Introduce yourself:

Hi there, I’m Lauren! I first began assisting high school seniors with the college admissions and applications process while serving as a volunteer teacher intern with Breakthrough Collaborative, a national program dedicated to making college accessible for first-generation students.  As an undergrad at The George Washington University in Washington, D.C., I served as a Writing Center Consultant following a competitive interview process. I worked with undergraduate, graduate, medical, law, and PhD writers on various projects, dissertations, and theses, and received the highest anonymous feedback scores among all clients surveyed in the spring of 2017. As a Communication major with minors in Human Services & Social Justice and Journalism, I am passionate about forging connections with people.  I seek to facilitate their creative development and show them how to build confidence in their writing skills. I live for lightbulb/“Aha!” moments, and look forward to helping you find yours!


Fun Facts:

  • I have a strangely high pain tolerance- I got all four of my wisdom teeth removed while I was wide awake, with just a small shot to numb me!
  • While attending GW, I worked for four years at Georgetown Cupcake, and got to serve cupcakes to international diplomats who would shut the whole store down with their security agents in fancy suits.
  • I can sing the alphabet backwards faster than I can sing it in the correct direction.


Pop Quiz:

If I were a dean of admissions this is an essay prompt that I'd want students to answer: What do you want the world to look like in 20 years? In your opinion, how do we make your vision a reality?

What do you spend too much time doing? Decorating (and re-decorating!) the same areas in my house!

Which historical figure would you like to meet? Harriet Tubman! To me, she exemplifies courage, empathy, and determination-- all traits I find to be incredibly valuable.
