Favorite thing(s) about Tufts and/or Boston? I love the welcoming community, diversity, and overall positive vibes at TUSDM. It’s also nice to walk down the street and quickly spot my D24 classmates blocks away, thanks to our vibrant royal blue scrubs! My favorite thing is to wander around different neighborhoods in Boston. Strolling down brownstone streets, daydreaming, and finding new places to get coffee and treats is the best!

Fun Fact(s) about yourself and/or hobbies? Fun Facts: I’ve never been the biggest fan of Halloween… The first time I went trick-or-treating at 3-years-old, a spooky house traumatized me so much that I refused to go trick-or-treating ever again.
Also, although I look like I’m thriving while kayaking in this photo, I kept crashing into a wall multiple times before. Quite the struggle, but still a fun time! Highly recommend kayaking in the Charles River if you haven’t yet! 🙂

Favorite thing(s) about Tufts and/or Boston? My favorite thing about Tufts is the amazing energy the students & faculty embody. I love seeing how passionate my classmates are to pursue dentistry, and how devoted our faculty is to training us to become exceptional dentists! I also love being apart of such a diverse class and having the opportunity to work together and learn from others. I am so grateful to live in a city as magical as Boston. I absolutely LOVE being a city girl. I enjoy getting lost in dreamy neighborhoods, looking at the architecture, and spending my time at the Museum of Fine Arts!

Fun Fact(s) about yourself and/or hobbies? Fun Fact –
Gordon Ramsay follows me on Twitter – I am his #1 fan.

Favorite thing(s) about Tufts and/or Boston? I am inspired, supported, and uplifted by the community at Tufts and that has meant a lot to me as I navigate a new chapter of my life in a new city. I feel really lucky to have the resources and opportunities at Tufts to grow into the well-rounded dental providers we all aspire to be. My favorite thing about Boston is the mix of cultures and history that make Boston the unique city that it is.

Fun Fact(s) about yourself and/or hobbies? Art has always been a part of my life growing up and now it's my favorite way to relax and create space for myself. I also love hiking and spending time outdoors!

Hometown: Worcester MA

Favorite thing(s) about Tufts and/or Boston? My favorite thing about Boston is Fenway Park. I had a chance to get to a baseball game with my Tufts VIP family recently and just had such a blast! Also, the food scene is great here and I look forward to trying many more restaurants! I also really enjoy the Commons. It is so peaceful to just sit and people watch with a cup of coffee.

Fun Fact(s) about yourself and/or hobbies? My favorite things to do are gardening, baking, and playing with my dog. I love spending time with my family since they are only in Worcester and my friends from school around here. I also love introducing my husband to Boston since he isn’t from here. I haven’t lived in MA for the last 10 years so it has been great to be back!

Positions of leadership at TUSDM: ADEA predental committee and Oral & Maxillofacial Pathology Liaison

Favorite thing(s) about Tufts and/or Boston? At Tufts I enjoy being surrounded by supportive, ambitious and understanding individuals, who inspire me to step out of my comfort zone. Amongst the diversity and abundant opportunities, I appreciate the emphasis that TUSDM places on mind and body wellness. It has taught me the importance of a balanced lifestyle. Outside of Tufts, a few of my go to's in Boston are going out to eat with friends, summer activities by the water and last but not least, self-care days at the salon because it's a must as a dental student.

Fun Fact(s) about yourself and/or hobbies? I was born and raised in Barbados and moved to the US when I was 16yrs old. In addition to my culture, I've always enjoyed learning about Spanish culture. During undergrad I chose to minor in Spanish to improve my fluency and I had an amazing experience studying abroad in Madrid.

#tbt to August 2019, our last Global Service Learning trip to the Dominican Republic. Covid has since shut down these outreach programs but we all remain hopeful that they will eventually be restored. In the meantime, the memories of repairing handpieces with Dr. Theodore will just have to sustain us.
