Lauren Magee

Lauren Magee has been with the Good Shepherd Volunteers for the last two years. She completed her first year of service in a New York City rapid-intervention diagnostic center for youth entering the foster care system, then moved on to work at Hands of Hope, an income generating project that provides dignified employment for villagers living with HIV/AIDS in Nongkhai, Thailand.

In 2015, she received a bachelor's degree in biomathematics from Loyola Marymount University, where she was on the executive board of the Gryphon Circle Service Organization, leader and participant on Alternative Break Trips, and heavily involved in the St. Columbkille School located in South Los Angeles. She plans on entering the emerging field of social statistics to combine her passions for social justice, relationship-building, research, and mathematics.
