Lauren Giglio-Thomas

  • Class Year 2009

  • Degree B.S. Biopsychology

A middle school counselor in Anne Arundel County in Maryland, Lauren has spent more than a decade studying at Loyola, from her first year on the Evergreen campus to her two graduate degrees from Loyola’s School of Education. Originally from Aquebogue, N.Y., Lauren fell in love with Loyola because of the small class size and the sense of belonging she felt on campus. In addition to her interdisciplinary bachelor’s degree in Biology and Psychology, which she earned in 2009, Lauren received her Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) with a focus in Secondary Biology in 2012; she completed her Master of Education in School Counseling in 2018. Lauren appreciates and is grateful to the School of Education faculty because they truly care about their students: “They challenged each of us to dig deeper, explore ourselves, challenge our beliefs, and work to be better people so that we can be effective counselors for others.” Lauren, who is a licensed clinical professional counselor, incorporates cura personalis into her practices and classroom to help relate to students and her clients—and she attributes her career and her success as a counselor to her Loyola education.
