how it all started


Lauren Kent, Founder

Lauren Kent is a Chicago native who has lived on the south side her entire life. As a mom to three active boys, she found that she was constantly looking for new activities and ways to challenge and enrich them as humans. She challenged herself to not only find new, fun activities for her family but to find ones that were inexpensive, too. Bottom line, Lauren became very good at planning itineraries for her family; even on a short notice (i.e. the morning of). Planning excursions brought so much joy that she thought to herself Why not bring this joy to other people? Her passion for planning led her here: wanting to create fun experiences for people like you. From there, Planned. was born.
