Meet Our Executive Director

With a lifelong passion for child and community development, Lauren is deeply inspired by Bright Horizons’ commitment to high quality care and education and is honored to be joining the Kansas St. family! 
 
Lauren’s journey advocating for children and families began when she joined AmeriCorps working in preschool classrooms with underserved communities in San Francisco during her college years. This incredibly fulfilling experience inspired her to study Child and Adolescent Development at San Francisco State University then leading her to become a preschool teacher. 

Over time, she gained further leadership experience as a site supervisor, director, education specialist, and mentor-coach for teachers.  With over a decade of leadership experience, Lauren is a passionate advocate for children, families, and teachers with strong conviction in the power of open communication, nurturing relationships, play-based curriculum, empowered mentorship, and data-driven programming. 

Lauren’s favorite thing about children is their innate curiosity lending them to become fully competent problem-solvers. She is inspired by children’s resilience, their natural tendency for inclusion, and their ability to live moment-to-moment. When Lauren is not at the center she’s chasing around her incredibly busy (but oh so sweet!) 22-month-old son, Remy!

Bringing Our Curriculum to Life

“I’m not worried about her now, and I’ve never been worried about her. That center has become family to us. You never think someone is going to care as much about your child as you do. But I really think these teachers do. Their hearts are gold.”

quotes

Dr. Julia Rosebush - Pediatric Infectious Disease Specialist

“There’s not a minute I worry. I never say ‘I hope she’s ok;’ because I know she’s ok. She’s happy when I drop her off, and happy when I pick her up.”

quotes

Maloise Jean -nurse practitioner

“Knowing my children are being cared for by the amazing caregivers at Bright Horizons has dramatically decreased my fears. I know my kids are not only safe, but happy and learning.”

quotes

Dr. Robyn Howarth -pediatric neuro psychologist

“They’ve really been very receptive to hearing our ongoing feedback as we navigate this together. The staff has done an amazing job. It puts my mind at ease knowing that the center has remained a safe place of structure and normalcy.”
