Lauren grew up in Centennial, CO and attended Littleton Public Schools, where she developed a lifetime love of learning. After graduating from the University of Arizona with a degree in Political Science, Lauren moved to Doha, Qatar and taught English to young children. This experience allowed her to interact with a variety of cultures and develop a broader worldview.
Prior to joining Stand, Lauren worked with Jeani Frickey, Stand Colorado’s Executive Director, as a Public Policy Analyst. The lobbying firm represented a diverse client base with a variety of interests, including education. Lauren was able to see members of the divided Colorado state legislature work on contentious education policies, and stand behind higher academic standards and assessments.
Lauren loves to spend her free time playing tennis and enjoying the beautiful Rocky Mountains.
