While at Lasell, she served as an assistant coach for the 2013 season then later as the interim head coach. In addition to assisting with practice plans and on-field defensive strategies, Lipscomb also coordinated the Lasers strength and conditioning program, recruiting and analyzing potential student-athletes as well as organizing off-field operations such as travel logistics and meal money distribution.

In her two years at Elms, she hit .353 (76-for-215) with nine doubles, 39 RBIs as well as an outstanding .408 on-base percentage and .862 stolen base percentage (25-for-29) over the course of 70 games.
After graduating from Elms with a Bachelor’s Degree in Education and Psychology in December, 2011, Lipscomb spent the 2012 season as an assistant coach for the Blazers. Under 27-year veteran softball Head Coach Cheryl Condon, she assisted in generating practice plans, recorded games and practices as well as assisted in the program’s fundraising efforts.
