Welcome!

Hello! I’m Lauren. I work for Banner Health as a Systems Coordinators Senior for the Clinical Performance Improvement - Population Health Services Organization department for the insurance / health plans division. Before joining Banner, I worked for the University of Arizona (UA) as an Instructional Designer, Project Manager, Program Coordinator Senior, and Program Coordinator.

I earned my Master of Science in Educational Technology from the UA in December 2017. Additionally, I earned a Graduate Certificate in Public Management from Northern Arizona University in August 2015 and a Bachelor of General Studies from the UA in December 2013. In addition to my university awarded degrees, I am also licensed through the Project Management Institute as a Certified Associate in Project Management (Dec 2015 – Dec 2020).

In my free time I enjoy sewing (quilting and embroidery), going to sporting events (hockey, football, and baseball), and spending time with my family.

3.) In addition to the PMP certification, I am also pursuing the Certified Scrum Master certification through ScrumAlliance.org. I am registered for a 2 day live online class. This will run on April 22nd-23rd (Happy birthday to me ~April 22nd).

In 2020 I will be starting my second bachelor's degree! I will be pursuing a BS in Accounting through Western Governors University.
Also, my CAPM certification will be expiring in December 2020, so I am planning on pursuing an upgrade to the PMP certificate through the Project Management Institute.
