Connection to the Boston Marathon: As a huge Boston sports fan and an avid runner, one of my favorite days every year is the day of the Boston Marathon. For the past three years I have worked as part of the WBZ news team to bring live coverage of the marathon with a focus on the elite runners. After graduating college I intend to pursue marathoning and hopefully qualify for Boston.

Other Info: I'm currently studying accounting and business analytics at Babson College. I am a member and captain of Babson's varsity cross country and track and field teams. After graduation I will be working at PricewaterhouseCoopers in Boston as an audit associate.
