I grew up in southern New Jersey but spent summer weeks with my grandparents in the lakes region of New Hampshire, where I fostered a life-long love of the granite state.   After graduating from Dartmouth with a degree in biology and psychology, I earned my MD at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis.  I completed my residency in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at Northwestern University’s Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago. Since then, I have been working in private practice treating people with disabilities at a tertiary medical center in southwestern Chicago.   I currently reside in the western suburbs of Chicago with my college sweetheart-turned-husband, Walter Florence, and our three children.

I joined Centennial Circle because I want to be part of Dartmouth women supporting Dartmouth women.
