Lauren Brener

Lauren Brener, a native New Yorker, received her BA in Communication Studies from the University of Massachusetts, which she attended as a first generation college student.  Since graduating, Lauren has made the West Coast her home, where she worked in medical administration and then as a manufacturer’s representative in the garment industry for 21 years.  Ready for a career change, Lauren happily joined Students Rising Above in 2007 to develop an internship program so that hard-working SRA students will be career-ready when they graduate college.  Lauren is endlessly grateful to the invaluable community of employers who offer internships to SRA’s deserving college students and career opportunities to our extraordinary graduates.
