Why did you decide to attend Lasell? Highly recommended by my High School Soccer Coach. I also loved the location and the Victorian housing the college offered
Current Occupation/ Job Title Project Coordinator, Biotech Industry
Tell us about your job. What do you like most about your current role? I currently work as a project coordinator for a Biotech company in New Haven, CT. What I like most about my position is that it allows you branch out and develop new skills while utilizing your current skill set. It also allows the flexibility to work as your own boss as long as you meet your deadlines and deliverables. :)
How did your experience at Lasell help prepare you for what you are doing today? Never a dull moment....By stacking my schedule with classes and playing two sports and constantly on the move I had no time waste. Discipline was key.
What advice/insight do you have for Lasell alumni and current student-athletes interested in your career field? Take as many courses as you can the first 2-3 years. It makes for a fun and rewarding senior year :)
Looking back on your time as a Lasell student-athlete, what is one of your favorite memories? Obviously my friends and teammates made my experience at Lasell the best.... one of my favorite memories was during softball spring training we had one day off and I fell asleep on Fort Myers beach in the hot hot sun.... Thankfully I tan well :) Second to that a riveting chase to find a soccer teammate one night which involved driving over the soccer field (I was not the driver) :)
