Meet OPRN’s newest board member!
Lauren Ellis, Manager of Prospect Research at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center
What was your first nonprofit job?
Children’s is my first and only nonprofit job so far.
What’s your favorite thing about what you do or where you work?
Serving the mission of the organization, and getting to do it in such an interesting way. I hadn’t known Prospect Research existed as career until I was in it, and every day I get to play detective and learn about people’s lives.
When/where was your first Apra conference?
Mid-Atlantic Researchers Conference (MARC) in 2011 in New York City. I learned so many important things at the New Researchers Symposium, and it really gave me confidence to grow in this profession.
Do you think iced coffee should only be consumed in the summer or all year round?
All year round! Coffee tastes better cold in my opinion!
Who’s your go-to band or artist when you can’t decide on something to listen to?
Billy Joel! He will always be my favorite.
