I grew up in Poughkeepsie, New York. I started my education at Poughkeepsie High School, the same high school that Bill Clinton attended. I then went on to Vassar College where I majored in English and minored in French. After college, I moved to San Francisco and worked as a copywriter for a small advertising agency. I eventually moved back to New York, this time to work for JWT, one of the world’s largest advertising agencies. There, I became a senior vice president in charge of global creative services.

After nine years with JWT and many trips around the world, I decided it was time for a change and sold my company to an Australian company called Dentsu Aegis Network. Since then, I’ve been traveling more than ever and enjoying life to the fullest. In this blog post, I’ll share some of my favorite memories from growing up in Poughkeepsie and what it’s like now that I live all over the world.

My childhood and early years in Poughkeepsie, NY

My childhood and early years in Poughkeepsie, NY was great. I grew up in a small town with a lot of history and culture. I loved going to the local libraries and Archives, exploring the shops on Main Street, and spending time at my grandparents' house.

I also enjoyed playing hockey and basketball in the local parks. My family is very close-knit and we always supported each other. We are all very proud of where we come from and how we have accomplished what we have in our lives. Poughkeepsie has definitely shaped me into the person I am today. It is a great place to grow up and I am grateful for all of the memories that I made there.

My education and career in the medical field

Growing up in Poughkeepsie, New York, I always knew I wanted to be a doctor. After spending four years of college studying biology and pre-med, I decided it was time to start my career.

I started out as a medical resident at Covenant HealthCare in Philadelphia, PA. It was an amazing experience getting to work with some of the best doctors in the world. I quickly learned that medicine is one of the most rewarding careers you can have. Since moving back to New York City, I’ve been working as an internist at NYU Langone Medical Center. I love seeing patients and helping them get their lives back on track after a health scare or an illness.

Moving to Florida in 1995

In 1995, I was an 18-year-old senior in high school and I was ready to move out of Poughkeepsie, NY. My parents had been urging me to leave for years, but I always put it off because I didn’t know what I wanted to do with my life.

I started looking into colleges in Florida and realized that it would be a great place to move. The weather is always warm, there are tons of opportunities for work and the people are really friendly. Plus, it’s only an hour drive from my family in Poughkeepsie. So, after much deliberation, my parents and I decided to make the jump and move to Florida. It was a big change for all of us - especially my mom who wasn’t used to leaving her home town - but we all ended up loving it there.

My return home to Poughkeepsie, NY in 2011 and my memoir

I was born and raised in Poughkeepsie, NY. It was a small town but it was home. When I returned home to Poughkeepsie in 2011, it felt like a different place. The small-town feel had faded and the city had taken over. The skyline looked new and shiny, the buildings taller and cleaner than they ever had before. But despite how different everything looked, the familiarity of my home still felt comforting.

As I walked around my old neighborhoods, I could feel a sense of nostalgia wash over me. It was like looking at photos of someone you used to know - every corner brought back memories of happy times with my family and friends.

But even though Poughkeepsie felt like a safe haven in 2011, there were still things that made me uneasy - like the increasing crime rates or the way that the town seemed increasingly divided between rich people and poor people. Regardless of how much things have changed since I left, Poughkeepsie always feels like home to me - no matter what happens outside its gates


From growing up in Poughkeepsie, NY to my current home in Southern California, this is the story of a 50 year journey. From the rough and tumble of my childhood to graduating from college and starting my career, I have faced many challenges and enjoyed many successes. Along the way I have met some amazing people and made some lifelong friendships. This memoir is about all of that – good times, bad times, happy times, frustrating times – everything that has happened during these past fifty years.
