Biography:
Vikki earned her B.A. in Communication with a minor in Public Relations from the University of Maine, where she also earned her M.Ed in Student Development in Higher Education. During her time at the University she was actively involved in the TRiO Upward Bound program where she found her love for advising. Before she started at Lasell College she worked at Middlesex Community College as a TRiO Advisor for the TRiO Student Success Program for almost two years. During her free time she enjoys working on craft projects and traveling to Maine and New Jersey to visit her family and friends.

What do you like about being an advisor at Lasell?
I enjoy that Lasell is a small institution as it gives me the opportunity to connect with all of my advisees on an individual basis. I have the opportunity to meet with all of my advisees multiple times in one semester. During my meetings with students I can get to know them based on what their interests are both inside and outside the classroom. My goal is to help the students better understand the advising process to ensure they are successful during their first year as a student, but also the years to follow.
