Department: Undergraduate Admissions

I was born and raised in East Texas and remain a very proud Texan at heart. During high school, I fell in love with the city of Birmingham, AL and moved 500 miles away from home for college. I received a BA in Foreign Languages and Literatures and an MA in Applied Sociology from the University of Alabama at Birmingham. As a student, I was involved, among many other things, as a tour guide, which led to me developing a passion for a career in higher education. I was fortunate to work as an admissions counselor for my alma mater after graduation before continuing my professional journey.

My husband, Taylor, and I met in college and were married in May 2018. Just one month after getting married, we moved to the Greater Boston area - Whitman to be exact. I am so excited to get to know the city and even more excited to work for a great college like Lasell!  

Favorite animal: My dog, Finn, of course! I adopted him in December of 2015 after seeing Star Wars: The Force Awakens (hence his name). He has been making us laugh ever since because he is a very goofy and friendly pup.  

Favorite job in college: Aside from being a tour guide, I had so much fun working as a fitness instructor during (and after) college! I was certified as soon as I turned 18 and started teaching classes as a freshman. I still love teaching to this day, and my favorite format to teach is Zumba because I love to dance!  

Favorite kind of food: I love ALL food, but being from Texas, I would have to say my favorite kind of food is Tex-Mex. I will never turn down a good bowl of salsa and tortilla chips - the spicier the better!  

Why Lasell? I personally benefitted from an experiential education in college, and I love that Lasell offers those same types hands-on experiences and internships to every student that matriculates here. You can easily see that the professors and staff truly care about the students which gives Lasell such a great community feel.
