Hi, I’m Lacey Willman and I am in the class of 2015. I’m from Chicago, attended Culver Academies and then studied Human & Organizational Development and Health Services at Vanderbilt University. I chose CDM because of its reputation and location in exciting New York City. Columbia has been an excellent fit for me since I have made amazing friends, become a student leader, and begun networking with alumni. My position in our local chapter of the American Student Dental Association allows me to help plan mentorship, pre-dental, and community service events as well as attend national ASDA meetings. I am also the Ethics Chair of my class and participate in Elder Smile, a program dedicated to the primary care needs of Washington Heights’ elderly population. I love to experience new cultures and one day hope to combine this passion with dental service trips around the world.
