Hometown: Red Hook, New York   

Major: Sport Management  

Minor: Law and Business Minor   

Why did you choose your major at Lasell ?  
I have always loved sports, I've played softball and volleyball since I was a little girl and I love watching football, baseball, and basketball with my dad. After I graduate I would love to go work for a major sports team and be a part of their community outreach/corporate social responsibility department.

What was it that brought you to Lasell?
The small class sizes is what really drew me to Lasell. Coming from a small town, I knew I wanted to have good relationships with my professors in order to have more networking opportunities and also just for guidance in college and later in life.

What activities are you involved in or have been involved in (clubs, activities, athletics, etc.)?
I am on the Women's Volleyball team, I am currently the sports editor for the 1851 Chronicle, I am part of the Habitat for Humanity Club, and I am the Men's Basketball Manager.

Any internship you may have done, or are looking to do?
 
 I was part of the Frank and Peggy Steele Internship Program at the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum this past summer. I spent the summer working in the Education and Public Programming Department, giving tours, creating programs, and working with school groups.

Favorite class you have taken at Lasell and why?
My FYS class freshman year was by far the best. It was Games and Brain Teasers with Professor Harwich-Pettinato. We had so much fun in that class and I learned a lot about poker and brain teasers.

What do you like to do off campus or in Boston?  
I love to go adventuring and take pictures with my camera. I'm really into photography and sometimes I will just grab a friend a go for a walk in the snow and take pictures all day. I also like to go into Boston and walk around the Boston Common or Park Street.

Do you have an interesting story or great memory from Lasell that you would be willing to share?
This past August I went to Puerto Rico with the Volleyball team to compete in a tournament. We fundraised all last year to make the money to go. We got to go snorkeling in crystal blue water and hike through the rainforest to a waterfall. It was so fun to bond with my team and explore a new place together.
