Meet the Team: Lauren Restivo


Lauren Restivo joined the team here at Kaufman in August 2013. As a Community Ambassador at The Gramercy New Albany, Lauren truly embraces our philosophy of inspired living, and aspires to make a difference.

From encouraging residents to take advantage of on-site amenities to coordinating community events to bring residents together, Lauren appreciates the opportunity to touch the lives of those who live at The Gramercy New Albany.

Lauren is passionate about giving back to the community, and encourages residents to join her in volunteering with our partners at Besa, a local nonprofit that organizes volunteer opportunities throughout Columbus. In fact, Lauren recently joined the Besa Volunteer Lead Team.

“Volunteering has made such a positive impact on my life,” she says. “All you need to do is sign up and attend. It’s convenient, easy, and a great way to give back!”

Lauren is a Columbus native, and appreciates The Gramercy New Albany’s location. “The New Albany landscape is beautiful in all seasons,” she says. “I love the design of our building exteriors, which I would best describe as modern with a funky barnyard twist. Our interiors are eclectic and modern, which really captures the essence of The Gramercy”

In her free time, Lauren enjoys cooking, attending concerts, and traveling. She even spent a semester in Rome before graduating from the University of Kentucky.

Lauren also makes wellness a priority, staying active with hot yoga, strength training and snowboarding in addition to training for the Cap City Half Marathon with some of her fellow Community Ambassadors.
