CEO of my own life 💁🏽‍♀️

I had the best time with the dental students at Tufts, BU, Harvard, UConn and UNE this weekend. Thank you for letting me speak and tell my story. I was honestly blown away and I empathized greatly with the sacrifices they have made to be at their caliber. Can’t wait to see what the future holds for them!

Shoutout to medprodental for sponsoring and inviting me to speak. And of course to the fabulous _brookesullivan and ashtonbrooke4 for always making me feel my best.

Anyone else have an epic weekend?

Favorite things about Tufts/Boston: I love so many things about Boston! Some things I love are the history and how mostly everything is within walking distance. I am a huge theater fan as well, so living so close to the theater district is definitely a MAJOR plus!

Fun Fact: I am a singer, dancer, and actress! I have been a dancer since I was 3 years old and I have been singing since as long as I can remember! 🙂

Favorite thing(s) about Tufts and/or Boston? I didn't expect to fall in love with Boston as much as I did! I enjoy exploring all of the neighborhoods of Boston and how they have their own little character. Boston is such a walkable city which makes getting around super easy.

Fun Fact(s) about yourself and/or hobbies? A fun fact about me is that I love to cook! I often find myself cooking to procrastinate studying haha! I didn't really learn how to cook until college and I ended up teaching myself. Now I am constantly experimenting with new recipes. This past year I made two 20lb turkeys for thanksgiving and learned how to grill! I am also a wine, craft beer, and coffee nerd too.
