Associate Director of Housing

With Breakthrough since 2009

Lauren came to Breakthrough shortly after earning a bachelor’s degree in Sociology with a Health and Human Services concentration from DePaul University to fill a case manager position at the Women’s Center. While in the position, she went on to get a master’s degree in Human Services – Executive Leadership from Liberty University. Her favorite part of working at Breakthrough is the relationships with guests and coworkers. Lauren says Breakthrough feels like working with family and close friends, and during difficult times, the Breakthrough team has rallied around her. She believes that this is more than a job or a career; this is a place to serve and be served. In her free time, Lauren enjoys reading and lazy days with her sons.
