“We are really looking forward to raising our family here." - Lauren Thomson
Lauren Thomson, her husband and three children moved to Medicine Hat from Edmonton at the end of August 2020, when her husband found a mechanical engineering job in the city.
The move brought them closer to family located in Saskatchewan and Medicine Hat, and the community itself further encourages the Thomson’s to adventure within and outside of the city.
Over the Christmas holidays, the family drove the 45 minutes to Elkwater in Cypress Hills National Park for Thomson’s birthday, and the family looks to plan more trips out there during the summers.
The amount of walking trails excites Thomson, and she and her family take advantage of them often by foot and bike.
Thomson found herself a position at the Medicine Hat News and says she loves learning and telling the stories about community members that are doing neat and interesting things in the city.
