Meet Lauren, Our Village Downers Grove Area Playgroup Leader

Lauren Baltuska is originally from Elkhart Lake, WI (about an hour north of Milwaukee). She has lived in the Chicagoland area for about six years, living in Bucktown for five years and moving to Darien in February of 2016. Although she is new to the area, her husband is from Lemont; so she has been acquainted with the area for a while. She taught second grade for five years, and when she found out she was pregnant, she decided to stay home and substitute teach a couple days a week instead. The entire family enjoys exploring parks and forest preserves in the western suburbs, having picnics by their pond behind their townhouse, and visiting friends and family in Wisconsin.
