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 am from Pensacola, FL, and graduated from Lasell in 2016 with a BA in Communication. In 2017, I received my Master of Science in Sport Management, also from Lasell. As a student, I represented the institution by competing on the baseball team. This is where I had the honor of being a senior captain and a two-time All-GNAC representative. I also had the opportunity to participate in activities such as Lasell Radio, serve as a Sports Information Intern for Athletics, and work as a student ambassador for the Alumni Relations department.

Favorite thing to discuss about Lasell or favorite thing about Lasell? I love talking about our Career Development Office and our internships! Lasell University does an amazing job making sure our students have a ton of experience and are ready for the workforce when they graduate.

Most frequently asked question from students about Lasell? My favorite question is, "Where is Lasell University?" I love to explain that we are located in Newton, Massachusetts, but that we are only 8 miles from Boston and a 10-minute walk away from the Riverside and Woodland MBTA stations. The accessibility into Boston for leisure, jobs, or internships is perfect! 

Name some of your hobbies: I enjoy going to the gym, enjoying a nice New England summer at the beach, and I play in men's baseball and basketball leagues. 

Why did you choose to attend or work at Lasell?  Working for my alma mater means so much to me. As someone who was 1,400 miles away from home, I always felt like Lasell was my home-away-from-home. As soon as I stepped on campus, I felt like I belonged here. Now as an alumnus, I walk on campus and get goosebumps just from all of the great memories that I have here. I've chosen to come back and work for Lasell because I enjoy sharing my story and because I believe that Lasell is a fantastic institution.
