I live in Washington, DC, and work for a small Economic Consulting firm that specializes in Transfer Pricing.
Why do you choose to support Shore and The Shore Fund each year?
I choose to support Shore and The Shore Fund each year because Shore was absolutely the foundation upon which my future learning was built. I know there are skills I have (and use!) now that I learned as a student at Shore.
What inspired you to make your first gift as a Shore graduate?
I made my first gift to Shore shortly after graduation. Shore had really prepared me for high school and I wanted to show my appreciation as I moved on to my next step.
What schools did you attend after Shore? How did Shore prepare you for future learning and your career?
I graduated from Shore after the 9th grade, and then went to Manchester Essex Regional High School. After graduating from high school, I attended Wellesley College, majoring in Economics. Shore prepared me incredibly well for both my future education and career. Shore instilled me with basic skills – for example, critical reasoning, time management, and curiosity – that continue to serve me well in both classroom and career settings.
Do you have a favorite memory as a Shore student?
Some of my favorite memories as a Shore student are from the ninth grade trip to mountain school – it was a great final trip as a Shore student!
