Lauren Bates

Lauren participates in a variety of research and evaluation projects at Education Northwest. Her work includes project management of large, multiyear evaluations; qualitative data collection and analysis; and quantitative data management and analysis. When she's not working, she trades her sensible shoes for some strappy heels to do the Argentine tango.

I believe all people should have access to the tools and supports they need to grow and thrive. I'm passionate about education research because it’s the best way to learn not only what students and teachers need but also how to meet those needs.
