Hometown: Hudson, NH

Major: Law and Public Affairs

Minor: Forensics Science

Why did you choose your major at Lasell?
I chose Law and Public Affairs at Lasell because I knew I wanted a major that would provide me a wide range of career paths that I could choose from. The courses that are offered for my major introduce me to many aspects of the political world, which is something that I am looking to work in.

What was it that brought you to Lasell?
What brought me to Lasell was the vast amount of opportunities that it offers to students. Also, I wanted to attend a school that was going to become my second home and immediately felt that when I toured the school. The Justice Studies department drew me in when I looked more into it on the school's website and I was so excited to start.

What activities are you involved in or have been involved in (clubs, activities, athletics, etc.)? 
I am a member of the Honors Program and the Blue Key Society. I am also a peer mentor, a member of CAB, and a Peer Health Educator. I also was a part of the Lasellfie Squad for Lasell Day last year.

Favorite class you have taken at Lasell? 
My favorite class that I have taken at Lasell was my SCI105 class, Introduction to Astronomy. This has always been a topic I have been interested in and I was so excited when I saw that it was offered here. 

What do you like to do off campus or in Boston? 
I love going into the city and going to the local sports games. If I'm not at a sports game, I'm usually exploring the city or the museums. I've always loved Boston and Lasell is the perfect distance from it and I can go there whenever I want. 

Do you have an interesting story or great memory from Lasell that you would be willing to share? 
A great memory from Lasell would be being accepted into the Blue Key Society. I was a part of a similar group in high school and I knew I wanted to continue being a resource for prospective students. Working in the admissions office has been one of the best and most fun experiences I have here on campus. On top of that, I was awarded Employee of the Month for Blue Key Society this past September and it is something I am very proud of.
