Lara Parker is a writer who lives in Los Angeles but comes from a small town of just 900 people in Indiana. She grew up living 45 minutes away from the closest Target, yet still survived. She began writing in college around the time of her diagnosis with endometriosis and hasn’t stopped writing about her vagina since. She’s currently a senior editor at BuzzFeed, where her essays about endometriosis and her other health conditions have garnered millions of views. When she isn’t writing about or talking about her vagina problems, she’s watching Bravo or Teen Mom and trying to teach her dog how to hug her on command.
