Lauren Pehnke's tech origin story really kicked off while earning her bachelor's in biotechnology and assisting some computer science majors with their indie game projects. She carried that same scientific curiosity and methodology forward through the years—performing visual and functional QA for Rock Band 4's multi-platform release; wrangling databases, vendors, and client support tickets for athenahealth's EHR system, and most recently starring as the QA specialist on back-office and machine learning projects at Aquent, an international staffing company.
