Class NotesView All Notes for Class of 2012
Many notes, little space. (Good problem!)
Michael Moriarty writes to recap a large group of ’12s traveling to London for Conrad Scoville’s bachelor party (he’ll be marrying Kathleen Quirk soon). The trip included Michael, Peter Stein, Kunal Malkani, Patrick Chen, Ray Peng, Tom Woodford, Sean Schultz, Ben Gonin, and David Rogg. “Pimm’s cups and pints were enjoyed and a cricket match was watched (but not understood).”
Lisa Koenig married Brian Quinn (Harvard ’04) this spring at the Milwaukee Art Museum. “It was not only one of the happiest days of my life, but also an excellent opportunity for a Dartmouth reunion,” Lisa writes, “featuring Casey Gardiner ’11, Laura Mantell, Kelsey Woerner Speers, Ryan Speers ’11, Rachel Groh, Jenna Sherman ’08, Grace Tiedemann, Amanda Marinoff, and Melissa Saphier.”
Liz Ballantyne is engaged to Trevor Horan ’13, to be married in August 2020.
Erin Lansky lets us know that Claire Michaud is engaged to Richard Collins. The two met at Oxford, where Claire was studying for her master’s in Latin studies and Rich was working toward a Ph.D. in biochemistry. The couple are moving back to Claire’s native Boston, where she has accepted a new role with Bain Consulting.
Bianca Smith just started a new job at Carroll University in Waukesha, Wisconsin, as its new assistant athletic director and senior female administrator. She’ll also be working with the baseball team, after starting her career in professional baseball.
Liz Fairchild tied the knot with João Montalvão Machado with two ’12s by her side as bridesmaids, Jessi Merry Samuels and Zoe Friedland, and many more in attendance! She also recently started her M.B.A. at Georgetown University.
Peter Williamson took a break from professional golf to rehab a hand injury, settle in D.C., start a social venture (Game Genius), and marry Mary Adelaide. He shares this fun fact: “We’ve known each other for 21 years now. Our relationship is old enough to drink, but neither of us do.”
After five years in Boston at a global macro investment fund, Kurt Kostyu is now pursuing a masters at the Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS). This academic year he’s at the SAIS Europe campus in Bologna, Italy, and next year he’ll be at the D.C. campus.
Connor Flint just finished his medical intern year at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Washington, D.C., and is currently in Pensacola, Florida, training to be a naval flight surgeon. (Thanks, Chelsea Stewart, for the note!)
Madison Rezaei finished her M.B.A. from Wharton last year and was recently promoted to principal at Altman Vilandrie, a strategy consulting firm. She’s still based in San Francisco where she competes in dressage with her horse, Cosette.
Finally, Karen Afre writes in with a sweet update to the best class ever: “After graduation I decided to pursue a career in student affairs and stayed on to work at Dartmouth. Time flies, and now I am heading into my third year working as the associate director in the academic skills center. I am two classes away and a thesis shy of receiving my second Dartmouth degree through the master’s in liberal arts (MALS) program. I’m always happy and excited to welcome home a fellow ’12.”
