City of Farmington hires new communications specialist

Lauren Siebenaler

Lauren Siebenaler began working as the new communications specialist for the City of Farmington on Jan. 22.

Siebenaler, 23, of Hastings, brings experience working in communication for the cities of Edina and St. Louis Park.

During college, she worked as an intern for Washington County Parks and reports she fell in love with serving park patrons and educating residents about the qualities of all the county parks. This internship experience steered her toward pursuing a career in the public sector and city government.

Siebenaler will write the city's recreation guide and press releases, update the city's website and manage the city's social media platforms.

"I am excited to be here and look forward to getting to know residents and staff and learn all about Farmington and I know it is not that different from Hastings," Siebenaler said.
