An educator at heart, Lauren has a gift for turning complex ideas and goals into step-by-step action plans. She works with partners in large education systems to implement plans and improve student outcomes; she also designs curricula for internal and external trainings on the core principles of delivery, ensuring colleagues and partners have the skills they need to be successful in their work. She always ends meetings on time.
Lauren's work with partners focuses on applying Deliverology to U.S. education systems in order to improve outcomes for students across the P-20 continuum. She is currently working with Hawai`i P-20 Partnerships for Education and University of Hawai`i Community Colleges to plan, implement, and monitor progress on key initiatives to increase college enrollment in the state; she is also supporting Teach For America as they unpack their ambitious 10-year impact goals and plan for delivery at the regional level.
Internally, Lauren leads DA's strategy, monitoring, and continuous improvement efforts – applying Deliverology to our own work. She facilitates firm-wide knowledge management and communication, ensuring we learn from one another regularly and efficiently to bring the best of our global experience to each and every client project. She previously designed and managed DA's internal onboarding and ongoing training programs, ensuring our colleagues are masters of Deliverology and are well-prepared to serve clients effectively, efficiently, and empathetically.
Prior to joining DA, Lauren helped more than 40 education systems around the United States - including state, local, and nonprofit organizations - plan and deliver improved outcomes for students. Lauren led strategic planning and continuous improvement for Fulton County Schools, a district of about 100,000 students in Atlanta, GA, and taught high school social studies through Teach for America.
