Lauren is a 2009 graduate of Coram Deo Academy. She has been an interesting career path in politics. We are thankful that we have people in Washington DC that believe, "I’m not sure how one couldn’t affect the world for the better if he or she employs ethical servant leadership and wise thinking."
Tarrant County College, University of Texas at Arlington
Bachelor of Arts in Public Relations with emphasis in Leadership Analysis
Like most of us who become prey to “Potomac Fever,” I began my venture in D.C. as an intern. During my time as a Bill Archer Fellow I became familiar with the Republican National Committee’s digital initiative and joined the team as a social media analyst and community manager during the 2014 cycle. I now work with the National Republican Congressional Committee as a Digital Financial Strategist.
WHAT DREW YOU TO YOUR CURRENT CAREER/POSITION?
Unlike most in Washington D.C., politics is not my lifeblood. I came to the Capitol because it’s the hub of our nation’s leadership and the application and analysis of such in a high-profile environment fascinates me. I went particularly to the GOP because I’m intrigued by the many opportunities for artistic story-telling and brand management.
WHAT IMPACT DO YOU HOPE TO MAKE IN THE WORLD IN CONTEXT OF CDA'S MISSION TO BE AN ETHICAL SERVANT LEADER AND WISE THINKER WHO WILL SHAPE CULTURE FOR THE GLORY OF GOD?
I’m not sure how one couldn’t affect the world for the better if he or she employs ethical servant leadership and wise thinking. My desire is to employ that framework no matter what the day-to-day looks like.
WHAT ARE YOUR FUTURE GOALS/ASPIRATIONS?
I’m considering joining the GOP presidential candidate’s campaign in 2016 with eyes on working in the White House. Depending on the outcome of the election, I’ll think more about furthering my education either stateside or abroad in the area of digital media and film. However, my immediate goal is challenging Jimmy Fallon to a lip sync battle (and winning, of course).
