Memorable MGH Moments

"Serving as the 'commissioner' of the MGH Bowling League for five years remains a great memory. I still have all the stat sheets from 2007-11 in my files, which says more about my need to apply Marie Kondo's teachings here at work than anything else."

“The surprise 'Choose Your Own Adventure Bar Crawl' the social team threw for me for my 10-year anniversary. I'd say the ADDYs at the Baltimore Museum of Industry, and the agency-wide “Around the World Happy Hour" are both at the top of my list, too."
