CLASS OF 2009 | 2019 | ISSUE 2

Hi, fellow 2009ers! Here are some updates on your classmates.

Allison Heaney Lamson is living in Philadelphia with one husband, two cats, and two daughters. She is working for Temple Law School in their global legal studies department.

Jodie Rubenstein and her husband Alex (and their dog Barnum) moved back to Alexandria, Va., after a two-year stint in Denver.

Matt Connolly completed his first year as an assistant professor of film studies at Minnesota State University, Mankato. He earned his PhD in film studies from the University of Wisconsin-Madison last May. He’s thrilled to see old friends at this year’s 10-year Reunion, especially Sara Beth Hoffman and Laurenellen McCann.

Sophie Reagan writes “I’m in D.C. doing federal consulting at Deloitte but currently living that maternity-leave life. Our daughter Lily was born in April. It’s pretty amazing and totally nuts, and I am beyond grateful to my crew of Wes moms including cousins Rosa Cohen-Cruz ’07 and Stephanie Pfeiffer ’08, and dear friends Emily Dine, Sophia Dumaine, and Ally Lamson.”

Seth Halpern’s tech company is being acquired and integrated into a newly formed venture to build a network of modern and thoughtful therapy practices across the country.

Lastly, Joe Newman writes: “As of January I’ve started at the law firm Fenwick & West, working on privacy issues and focusing on supporting the video game industry. Also, my wife, Allie, and I are expecting a baby girl this August—super excited!”

Thanks for submitting notes!
