Where do you live and what do you do?

I live in Cambridge, MA, and I’m the Customer Events & Experience Coordinator at HubSpot – a marketing software company.
 
Why do you choose to support Shore and The Shore Fund each year?

As a student who benefited from financial aid, I want to be sure The Shore Fund is well equipped to help other students like me down the road.
 
What inspired you to make your first gift as a Shore graduate?

Honestly my first donation to Shore was to help the efforts of being the alumni class with the highest % of giving. I don’t think we succeeded.
 
What schools did you attend after Shore? How did Shore prepare you for future learning and your career?

After Shore I went to Hamilton Wenham Regional High School. From there I attended Boston University where I majored in Advertising and minored in Business Administration. Shore helped further my career by teaching me that by settling for the bare-minimum rarely gets you what you want. I believe proof of this shines through in the many successes of Shore alumni, and I find it funny that my team of 30 indiviudals in a 1,000+-person company has two Shore graduates.
 
Do you have a favorite memory as a Shore student?

Our 9th grade trip to Mt. School was far and away my favorite memory at Shore. It’s absolutely crazy to me that our trip was nearly 10 years ago. I can still remember most of it like it was yesterday.
