Lauren Kidd Ferguson began her journalism career in 2004 as a statehouse reporter for Gannett New Jersey.

She covered communities along the Jersey Shore, and won investigative reporting awards for writing about police brutality in Seaside Park.

Lauren graduated from the College of New Jersey. She grew up in Ringwood, and now calls Waldwick home. She believes everyone has a story to tell, and she’d love to hear yours.
