Beth grew up near Boston without any idea of becoming a doctor. Now, several cities and a variety of professions later, she has found herself back in Boston pursuing a medical degree. Beth attended Washington University in St. Louis and graduated magna cum laude, majoring in neuroscience-philosophy-psychology. Afterwards, she taught ESL in France for one year, and then worked as a behavioral therapist for children with Autism. It was in the course of doing this work that she realized she wanted to be a physician. After enrolling in a post-baccalaureate program at Columbia University, joining a major aid organization in Haiti, and completing a year of scribe work at a local Boston hospital, she is now an MD candidate at Boston University School of Medicine.
Beth has worked professionally as a teacher for years with middle and high school students, and was a teaching assistant while in college. As a teacher, Beth has discovered important ways to be a successful student: learn with others, learn efficiently, and maintain personal life balance. With these values in mind, she particularly enjoys helping students to prepare for the MCAT.
Beth prioritizes free time as much as working time. She loves swimming, traveling, and taking pictures with her giant dog, Teddy.
