“My Lesley story started when I was just eight years old as I watched my working mother successfully earn her bachelor’s degree through the support and care of Lesley’s community. Twenty years later, I found myself in the very same position and was forever changed by the experience of working with Lesley’s dedicated faculty and its vibrant and engaged learning community. I found it fitting to come back to Lesley and work in the Graduate Admission office so that I can give the gift of Lesley by “helping people who want to help people”  as they continue their education and advance their careers in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. I can’t wait to help you become the author of your own Lesley story!”
