Chemical Engineering, Texas A&M University
Lauren was raised in Burleson, Texas and went on to get her Bachelor’s degree in chemical engineering at Texas A&M University due to her love of math, chemistry, and the Aggie spirit. During her time as an undergraduate student at Texas A&M she was involved in a wide variety of volunteer organizations, spent two summers interning with BASF, and was involved in research that crossed the bridge between microbiology and chemical engineering. While she loved the science behind chemical engineering, she began to realize that the typical chemical engineering career did not seem to be the right fit for her. She felt increasingly drawn towards medicine as her college career went on, and she made the decision to go back to school to pursue to her passion shortly after graduation. While taking classes and working and volunteering in the medical field, she knew she had made the right decision. While working and volunteering, Lauren noticed that there seemed to be a lot of opportunity for growth and improvement in the medical field. When she heard about the EnMed program, she knew it would be the perfect way to pursue her passion for medicine and apply her engineering knowledge to help solve the challenges facing the medical field. In her free time Lauren enjoys traveling, hiking, running, reading, and spending time with friends and family.
