About Lauren

Lauren moved to Colorado in 2010, where she spent her first few years working in animal care and research. After deciding to go back to school to finish her BS, she soon found herself working in a QA/QC lab at a local brewery for almost 6 years. This position gave her the foundation for working successfully and efficiently in a laboratory setting, while also sparking her interest in microbiological principles and practices. Drawing on prior experience working with animals and an appetite for investigation, she was able to switch paths and began working as a Research Associate in the VandeWoude lab. In her spare time she enjoys running, attempting gluten-free baking, and exploring life with her wonderful family.


B.S. Chemistry - Forensic Science Emphasis, University of Northern Colorado, 2014
