Lauren Milord brings her belief that a learner’s early educational experiences can make or break their pathway to STEM to her role at DreamUp, where she focuses on building expanding access to space-based educational opportunities. As Director of Programs, Lauren oversees and promotes DreamUp's catalog of offerings ranging from STEM kits to student Space Station experiment programs. Prior to joining DreamUp, Lauren was Community Engagement Specialist in the Office of Engagement at Boston Public Schools where she engaged all sectors of the BPS community in conversations about district policy changes and ensured that community-based and faith-based organizations partnered successfully with BPS schools. Lauren earned her Bachelor of Arts in International Relations with a concentration in International Security at Tufts University. When she’s not inspiring dreamers, you can find Lauren Irish dancing wherever a good wooden floor can be found.
