Lauren Annes is a third-year engineering student at the University of Michigan. She believes that her Computer Science and Industrial Engineering
coursework is teaching her a way of thinking and problem solving that will be fundamental to her future, whether or not she chooses to practice engineering.
She is intrigued by the unsolvable and firmly believes that there is a morally sound solution to every obstacle encountered. Lauren is captivated by complex issues and is willing and eager to work hard to come up with solid and lasting answers – this is probably why entrepreneurship excites her so much.
Lauren has spent her last two summers interning at Motorola Solutions, Inc. as a software engineer. She has added capabilities to the radios that first responders use every day, worldwide. Lauren is also the treasurer of Chi Omega Fraternity, where she created and manages the budget for the 240 members.
As a member of the Society of Women Engineers, she enjoys participating in outreach programs. She shares her love of STEM with elementary school and middle school girls, hoping that the early exposure will excite the younger students.
In her free time, Lauren enjoys waterskiing, scuba diving and being outside. She loves to learn and try new things, spend time with her family and friends and to travel. Lauren can be reached by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
