Advice from a physician turned Chocolatier

After graduating from BU’s six-year medical program, Elaine Hsieh (CAS’90, MED’90) established a women’s health practice in Arlington, MA but over the next twenty years, she slowly came to the realization that that healthcare was not her true career calling. In 2010, she co-founded a local chocolate shop, EHChocolatier, and since then, her business has been celebrated as ‘Best in Boston’ among a long list of other accolades.

Elaine’s unique entrepreneurial story takes place right here in Boston where she is one of more than 86,000 alumni. You’ll hear Elaine’s reflections on why she believes The Hub was the right place to launch her business.
