Lauren Hudgins

Chief Operating Officer

A valuable asset to the Greenhouse family, Lauren joined our sister company, Greenhouse Partners, in 2015 as a Strategy Associate, solving complex problems and delivering stellar results for a breadth of clients, including the University of Colorado and our valued partner RMB Capital. Before that, she sharpened her expertise in marketing and advertising at Vail Resorts, Global Team Blue, and Lowe Campbell Ewald, working on renowned brands, including General Motors, the United States Postal Service, and Lincoln Motor Company.

Her passion for economic, social, and cultural dynamics affecting disadvantaged groups led her to Greenhouse Scholars. She joined the Scholars team in 2017, managing our Scholars and the Mentorship and Summer Symposium components. She now oversees our entire organization as Chief Operating Officer.

Lauren is a proud Detroit native, Howard University alumna, and first-generation college grad. She loves to travel (having visited countries in Africa, Europe, and North America), try new restaurants, and experience different activities and cultures. When she’s not at work or traveling the world, she loves to spend time with friends and catch up on her favorite television shows.
