Lauren Askarnia

Wine Ambassador

Lauren is an Idaho native and Boise State Alum, where she studied History and Literature. Lauren originally had a teaching career in mind, but instead got bit by the Hospitality bug and hasn’t looked back! Lauren first fell in love with Telaya as a guest, and after several afternoons on the river with us, she soon realized she wanted to spend every day here. Some of Lauren’s favorite things include the Sawtooth Mountains, Italian gelato, and Telaya’s 2018 Scoria Vineyards Malbec. When she’s not working or drinking wine, you might find her exploring a trail with her husband, Max, or spending time in the garden with their flowers and furbabies. Lauren is so excited to join the Telaya team and have a career that combines the things she values most: good food & wine, hospitality, and hard work!
