Lauren Alexander

Lauren’s passion as a Change Agent stems from a lifelong desire to make a difference in the lives of

others. In January 2019, she co-founded Compita Consulting with her husband, Daniel, opting to

leave over 10 years of teaching to complement Daniel’s skills and expertise in Work Health and

Safety (WHS) in the Government sectors. In March 2022, she completed her Certificate IV in WHS

with a vision of diversifying Compita Consulting to become a one-stop shop for managing physical

and psychological hazards in the workplace, and this is when her role as Psychosocial Change Agent

was born. Most recently, Lauren has assisted the Australian Defence Force Academy (ADFA) with

critical WHS matters, demonstrating her working knowledge of WHS Legislation. She is currently

undertaking a Diploma in Positive Psychology and is motivated to work with organisations to foster

positive changes in how they view psychologically safe workplaces.
