Lauren graduated cum laude from law school, passed the bar, and is now an associate at Ashby and Geddes law firm in Wilmington, DE.  

After St. Anne's, Lauren graduated from Caesar Rodney High School in three years. Lauren went on to the University of Virginia where she studied History, Foreign Affairs and Italian. She was accepted into the Distinguished Majors Program for history and graduated with Distinction.

As a college student, Lauren worked at the United States Senate in Washington, D.C. for Senator Tom Carper and for the Presidential Recordings Program. She also studied abroad in Siena, Italy where she became fluent in Italian.  

Lauren attended Villanova University School of Law after graduating from UVA and spent her first summer in law school working for an international law firm in Italy.  After graduating with cum laude honors and passing the bar in 2014, she married her husband, Eugenio, in Puglia, Italy.  Lauren and Eugenio are now settled outside of Newark.    

"St. Anne's gave me the invaluable lesson of seeking out challenges, both academically and professionally.  At St. Anne's, I learned specific study techniques that I attribute to my success in both high school and college. After the academic rigor of St. Anne's, I sought out academic challenges and decided to attend college a year early.  St. Anne's also sparked the interest I have in learning about diverse cultures. My classes on world history and our weekly chapels focusing on different religions gave me a strong base that have benefited my studies and international travel greatly.

"While I only had two years at St. Anne's, it was an experience that immensely influenced my academic trajectory. St. Anne's is more than a school, it is a community where the teachers truly care about the well being of the students."
