Sarah Taub - Boston


Sarah's love for chocolate began on her 3rd birthday when her father gave her a slice of chocolate birthday cake.  Her eyes grew wide at the sight of the chocolate frosting, and her father told her, “It wont all fit at once”. She then shoveled the entire slice into her mouth looked back at her father, crumbs and icing falling out of her mouth and said, “It fits!”. Sarah is pursuing her license to be a Physician Assistant at Tufts and loves chocolate of all types. She generally lives by the rule, "if a dessert doesn’t have chocolate its not really worth it"
