She is enthusiastic about the Falcon Zone vision to empower learners through elevated instruction, enhanced opportunities, and engaging environments.

A Midwestern girl at heart, Lauren enjoys living in Colorado for the fresh mountain air and a plethora of outdoor experiences. She spends her time connecting with friends, traveling, staying up to date on educational research, and working with her hands by remodeling, building, or crafting. She also serves the community as a Court Appointed Special Advocate and youth leader.

Lauren is grateful for the opportunity to serve the Falcon community. Go Falcons!
