SCMb 2024

I grew up in New Jersey and have, since then, lived all over the country. I spent most of my adult life in New York City and consider that my spiritual home. After nearly ten years of working in public health, I decided to pursue a career in food. I have spent the last six years working in the chocolate industry in sales, marketing, and production roles. When I am not scouring Boston for the best restaurants, I am busy cultivating an absurdly large indoor plant collection, learning new recipes, crafting, seeing concerts, or checking out the latest exhibits at the MFA, ICA, and Isabella Stewart Gardener Museums. I am looking forward to rediscovering Boston and Cambridge through the fresh eyes of my classmates over the next few months!
