Biography: I'm originally from Burlington, Vermont. I made the move down to Boston to attend Lasell and I never left! I graduated in 2012 with a B.A. in History. I started college with the goal of being a high school history teacher, but that changed once I started working in Admissions as a student Ambassador; higher education was calling my name!

In my spare time I love reading, watching movies and spending time with family. I am a huge fan of all of the Boston sports teams; the Celtic's are my favorite though! I played basketball my whole life and all four years here at Lasell. Now that I am a retired basketball player, my new goal is to run a marathon!

What drew me to Lasell was the small campus size, as well as the small classrooms. I didn't want to be just another number in class; I wanted to know my professors and to know they were there to help me out. Lasell provided me the opportunity to work closely with all of my professors and to be an active member on campus. Lasell gave me a well-rounded college experience, which has allowed me the opportunity to pursue a successful future!
