Every new year at Rosary brings changes. This year Rosary welcomes many new faculty and staff members, including Mrs. Lee who is one of the new Academic and College Counselors. I had the pleasure of interviewing her to help the Rosary community get to know her.

Q: Where were you born and raised?

A: I was born in Seoul, South Korea. However, I came to the United States when I was two and was raised in the San Fernando Valley.

Q: Where did you go to college?

A: I went to Wellesley College, which is an all-women’s college in Massachusetts. I loved my college experience and being in an all-female environment was life-changing (I wouldn’t trade that experience for anything). It was a unique and formative experience – one that makes me who I am today and I am very grateful for it. I honestly believe that my time there has made me a stronger and better person.

Q: What is your family like?

A: They are loud, close-knit, and weird. I have one brother and a son named Logan.

Q: What are some of your hobbies?

A: I like to bake and I baked a lot during the pandemic. I also enjoy yoga.

Q: What’s your favorite color?

A: Yellow

Q: Do you have any pets?

A: I have a dog named Lily. She is a rescue and has ears that look like Calla lilies.

Q: What’s your favorite book?

A: The entire Harry Potter series.

Q: What drew you to counseling?

A: I like students. I believe in education and have been in education for a long time. I’ve been a teacher, administrator, and worked at non-profits. I believe that students are the future and that by supporting them, I can help shape future generations.

Q: What do you feel you can bring to Rosary?

A: I feel like I have a lot of knowledge when it comes to college counseling that I can use to support Rosary students and families. Plus, my sunny disposition and personality are also great additions, and finally, I just love the all-girls environment and I believe that I can continue supporting the young women here.

With her positive attitude, amazing sense of humor, and numerous knowledge when it comes to college counseling Mrs. Lee is a wonderful asset to the Rosary community. If you see her around campus be sure to say hello and welcome her to Rosary.
