Lauren Barrett

Assistant Director of Life Design: Public Health Studies and Allied Health Professions

Lauren has found that her life’s purpose orbits around a few central concepts: exploring the wilderness, helping others, creative expression through writing and persistent curiosity. In her role as a Life Design Educator, she has explored the broad, dynamic field of public health and all of the possibilities it holds for her students. Lauren’s background in outdoor education, counseling, emerging media and neurodiversity have helped her cultivate a unique relationship with the Public Health Studies Undergraduate Advising Program. Additionally, her highly collaborative nature drives her to pursue interesting methods of connecting people, places and ideas. If Lauren could tell her college-self anything, she’d say that the path is far from linear. In fact, a winding pathway full of unexpected insights and remarkable views makes a much more exciting adventure to take.
