Rebecca P. is a TP'15 who lives in Cambridge, Massachusetts and works with Social Entrepreneurs in Boston.  Her Tuckie was a high school history teacher before coming to Tuck.  Rebecca can frequently be found driving on I-89 accompanied by their dog, Harry. 

As a "remote" partner (meaning I didn't relocate to Hanover full-time, when my student enrolled at Tuck), I worried about whether I would have the opportunity to connect to other partners.  TPs who live in Upper Valley have many chances to meet each other and forge friendships through a range of activities.  As a Boston-based partner, I looked for opportunities to connect with other Boston TPs.  Luckily, I didn’t have to look too hard!

Early on in the fall, a fantastic TP’14 reached out and organized the first Boston TP event.  At that event, I met some other great TPs who were also going to be doing the 2-hour drive to Hanover on a regular basis.  In addition to sometimes carpooling to Hanover, we have had several more get-togethers including dinners, bar nights, and even a paint night (pictured above!).  

I am so glad to have a found such a great group of people who share my experience as a Boston TP and who are helping to make my Tuck experience that much more awesome!

The next event for remote (Boston) TPs is already scheduled -- a pizza/bowling night in Davis Square in February.  We're looking forward to it!
