Lauren Payne

Lauren is a homegrown Mainer with an abundance of state pride. After graduating from John Bapst Memorial High School in Bangor, she began her undergraduate studies at the University of Maine before transferring to the University of New England (UNE) to complete her Doctor of Pharmacy degree. Lauren then completed two years of postgraduate residency training at Maine Medical Center (MMC) in Portland, earning a specialty in critical care pharmacy. Her numerous teaching opportunities, including completion of a teaching certification program, fostered a real passion for academia, and Lauren is now continuing her career as a clinical professor with a practice site at MMC -- training future pharmacists and taking care of trauma patients. Lauren’s job is fast-paced, demanding, and never dull. She absolutely loves it!
