Director of Nutrition, Quality Assurance

With a master's degree in public health from the University of California, Los Angeles, and a bachelor's degree in foods and nutrition from San Diego State University, Lauren brings knowledge and expertise in her role as Director of Nutrition, Quality Assurance.

Lauren reviews nutrition analyses for thousands of menu items from the diverse roster of Healthy Dining’s participating restaurants and also oversees allergen and gluten identification projects.
