying all the restaurants, and working on her candle business, Wicked Wish Candles.
