Eileen Lawrence

Member of the Board of Directors

Eileen Lawrence’s career in publishing and education began with her teaching and consulting years in Vermont and New Hampshire in the 1970s, where she created a model preschool in which she taught young children while also training university students. She has been in academic publishing since the 1980s. In 1997 she became VP of Sales at Chadwyck-Healey, Inc. In 2000 she cofounded Alexander Street Press, a global company with the mission of making silent voices heard. She’s currently Chief Inspiration Officer of a new publishing company, Coherent Digital. She holds a B.A. in Psychology from the University of Pennsylvania and an M.Ed. in Education for Social Change from Antioch University of New England, where she served on the advisory board of the Center for Academic Innovation. She is also a member of the Board of Directors of L.A. Theatre Works. Eileen believes that a humanities education is the best preparation for a good life, that we are alive and here to help one another, and that music and theater provide powerful paths to healing and happiness.
