For eighteen years of my life I grew up and lived in Orange, CA. When it came to choosing a college, I was being recruited for volleyball up and down the East Coast. After a short trip visiting the schools that I was interested in, I decided that the best choice for me, as an athlete and student, would be to attend Lasell University.

While at Lasell, I not only played volleyball for four years but worked in the Admissions Office, and for Athletics as game staff and as a graphic designer for the sports programs. Every year I would also model for the Undergraduate and Senior Fashion collections, with all outfits designed and made by Lasell Fashion students.

After four amazing years at the University, I was given the incredible opportunity to return to my alma mater as an Assistant Volleyball Coach and Admissions Counselor.

Favorite kind of food: Hands down - Chinese food. I could eat this all day every day! There is nothing like ordering in some Chinese food with a group of friends or family members and just sharing an excessive amount of food.

Favorite animal: My favorite animal is a raccoon. Some call them the "trash pandas" of the world but honestly, I think they are extremely intelligent and adorable creatures.

Favorite job in college? One out of the three jobs I did in college was work with the Athletics Department as a graphic designer. I had complete artistic freedom with my graphics, which allowed me to experiment and get creative. I had only been a Graphic Design minor for that year but felt like that job forced me to learn and better my skills in such a short time frame.

Why Lasell? I had the amazing honor of attending Lasell as a student for four years. The memories, lessons, experiences, people, and knowledge that I gained is something for which I will be forever grateful. As you can see, I loved the school so much that I came back to work for it!
