Chapter Leads

Courtney Christoforo


I was raised in southern Maine and attended undergrad at Ithaca College. During my time at Ithaca, I competed on the woman’s gymnastics team. Coming home to attend UNECOM was a no brainer for me as Maine is such a beautiful place to live. When I’m not studying, I enjoy being outside, hanging out with my dog, reading, listening to music, and eating good food. Teaching spin at UNECOM has been such a great way to continue my passion for fitness during medical school!

Julia Shepherd


I attended Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute for my undergraduate degrees in Biology and Behavioral and Cognitive Neuroscience. I grew up in Southern NH, but my family frequently vacationed in Maine and eventually we moved here a few years ago. Prior to attending UNE COM, I worked in Portland, ME helping kids with developmental disabilities on an inpatient crisis care unit, one of 11 in the country. I enjoy cooking, skiing, and my daily morning CrossFit workout.

Kyra Smith


I’m originally from Littleton, CO and went to the University of New Hampshire where I played D-1 hockey. Playing sports growing up and living in CO I was very active, and it was my major stress outlet. Starting medical school, I wanted to make sure I was still prioritizing my fitness. My fun fact is I’m getting married in December so when I’m not studying or working out, I’m probably wedding planning!

Madeline Beaulieu


I am currently a second-year medical school student at the University of New England College of Osteopathic Medicine. Originally, I grew up in Vestal, New York—a small town in upstate New York and then later on attended Canisius College (a small school in Buffalo, NY), where I majored in biology and played Division I collegiate soccer. I have always really enjoyed outdoor activities, being a part of a team and the amazing capabilities of our bodies. I love the mission of Medicine in Motion and am excited to be part of a team that gives back to a field of professionals who are giving so much to their own communities
