Lauren is a Technologist working within Healthcare, a sector she fell into but now loves, with experience in ICU and Theatre works. She takes pride in supporting people through the design and delivery of projects.
What’s your favourite project you’ve worked on to date?
Although challenging as my first healthcare project, working on, and delivering the GICU (General Intensive Care Unit) at Southampton General Hospital was an amazing experience. The difference it has made to both staff and patients, tear of joy from the nursing staff and delivering it during COVID was a huge learning experience and one that will shape my career going forward.
If you weren’t in this career, what would you be?
I have always loved crime drama (think Midsomer Murders, Lewis and Law and Order) so I think I would have quite enjoyed a career in the Police.
Love the Serial Podcast by the New York Times. Again, feeding into my love of True Crime and Crime Drama (don’t panic I don’t have any crime tendencies!)
Best book you’ve read?
This is Going to Hurt by Adam Kay. Makes you laugh, cry, and reflect. Highly recommend. It was recently made into a TV series which was just as fab.
What is your proudest moment?
I was the first in my family (along with my stepbrother) to go to university and to see the look on my Mum’s face when I walked across that stage was amazing! All that I had dreamed of and worked towards came together in that moment.
