Lauren Snider Thompson, MAPP

Resilience expert

Lauren Snider Thompson uses her deep knowledge of resilience and increasing well-being of self, team, and organizations as an administrator in a public school, where she has a specific responsibility to ensure at-risk students in grades 5–12 earn their diplomas. She also enjoys her work with college students and faculty as a guest lecturer at Wittenberg University and an assistant instructor at the University of Pennsylvania.

Outside of her role in education, Lauren works with organizations of all types and sizes to help build the resilience of their staff and selves while providing education on how to create positive work and family ecosystems. Prior to answering her call to educate, Lauren worked in the private sector as a medical sales representative.  The diversity in her background leads to a practical, research-based, and engaging learning experience.

Lauren’s interest in teaching people to be the best versions of themselves has informed her own educational journey.  She holds a master’s degree in applied positive psychology from the University of Pennsylvania, a master’s degree in educational leadership from Purdue University, and a bachelor’s degree in biology from Wittenberg University.
