Post Graduation Involvement:
Since graduating from La Salle, I have enjoyed participating in Admissions college fairs and high school recruitment visits, hosting accepted student events, helping organize alumni community service opportunities, and participating in Explorer Interviews.  Around a year ago, in collaboration with area alumni and the university, I helped establish La Salle’s Baltimore Alumni Chapter.  After successful events in 2017, we look forward to continuing to build the club in 2018 and beyond!

In addition, I serve as the Vice-Chair of the Monsignor O’Dwyer Retreat House (the Archdiocese of Baltimore’s youth retreat facility) and as the Chair of the Young Leaders Group for the Baltimore Chapter of the Urban Land Institute. I hope to bring my experiences with other boards to support La Salle and help make it an even better place.

Why would you like to serve on the Alumni Board?
“The main reason I’d like to serve on the alumni board is to give back to a place that has given me so much.  As a board member I will bring my experience in strategic planning and implementation, help drive recruitment and promotion efforts, and offer fresh ideas that support our alma mater and spread the Lasallian mission.”
