Lauren graduated from UW-Madison with a Bachelor’s Degree in Biology and a Certificate in Global Health. Her coursework brought her as far as the country of Ecuador where she discovered her passion to promote food security as an entry point to break the poverty cycle. In between schooling she spent time interning with Sheboygan’s Department of Public Health as well as the SCIO Farmers Market. Now that she has officially moved back to the Sheboygan area, she is grateful to be able to use her knowledge and Sheboygan connections to like-minded people to give back to the city she grew up in. Lauren has a deep belief that health care and hunger relief organizations are natural allies that need to work together to create healthy communities. She is currently a proud member of the Sheboygan Activity and Nutrition Coalition.
