Prior to joining Nous, Lauren spent six years working in management roles at the Victorian Department of Health and Human Services; including driving large-scale, whole-of-government initiatives where there were health, environmental issues and significant cross-departmental cross implications at play. Before that, she worked primarily in academia, producing research at the University of NSW (UNSW) and lecturing at the University of Technology Sydney.
Lauren is passionate about healthcare and patient rights and sat on the Human Research Ethics Committee at the Royal Women’s Hospital for six years. She holds a Master of Public Health, a Bachelor of Science (psychology) and a Bachelor of Arts (French) from UNSW. She also holds a Certificate of English Language Teaching to Adults from Cambridge University.
Lauren can be found playing basketball and netball (quite badly) and building pillow forts (quite well) with her husband and two young children.
