Favorite Thing about TUSDM/Why you chose Tufts: From my very first time at 1Kneeland St., I felt a special connection. The day before my interview, I walked into the school just to catch a glimpse and I was confronted by our famed Tufts PD officer, Sean. He ended up giving me a tour of the school and introduced me to some very welcoming dental students, faculty, and staff walking around the building– In a way, I felt like my interview had already started! I just remember that he was talking to me as if we’d known each other for years and that family feeling really hit home with me. This came to fruition months later when I arrived at Tufts as a D23 and met all of my classmates. I couldn’t ask for a better group, each and every one of them, to endure and conquer dental school with. From gross anatomy to operative dentistry and everything in between, we’ve stuck together as one big family, and I am honored to carry on the TUSDM legacy.
Fun Fact About yourself/Things involved in outside of School: I have a twin brother, Kurt, who is pursuing a career in dentistry and plans to apply in the near future. Also, I am a huge Michigan fan- Go Blue
