    Lauren began her career at Morgan Stanley in corporate headquarters where she oversaw key initiatives focused on digital strategy, expense management, and top line revenue growth. Through this experience, she developed an intimate understanding of the wide range of products, services, and resources that Morgan Stanley offers to help clients achieve their goals.

    Prior to working at Morgan Stanley, Lauren was selected from approximately 48,000 applicants nationwide to serve in the highly acclaimed Teach For America service corps. Through this program, she committed to teach for 2 years in an economically deprived, rural region to close the educational achievement gap. After two years of teaching 7th and 8th Grade Math and Science in the Mississippi Delta, she left the classroom and joined the Teach For America National Admissions team where she focused on recruiting, training, and developing teachers.

    Lauren graduated summa cum laude from Boston College with an honors B.A. in International Politics & Economics. She was a recruited member of the #1 nationally ranked Boston College Varsity Sailing team and received First Team All-American honors for her role in the team's two National titles. Since college, she has represented the New York Yacht Club in team racing events and competed in numerous national and international regattas, most recently qualifying to compete in the 2016 Etchells World Championships in Cowes, England.
