Lauren Kondas ~ Class of 2019

Lauren is a young and eager woman starting her journey in the industry. Her passion for pastry began as a child watching her grandmother bake, and heightened when she attended Ocean County Vocational School during her junior and senior year of high school. She went on to study Pastry Arts at Walnut Hill College in Philadelphia, PA. Her time there gave her the opportunity to work as an intern under a world-class chef, chocolatiers, and small bakeries within the city, to participate in volunteer work, be a hand selected member of their Student Leader Development Institute and gain exquisite knowledge in the art of baking and managing. She graduated with her Bachelors of Science Degree in July of 2021 as valedictorian of her class.

She is a proud member of ICON Hospitality, helping lead the Luscious and Sweet Team. She is excited to learn, bring her passion, innovative ideas and carry out the culture of ICON.
