Lauren Hoyt-Williams has the best job ever. As a publicist for Busch Gardens and SeaWorld in Florida, her job is to share all that’s fun, thrilling and new at the parks. So that means traveling to television and radio studios for appearances with exotic animals. Hosting media for a fun-filled day in the park. Communicating with fans on Facebook. Yes, it really doesn’t get much better than this. Well, except when she’s meeting the park’s baby animals, riding SheiKra on her lunch break or her young daughter reminds others that Cookie Monster is Mommy’s close friend.
In a past life, Lauren was a features writer for a daily newspaper. Now she pushes stories on other journalists and relishes her role on “the dark side.”
A University of Florida graduate, Lauren lives in Tampa with her husband, daughter and a not-so-exotic dog.
