Research Support Coordinator
Lauren Hicks is DCIG’s Research Support Coordinator. Lauren directs research requests from vendors to the correct DCIG analyst, provides instruction on the use of the IBG, manages requests related to DCIG’s portal, and is the data sheet transcriptionist.
Before becoming part of the DCIG team Lauren was a substitute teacher working in elementary through high school classrooms, and was part of a team writing and editing curriculum for middle school grades. A skilled musician herself, Lauren has also been a private music instructor for over 20 years.
Lauren’s strengths include organization, attention to detail, and encouragement. Her willingness to do whatever needs to be done means she is probably doing more than the summary above would suggest.
