I graduated!! Yes, that's right! Strange but true, with snazzy outfits to prove it. I will miss these ladies, about half of them are headed out into the great wild world! The rest will be close by at trusty HCMC!

The great Rondino! Ronda and I spent COUNTLESS hours studying in my apt, traveled to Europe together, and in general just made it through. She is amazing, and matched in dermatology!

My Body Buddies! Yes, that's a slightly brash term, but literally we shared a cadaver...thus we were body buddies. Me (Psych U of Mn), Chad (Ortho NC), Joe (Diagnostic Radiology RI), Sancia (Internal Med, Tulane)

Flashback! 4 years ago at our white coat ceremony!

And, my fantastic family. I could NEVER have made it through without them. Especially my Mom. Thank you Mom. I can't even tell you how much your support means to me! Dad and Nick, you are alright too:)

Jayne and Elizabeth came!

And my uncle Al! He also had reason to celebrate...

My cousin Vanessa graduated the next day from MNSU!

And the lovely Ellen also attended!

After the ceremony we had lunch at Ecopolitan, my favorite restaurant! I was so lucky that Mike, Beth and Gary all joined for lunch. The fun continued the next night as Lisa joined us for a sushi dinner...And I got one of the long coveted Anthro aprons! Thank you everyone for making my graduation so special!

I still get tears in my eyes when I think of that ceremony! I probably always will. You worked so hard for that day! Love you.

What a smart, attractive group you are!

You should be VERY, VERY proud of yourself. What an amazing accomplishment.

And I am very glad that you matched here in MN. :)

I think we need to do a GF cooking night in our Anthro Aprons.

Thanks so much for sending the pictures and identifying the people in them! Such a wonderful accomplishment and we'll be thinking of you over the next few years of school! I would be so burnt out from studying so I truly applaud you from the bottom of my heart! We all know you worked so hard for this!
