Lauren and I have worked on multiple nonprofit consulting projects, helping organizations decide which data system is right for them. She is highly organized and is a clear and concise presenter. Lauren also excels at asking questions in an open, yet thought-provoking way that prompts clients to open up.
I've also appreciated Lauren's leadership in convening Consultants for Good - a local meetup group of nonprofit consultants seeking to learn from one another. I've seen similar groups get stymied in defining a purpose and a reason for being. Meanwhile Lauren has organized a series of helpful guest speakers and facilitated discussions that help us shift our mindset about our clients. And all of this as a volunteer!
Freelance Social Sector Data and Evaluation Professional, Paul B Collier Consulting
Wish for Wheels is lucky to have gotten the chance to work with Lauren. She has been a tremendous help in our social media presence. Over the course of a few short weeks we went from almost no activity on our social media platforms, to being comfortable and knowledgeable enough to run Hootsuite and post multiple times a day. Beyond just posting, she has broken down the analytics and demonstrated how we can use those to gain more followers and spread the mission of Wish for Wheels. Lauren is great at giving you the tools you need to succeed, rather than just simply doing the work for you (which I am sure would have been easier in this case. I was very hesitant about using social media). She is extremely approachable and easy to talk to about any concerns/questions/comments that come up. We would absolutely recommend her to anyone looking to build their reach!

Social Media and Outreach
Lauren was able to come on board to help us in the last month or so of planning an investor event in Boston this month. She jumped right in and was instrumental in getting us on an online presence and pushing out the event to the broader impact investor network and our event was completely filled to capacity. I look forward to working with her in the future.
CEO, Next Wave Impact
Lauren Andraski was integral in making sure that my team met every milestone of our major software implementation with a very aggressive timeline.
I have had the pleasure of working with Lauren first as her Executive Coach and later I brought her on my team to lead projects focused on community outreach and making more effective systems. She never disappointed.
Lauren is organized, bright and action-oriented. She is a hungry learner who approaches new challenges with a potent combination of scientist and entrepreneur. She is always welcome to be one of my partners.

Outreach and Mission Effectiveness
Lauren has the unique ability to immediately connect with people. This combined with her enthusiasm and can-do attitude made her extremely effective in the role of Community Outreach manager at the Urban League of Greater Madison. Having created this position from the ground up, Lauren used her critical thinking skills to develop new and better ways to increase membership and partner with employers. Her willingness to question establish procedures and find ways to improve processes will have a positive and long lasting impact on the Urban League. Lauren's passion for the work she does will allow her to make a real difference in the world.
