Growing up in Woodbridge, VA Lauren Augustine considered herself a “fifth-generation DMV local” and has long aspired to complete her education at Georgetown.
Augustine is a proud first generation college graduate and earned her bachelor’s degree in International Relations and Russian Language from Virginia Tech. Following graduation, she joined the Army and flew unmanned aerial vehicles for the First Infantry Division in Kansas and Iraq.
After returning to the U.S., Augustine spent nearly a decade in the government affairs world advocating on behalf of veterans, their families, and the services and benefits provided by the VA and Department of Defense.
As she begins her McCourt journey Augustine is looking forward to gaining some energy and excitement thanks to new ideas and a new network, the discomfort of starting something new, challenging her thinking, and meeting new people.
