Schedule a Meeting

Please consider scheduling an Admission Interview with me, at your convenience. While interviews are not required as part of the application process, they help us get to know you - and vice versa! Or consider joining one of our 30-minute Virtual Information Sessions, which are led by an Admission Counselor like me. You can also take a Virtual, In Person, or Self-Guided Tour of campus!

I was born right down the street from campus in Newton, Massachusetts, but I'm an adult third culture kid or (A)TCK. I graduated from Washington University in St. Louis with a degree in History and Education before attending University College London as a graduate student. I have worked on both sides of the desk in admissions - I love connecting with students, school counselors, and CBO's.

Favorite kind of food or music: Anything spicy!

Fun fact: I live in Jamaica Plain, a neighborhood in Boston, and I'm systematically buying and trying all the breakfast pastries within walking distance of my house.

Favorite job in college? Student teaching in a 7th grade team.

Why Lasell? The people! Everyone is welcoming and wants students to succeed.
