What is your favorite Ambassador memory?
While giving tours, I always stop in front of the seismograph in CAS. I don’t tell my tour group what the screen shows and have all of them jump together to cause an “earthquake”. A 5-year-old sibling visiting campus with his older brother came up to me at the end of the tour and told me he wanted to go to BU when he grew up so he could jump in the halls all the time.
What’s one piece of advice you would give to your high school self?
Don’t feel bad about asking too many questions. You aren’t expected to know everything so don’t miss out on an opportunity just because you were too afraid to ask!
What is your guilty pleasure?
Binge watching Friends even though I’ve been able to quote every episode since before Netflix
What is your dream job?
CEO of a hospital after being a practicing physician
What is at that top of your BU bucket list?
Enjoying the view from the roof of Questrom
