Background 

Lauren Garabedian Ruff joined the firm in 2012 after a successful career in retail management for the Williams Sonoma Corporation. Much of the reason Lauren decided to make the career move into the accounting industry was to continue the legacy built by her father, Dale, for making a difference in the community and servicing our clients at the highest level. Lauren worked closely with Sonja Fabbian to build and grow Payroll by The Garabedian Group and is passionate about our firm making an impact in the payroll space. The most rewarding part of her career is interacting with our clients and making their lives better by doing what we do best, so they can focus on what they do best and what matters most to them.
