Prior to joining Nous, Lauren spent six years working in management roles at the Victorian Department of Health and Human Services, including in the areas of child abuse prevention, health system design, and access to alternative medicines. 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 has sat on the Human Research Ethics Committee at the Royal Women’s Hospital since early 2014.
Lauren 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.
Outside of work, Lauren can be found playing basketball and netball (quite badly), and building pillow forts (quite well) with her husband and two young children.
