What attracted you to Lasell College? I was drawn to Lasell because of their program in Sports Communication, the opportunity to compete in athletics at the Division III level and the countless opportunities that Boston provides for the sports industry.

What do you hope to do when you graduate?  I have an internship with Major League Lacrosse for the upcoming summer in social media marketing and journalism. I have aspirations of working in Sports Journalism for the Boston Bruins, ESPN, NESN or another major network or sports team.

What is your favorite memory of your time at Lasell? Being a part of the Cross Country and Track & Field teams at Lasell for the past four years has provided me with some of my greatest experiences allowing me to meet some of my closest friends creating lasting memories.

How has your experience at Lasell prepared you for your future endeavors?  Lasell has allowed me to step outside my comfort zone both academically and athletically making me the person I am today. Lasell has truly taught me the value of hard work, if you make the effort you will not go unnoticed. Through Lasell’s many opportunities of Connected Learning and Internships I have gained countless incomparable experiences and connections.
