HI! I'M LAUREN.
I started my career as a consultant for the World Bank, where I led marketing campaigns and reports for programs focused on disaster recovery and entrepreneurship. After that, I supported the national expansion of Startup in Residence, an accelerator that connects startups with city governments to develop civic technology products.
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.
