My educational background

Gold Phi Beta Kappa key

I graduated from high school as valedictorian of my class, where I was inducted into the National Honor Society and received 17 academic awards and honors in subjects that included science, mathematics and English.

As an undergraduate I studied Philosophy at Tufts University for two years and later received my B.A., summa cum laude, from Wells College, where I majored in Psychology and minored in English. I was named the Phi Beta Kappa Scholar in my Junior year at Wells, was given the Association of Women in Science Award for outstanding work in more than one field of science, and received the Helena M. Zachos Creative Writing Award. In my Senior year I was inducted into Phi Beta Kappa.

I spent four-and-a-half years at the University of Pennsylvania, where I studied Psychology, doing research in Neuropsychology. I received my M.A. from UPenn, but due to the onset of chronic autoimmune illnesses, I was unable to complete my Ph.D.

I later earned a B.S. in Information Technology from the University of Massachusetts Lowell, where I was inducted into Alpha Sigma Lambda, the National Honor Society for Continuing Education.

In the years 2000, 2006 and 2007 I attended the annual meetings of the Mastocytosis Society, and I've viewed the DVDs of the presentations at the most recent, 2009, meeting. In 2007 I attended the medical presentations and sessions at the Annual Meeting of the American Academy of Allergy Asthma & Immunology, which took place in San Diego, California, and I have had access to the presentation materials for the 2008 and 2010 Annual Meetings.
