“Working at Lausanne has been a dream come true,” shares Laura. “Not a native Memphian, I was immediately impressed with the school when I first came across its website many years ago. It had the open-mindedness and academic program I had always sought as a student and what I wanted for my own children. Having attended a liberal arts college, I felt right at home on the Lausanne campus. It is now my great pleasure to witness the joy and excitement of our students as they experience each step of The Lausanne Way and to share those opportunities with prospective families.”
Colby Hall joined the Lausanne community in 2013 after several years in the hospitality industry. After graduating from the University of Tennessee Knoxville with a B.S. in hospitality management, Colby began her career as an event coordinator for Marriott International. Colby quickly advanced her career in the hospitality industry as both a social catering coordinator and sales executive. After moving to several different cities with Marriott and holding several different positions, she was ready to follow her dream of working with children.
Combining her hospitality background and her love for children, Colby is a welcoming member of our admissions team. “I have always loved working with children as both a coach and a mentor. Using my hospitality skills to welcome children and families to Lausanne is the best thing that has ever happened to me.”
Shannon Holder joined the Lausanne admission team in July 2017. Shannon’s delightful voice will likely first greet you or her cheerful email response you may receive after inquiring about Lausanne. With many years of excellence in the service industry, from time as a personal assistant to an office manager for a local ND’s office, Shannon joyfully welcomes each family she meets to Lausanne.
From a mother’s standpoint, she was instantly drawn to what Lausanne has to offer today’s young generation. “Our children are not just our future. They are our today. And we are always told to make today count,” she says. Additionally, Shannon shares she is “honored to be working alongside such precious families of young adults on their preparatory journey to adulthood and looks forward to helping parents and prospective students feel confident in their choice today for a better tomorrow.”
