Lauren Fernandez, a resident of North Sandy Springs, is the founder and CEO of Full Course, a new kind of development and investment firm dedicated to the growth of emerging restaurant brands. As a mother to two-year-old son Miles and Audrey, her 11-year-old stepdaughter, she balances being a working parent in the same way she helps clients: identifying creative solutions, delegating whenever possible, and looking for efficiencies. Recognizing that work-life is a blend, Fernandez praises meditation to stay focused and present in her busy life. She serves as an Advisory Board member for the Atlanta Community Food Bank.
