Class NotesView All Notes for Class of 2013
Hope you are all enjoying the start of summer; we have a lot of exciting announcements!
Daniel Jamokha and Courtney Brown got married in September 2017 and recently bought a house in Alexandria, Virginia, before welcoming their son, Jordan, in October 2018. Lexi Zavras and Eric Sussman ’12 got engaged in Bermuda! And, after striking up a Sophomore Summer romance more than seven years ago, Ginny Miller and Misha Gordon-Rowe finally made it official by getting engaged in December 2018. They are both currently at Harvard Business School with no idea what they will do with their lives, but excited it will be together.
Next, we have some classmates doing great things in the world. Michael Burbank was recently elected as an at-large representative for all five counties in downtown Los Angeles. Ali Oberg just started a role marketing all the features in Microsoft’s products either designed with or for people with disabilities. She would love to connect with others working with this community. Remy Franklin launched his life coaching practice last fall. He coaches people who want to clarify their life vision and career goals, and you can learn more about his coaching on his website, remyfranklin.com.
Alice Liou wanted to share that she created Upstander, an app for teachers that is free for download on the Apple Store. It allows teachers to practice their high-stakes, in-the-moment responses to microaggressions in classrooms and other learning spaces. She hopes it will reach all educators, so spread the word! Callista Womack writes in that she has a lot of art sitting around her studio that she would love to find homes for. Check out her collection at www.etsy.com/shop/Alackaschmatz and let her know if you are interested in adopting anything! Finally, the final issue of The Weekly Standard, which folded late last year, featured two pieces by ’13s: Clare Coffey wrote on mythical creatures and Alice Lloyd closed out the issue with an essay on the last lines of novels.
In graduate school news, Melanie Wilcox is currently a graduate student at Northwestern’s Medill School of Journalism and Mae Abdelrahman is going to Harvard Business School this fall. Congrats to you both!
Finally, in general life news, Anupam Choudhary is back in Seattle, where he grew up. He is enjoying time with old friends and would love to hear from you if you are in the area. Kelsey Byrd is finishing up her first year at the California College of the Arts M.B.A. in design strategy program. She is still living in San Luis Obispo, California, and welcomes catching up with anyone passing through. Ali Oberg wrote in that Luke Murphy, J. Michael Mentrek, Kelly Kugler and others visited her in Seattle in early February. She, Elizabeth Reynolds, and Kara Hedges ’14 got a group of 25 Dartmouth people together to celebrate. Great to see a Dartmouth contingency growing out in the Pacific Northwest! Last, but certainly not least, Jack Boger is settling intoSan Francisco with his fiancé, Thea Sutton ’10, and exploring northern California. He says his favorite part about living out there is listening to the foghorns complain out in the bay late at night. He is still getting used to microclimates, cold and foggy forecasts, and the rent being too damn high. Same, Jack, same.
Thank you again for all the life updates everyone and have a great summer!
