Dr. Macdonald Jr's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Macdonald Jr "I was raised here in Monmouth County and am grateful to have settled here, close to the places and people I love most in my life. My parents believed in the best education for their children, and as such, after attending Forrestdale, I spent four wonderful years at Portsmouth Abbey, a theocentric school which molded my entire future. Being an outdoorsman having a love for New England, I next chose Williams College, where I was graduated with Highest Honors in Chemistry. My enchantment with New England then led me to Dartmouth Medical School."
