I was born and raised in Lebanon until I was ten, and then grew up in what I consider my hometown, Norwood, MA. I received my bachelor's degree in psychology from UMass Boston and my master's degree in advertising from Boston University. While applying to colleges, all I could think about was studying abroad, specifically in London, the land of all great literature and afternoon tea. I had the opportunity to do so during my sophomore year where I took advantage of every weekend trip that was offered. I love to travel and have been to over 25 countries, read psychological thrillers, hike new paths, and try different foods. I've been in higher education for six years and fully enjoy all the student interactions.

Fun fact: I've been skydiving, bungee jumping, zip-lining, and I've walked the top edge of the tallest building in Auckland, NZ.  

Favorite book: Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty  

Favorite food: Fries and ice cream  

Why Lasell? I love how Lasell sincerely cares about the professional and personal growth of its students, faculty, and staff members. It's a school that works to meet the students' needs and well-being and takes pride in its community and the opportunities it can provide.
