Hi everyone I am so excited to be here. I come from a background of education and criminal justice. I have a beautiful daughter named Colby. I enjoy traveling to different places with my family and studying different cultures. In 2020 I was nominated as an Oklahoma’s Top 20 under 2 teacher. One fun fact about me is that in college I studied abroad in Greece for two weeks for a history class.

I do the work I do because I want to have an impact on the youth that are our next leaders. These students will be living and operating in a world that my children will be in. If I can assist with making students achieve success I want to do that. No matter what success looks like to them. I want to meet them where they are and help get them to the finish line.

In the blink of an eye, the little girl with snails in her pockets and dirt in her hair went from running through the creeks behind her childhood home to walking across the Oklahoma State University stage to receive a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources with a major of Environmental Science.

However, Lauren’s adventure truly began after moving across the country to gain experience in conservation just an hour south of the iconic Glacier National Park, after accepting a position as a Big Sky Watershed Corps Member through Americorps. This position combined a deep devotion for service with a passion for the conservation of our natural resources. During her time in this position, she completed research for the USDA, NRCS, Western Montana Conservation Districts, Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes, Pheasants Forever, Ducks Unlimited, Flathead Lake Biological Station, The University of Montana and NASA. Research topics varied wildly but mainly focused on native wildflower biodiversity and pollinator habitat rehabilitation, aquatic invasive species PCR tracking, and the study of agricultural upgrades to determine improvement of resource usage.

What really made an impact on the direction of Lauren’s career was the development of Lake County Conservation District’s outreach program which delivered STEAM curriculum to 3,641 students and adults in 2.5 years. After Lauren moved home during the Pandemic, she began pursuing a career in STEAM education thanks to her time at LCCD. After beginning her educational career at Discovery Lab creating curriculum, training educators, and running day of programming for their partnership with Tulsa Public Schools, Lauren is excited to transition into the classroom fulltime teaching Environmental Science and Chemistry. She is passionate about sparking a love of natural resources and applied science in her students just as her high school Enivronmental Science teacher did for her.

When Lauren isn’t at work she enjoys hiking, camping, taking pictures of every flower and fungi she sees, finding cool rocks and crystals, practicing yoga and meditation, and being outdoors in general. When the weather doesn’t allow her to be outside, Lauren also loves watching competition shows with her husband, Tyler, and making bets on the winners (loser has to clean up dinner!) Their pup Daisy is never far behind, especially to “help” clean up the food.

I used to live in Minnesota, and now I’m always hot. After leaving my home state, I moved to Missouri thinking I wanted to be a journalist. It only took me a few years of covering local school board meetings to realize that I couldn’t sit on the sidelines when it came to the challenges facing education. I moved to Tulsa and have fallen in love with the community of families, students, and educators I get to work alongside every day. High schoolers are my favorite people, and I absolutely love watching them grow into unique individuals and free thinkers ready to tackle the world.

Outside of school, I have been spending an exorbitant amount of time restoring a 1910 craftsman home with my girlfriend. It gives me an opportunity to learn new things, shop for vintage items, and spend endless hours on Pinterest looking for inspiration. I’m often cooking soup, eating soup, and sharing soup with the people I love. I love to travel, drink coffee, and find excuses to cancel plans and stay home with my dogs.

I’m a Colorado native who married his college sweetheart, with whom I have three kids. We live in Broken Arrow and I’m proud to call Oklahoma my home. My favorite author is Cormac McCarthy, my favorite band is Manchester Orchestra, and my favorite hobby is kettlebell sport.

Teaching is my calling. I am deeply gratified when I see a person learn something new. I especially take joy in seeing young people gain confidence in their communication skills. Reading and writing have been invaluable in my own life, and I want to help students to see them in the same way.
