Get to know Lauren.

Health Industry sector experience

Health Services

Best early career advice received

Create a path, but don’t write detailed directions. It’s great to have a vision, but try to be flexible and open to experiences that may not align to your initial plan. You never know where they’ll lead.

Favorite Vynamic event

All Star Party! It's always a fun, festive event where so much is celebrated.

Professional passion

I really enjoy strategic work; tackling big, complex challenges, distilling them into actionable themes, and piecing it all together in a way that drives positive change. I also love all things Culture. Navigating ways of working, engagement, and organizational dynamics is always fascinating to me.

Why the health industry

After a personal life experience, I left my corporate career to pursue a career in Medicine. Though my program and clinical experience were invaluable, I decided to change course and instead leverage this experience to help improve health operations after witnessing the opportunities first-hand.

Favorite travel destination

Italy. My family is Italian, and so I have always loved the culture (and food, of course!). I studied abroad in Florence and had the opportunity to explore different parts of the country. I love all parts of Italy, but I would say that southern Italy is my favorite!

I'm certified as

A yoga instructor. I got my 200-hour certification at Core Power Yoga. It was a humbling experience!

My family

My husband, Bryan, our daughter, Olivia, and dog, Bella

My Vynamic color

Passion Purple is the color of The Kicks4Chris Foundation, a non-profit organization that I co-founded in 2015 to raise money for Penn Medicine’s Abramson Cancer Center.

Where I unwind
