HI! I'M LAUREN.
I'm a senior associate at Acumen, a nonprofit impact investment fund. I design educational content for social innovators and find new ways to improve our learner experience.
Previously, I supported the national expansion of Startup in Residence, an accelerator program that connects startups with city governments to develop civic technology products. I started my career as a consultant for the World Bank, where I led marketing campaigns and impact reports for programs focused on disaster recovery and entrepreneurship in developing countries.
I have degrees in international relations and economics from the Johns Hopkins University School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS) and the University of Virginia. I also received a Fulbright grant to teach English and study Chinese in Taiwan.
