Lauren graduated from University of California, Davis with a BS in Ecological Management and Restoration and a minor in Civil Engineering – Sustainability in the Built Environment. She is originally from the beach cities of Los Angeles County and is joining CivicSpark to further pursue her passion to incorporate natural processes and resources in cities. From this fellowship, she hopes to gain a better insight on what planning with a social and environmental justice lens is like, as well as to gain skills needed to help local communities achieve their sustainability goals. After the fellowship, Lauren would like to work in the fields of urban planning, urban ecology, and landscape architecture.
