Prior to entering Parliament, Lauren spent more than twenty years volunteering and working with communities in Australia and abroad, leading remote housing and homelessness projects right through to managing multi-million dollar nationwide programs that trained healthcare workers, improved income generation opportunities for regional communities and increased the number of kids with disabilities that attended school.
The opportunity to have a bigger impact, making real improvements to people’s lives, prompted her to run for Parliament.
The main passions and priorities Lauren has as a member of Parliament are to ensure that development is community-centred, that families have what they need to build a good life - including local jobs and good transport, and that people with disability have every opportunity.
Member, Public Accounts and Estimates Committee since February 2023
