Testimonials

"My staff (at Sioux Trail Elementary) have been sharing about Headway's training sessions. Teachers come back from the trainings excited to try new strategies and they have new understanding regarding mental health issues. This is making a difference in their classrooms and helping them relate to students when they are struggling."

Lauren joined Headway in August, 2016 and has worked in the human services field since 2013. She recently earned her Master’s degree in Clinical Social Work from the University of St. Thomas – St. Catherine University. She has experience working with children and families in early childhood education, pre-K special education and also with children K-5 in a day treatment setting. “I want to empower students to discover their individual strengths and help them to implement new ways of coping that can be utilized across home, school, and community settings,” she says.

Outside of work, Lauren enjoys being active outdoors, taking her dog for a walk, attending hot yoga, and spending time with her family and friends.
