Lauren Lamoly | Educator, Activist, Novice-Runner, Coffee Enthusiast
Lauren Lamoly is a through-and-through Bostonian who recently returned to her home commonwealth after years of schooling and traveling. She attended Lynchburg College in Virginia for her bachelor’s degree in English and San Diego State University for her masters in American Literature. Lauren taught composition, rhetoric, and literature at San Diego State University; she currently works as a high school English teacher in Lexington, Massachusetts.
In Lauren’s non-academic life, she worked for Starbucks Coffee for twelve years in varying roles from barista to store manager to corporate educator. In November of 2012, Lauren became the first director of communications for The American Military Partner Association, an organization committed to education, advocacy, and support for LGBT military families, and she continues to work within the LGBT movement.
In her spare time, Lauren fearlessly ascends stages, in fantastic cowgirl boots, to sing along with celebrities at their own shows. You can find her running on various bike paths in the Boston area, finagling her way onto the fields of professional sports teams, searching the area for a karaoke venue to share her talent with the locals, playing trivia, line dancing, painting pottery, or engaging in a competitive…anything.
Lauren is excited for her first summer with Blueprint pre-college programs. She will be the program director during the 2015 summer program at the University of Virginia.
