Lauren Salitan

My name is Lauren Salitan

I am a current student at the Urban Assembly New York Harbor School

I am in the Marine Biology Research Program

I have been studying the effects of chlorine exposure on oysters for the last three years

I am the current senior project manager for the citizen science group Harbor SEALs

I am originally from Rochester, NY

I moved to NYC in 2004

I have lived in Battery Park City since


I was born on February 14th, into the Betts-Salitan family, to my mother, Valerie, and my father, Stephen (Steve), with two older siblings: Sara and Erik.

I am an ENTJ according to Meyers-Briggs personality coding. Rather than being a visual or auditory learner, I grow best through conversation. I have developed communication skills with lots of practice in public speaking and child care. I am passionate about the environment and teaching others. Look below for some more photos!
