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 Biology 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 for the last year and a half. Lauren truly loves all of the students, staff and critters that call Fusion home and is excited to bring her Fusion experience and culture to the Montclair campus!
When not at Fusion, Lauren enjoys spending time outdoors with her family and her vast array of animals. She loves camping, hiking and all things nature. Lauren still loves teaching science 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.
