Warm greetings all! Late last fall I was in Boston for a few days and met up with several classmates. We got the old Heights suite back together with Anne Paruti Lohnes, Sarah Mockler, and Jeanine D’Angelo Campbell. Jeanine and her husband, Patrick, recently opened The Stones, a restaurant in Stoneham, Mass. I visited with Tammie Sebelius and Kathryn Kosuda, as well as Kathryn’s precious new son, Rowan Cyrus Yeganeh, who was born Oct. 21. Rowan joins Kathryn, her husband, Sina, and older brother Rory. Tammie loves living close enough to babysit. I also caught up with Jess Bennett Shah, her husband, Nik, and her adorable children, Bennett and Anya. Jess continues to work as a pediatrician at Tufts Medical Center. * Kate Dalton lives in Hyannis, Mass., with her three children, Cagan, 11, Aidan, 7, and Adria, 4. She’s practicing breast surgery at Cape Cod Hospital and also works as a professional speaker for Myriad Genetics on hereditary cancer testing and breast cancer genomic testing. She recently launched a concierge medi-spa business called Cape Cod Aesthetics. When not working, she enjoys the beaches of the Cape with her family. * Ali Culpen Schwabe, Whitney Alford Mallozzi, Jaime Langione Endreny, Ashley Landbloom, Emily Bridwell, and Helena Tubis also enjoyed the Cape this summer during a fun weekend reunion celebrating 15 years of friendship and 10 babies! * JJ ’01 and Piper Elliott Abodeely are building a house in Sonoma with their three kids and invite visitors next summer! * After four years at the Municipal Securities Rulemaking Board, Carl Tugberk joined Wells Fargo as a senior vice president of government relations and public policy with a focus on regulatory issues for the bank’s wealth and investment management businesses. * In late 2018 Erin Clark became Western Montana field director at the Montana Wilderness Association, where she’ll be inspiring advocates and delivering campaigns to increase protections for public land. She made the most of a holiday layover in Boston with a quick dinner with Anne Tricomi Lang and Michelle McInnis Myers. * Noah Charney’s latest book, Museum of Lost Art, was a finalist for the Digital Book World Award. This winter his research group, ARCA, is launching a campaign to generate funds for scholarships for students from countries where art and antiquities are at risk for looting and destruction. The scholarships will allow students to come and study at the ARCA postgraduate program in art crime and cultural heritage protection. Noah lives in Slovenia with his daughters, now 4 and 6, and his hairless dog. * Michael Ames published his first book with Penguin Press March 12. American Cipher: Bowe Bergdahl and the U.S. Tragedy in Afghanistan is the result of a combined 15 years research between Michael and his coauthor, former U.S. Army infantryman Matt Farwell. It was a ton of work, and Michael is excited to finally vacate his desk. In April Michael was joined by Brett Lurman, David Schoetz ’00, and Chris Fleming ’99 at a Williamsburg, Brooklyn, reading for the new book. Michael would love to meet up with any other Mules passing through Brooklyn and New York this year. * Charlie and Abby Kussell Hopper live with their two girls, Lila, 4, and Lucy, 2, in Charlestown. They’re getting lots of skiing in this winter and love every chance to meet up with Mules during the year. * After the birth of her daughter, Wilder Alvy, in spring 2016, Alyssa Severn started her own business focused on brand and content strategy and writing. She lives in the Kansas City, Mo., area with her husband, daughter, and two rescued pit bulls. She still adventures, is active in dog rescues, races mountain bikes, and jumps into cyclocross races whenever she can. * I hope the new year leads to more wonderful adventures, achievements, and cherished moments for all of you. I look forward to sharing them with classmates here.
