Lauren Angat

Employer: TD Bank

Job Title: Business Development Associate

Committee Member On: Personal & Professional Development 

What she likes about work: 

I've been working at TD Bank for 5 years and transferred into a new role as a Business Development Associate for Small Business Administration (SBA) when moving to Hartford. I perform financial analyses by completing narratives, workbooks, and other documentation necessary for a loan application to the credit management team. I like learning the SBA process and understanding the procedure on the sales side as my goal is to become a Business Development Officer. 

What she thinks about the Hartford region: 
I love Hartford and this region for its historical landmarks that makes its skyline. It's also the different culture and people that make the downtown area unique and like no other.

Her favorite thing about HYPE:
My favorite thing about HYPE are the relationships that you develop and the new people you get to meet. Also, being a part of a committee has allowed me to grow professionally and personally. Recently moving from Miami to Hartford was a huge change and being able to network with young professionals have greatly impacted me.

Her hobbies and interests outside of work: 
I am an avid traveler. You will either see me traveling or planning for a future trip. I've accomplished my goal of traveling to 7 continents before 27 which consisted of visiting almost 20 countries. While traveling I love trying new foods, meeting new people along the way, trying new things, and breathtaking views.
