Class NotesView All Notes for Class of 2013
Fellow ’13s, by the time you read this, I hope the snow will be melting off the trees nearby, the birds will be signaling the arrival of spring, and you will be coming back from a spring break trip full of beaches and sunshine! There is no better way to kick off a new season than with a full review of your classmates’ happenings around the world.
As our first update, the class of 2013 officially welcomes Maya Herm as our new class president! Maya has been heavily involved with the College since graduation, and we could not be more excited to have her at the helm of our leadership team. In addition, she wants to let you know that she has moved to sunny Los Angeles. While she is sad to leave college coaching behind, she is looking forward to new challenges and adventures!
While we are on the topic of moving and travel, Harry Greenstone is moving to London with his wife, Sarah Rossow ’14, and their son, Charlie. He will be continuing his work with Deutsche Bank. Meanwhile Sarah Stone is travelling the world—from Florida to China—as she pursues professional sailing full-time! She is based out of Marion, Massachusetts, and if you are curious about what boats she is racing on, follow her on Instagram @floatlikesstone (very clever).
As always, we also have a host of classmates with great accomplishments to share. Priya Krishna has a book coming out called Indian-ish. She writes, “It’s a celebration of the hybridized Indian food I grew up eating, and it’s the perfect starter book for someone looking for an accessible entry point into Indian flavors.” Plus, it took a small ’13 village to taste test: She thanks Thea Stutsman, Edita Robinson, James Lee, Caitlin Ardrey,and many others for their participation! You can pre-order her book on Amazon or buy it wherever books are sold as of April 23. Renee Scott presented one of her research projects, “Black Child Breathing: Finding Freedom Through Black Normativity in Young Adult Fiction,” at the biannual Princeton African American studies conference in October and has launched her website, reneenscott.com.
Michelle Berlinger also writes in with an update on her business, Berlinger Jewelry. If you’re in the market for engagement or wedding rings, she has you covered! Michelle re-launched the company recently after getting her start during her senior fellowship creating jewelry in the Dartmouth jewelry studio. You can find more about her creations and business on her website, berlingerjewelry.com. Dennis Page passed the principles and practice of engineering certification exam in October and works for LTK Engineering Services in White River Junction, Vermont. In December he moved to Enfield Center, New Hampshire, with his girlfriend, Meaghan Warburton. From Chicago, Lin Bo let us know that he has finished up his basic improv comedy program at Second City. Congrats, Lin!
Finally, in case you missed it, our classmate Jeff Butler was named to Forbes’ “30 Under 30” list! Jeff is an investment analyst at Viking Global Investors, where he has seen great success across investments in the industrial, business services, and energy sectors. Jeff, if you’re reading this, please let me know your finance tutoring availability.
Last, but certainly not least, are our recent engagements: Danny Zhang and Jillian Dunne got engaged in Hawaii in September 2018 and Lisa Berreman and Justin Foley have proven that love can be found in the Gamma Delta Chi pit (R.I.P.). After having met over “a lovely game of pong,” they got engaged in Chicago in the fall of 2018. Congratulations to all!
