Lauren Davenport graduated from the MMIT program in 2015 and began working for iZone Imaging, a sign company in Temple, doing graphic design and project management for a while. After getting married and moving to Utah, she began working for Interpretive Graphics. Lauren says, "Attending UMHB gave me tools to succeed in my career path, specifically time management when it comes to graphic design. In the design world, it's not only important to be creative and professional but also to develop relationships with the people you work with. Sometimes, that can be really time-consuming! However, working on all my projects in school and still maintaining a strong social life prepared me to do the same in my career."
