Student Veterans of America
As a leader in the passage of H.R. 3218, the Forever GI Bill, Lauren cemented her reputation as a pragmatic and consensus-driven leader in policy, and in this country. Having been selected as a Top Lobbyist this past year by The Hill, it was clear that Lauren was making waves; she doesn’t do this by appearing on TV, or making bold plays on social media. Lauren is a shrewd negotiator that appeals to people’s better intuitions. This was especially evident this past year as the implementation of the Forever GI Bill faced near-impossible struggles. After warning VA months in advance, she worked with them to fix the problems. She rolled up her sleeves to deliver a consensus-driven solution-oriented discussion, and it worked.
