Head of School
Lauren was born and raised in northern New Jersey. She has always had an aptitude for science and a love for all living things. Her experiences in the field and love for learning led her to become the first science teacher at Fusion Morristown. After a short time, Lauren became the Math and Science Department Head for Fusion Morristown and then the Assistant Director, a role she occupied until March of 2017 when she took on the role of Head of School for Fusion Montclair. Lauren genuinely loves all students, families, staff, and critters that call Fusion home. Lauren holds a master’s degree in Educational Leadership and a certificate in Educational Assessment.
When not at Fusion, Lauren enjoys spending time with her husband and three children – Annabelle, Owen, and Riley. She also spends a great deal of time with her animals (she has about 15!). She loves camping, hiking and all things nature. Lauren still loves teaching science (especially Biology!) and continues to teach a science class when she can. Beyond the classroom, she loves her role supporting people wherever and whenever she can, not only academically but emotionally and socially as well.
