Good Girl Chronicles

About

Lauren Hope is a former journalist with over five years’ experience in television news.  After surviving a suicide attempt in 2014, Hope’s entire life fell apart. She left her television career, gained close to 100 pounds, and soon became homeless. 

During her struggles, Lauren found comfort in sharing her mental health journey on her relationship blog called Good Girl Chronicles. Those blogs led to invitations to speak all over the state, and then an opportunity to people struggling with drug addiction as a peer specialist. Hope’s courage in sharing her story transformed her life and purpose. 

Her popular blog is now a storytelling business that gives ordinary people a platform to share their extraordinary stories of hope through blogs, events, and speech coaching. Hope is also a Registered Peer Recovery Specialist, board member of the Virginia Chapter of the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, motivational speaker, speech coach. She is changing the lives of others through bold storytelling, and mental health advocacy.

When she is not producing storytelling shows or writing her memoir; she enjoys playing with her Emotional Support dog, Boo. Lauren Hope aspires to publish a memoir about her journey back from a mental health crisis, and travel the country with her story.
