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!

For 18 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 thing to discuss about Lasell? I absolutely love talking about the personal relationships that you obtain with your professors because of the small class sizes! 

Most frequently asked question from students about Lasell? "What is there to do on campus and off campus?"

Name some of your hobbies: I'm a huge cinema fan. I love watching movies and learning neat facts about the behind-the-scenes and how it was all made. When I'm not watching movies, I'm probably out playing volleyball or planning my next trip to Disney! 

Why did you choose to attend or work at 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!
