Kate Mitchell is enjoying her toddler Ivy and still teaching public school in Durham, North Carolina. She gets baby hand-me-downs from Rachel Wertheimer ’06!

Hi from Brooklyn where for the past three years Matthew Montesano has been working at the NYC Department of Health. As the worst of the pandemic was setting in back in 2020, he was pulled from his regular job into the COVID response work, where he led efforts to share, publish, and communicate data on the pandemic. Then when the vaccine arrived, he helped out at vaccination sites. It’s been a tiring couple of years, and he is in awe of colleagues in public health and health care who have kept working and adapting under difficult circumstances.

Matt Goisman became the communications manager for the Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences at the start of November 2021. With the new job came a move back to Boston.

After over a decade in the journalism business, Niv Elis has taken the helm of the communications department at the Jewish Federations of North America, one of the largest community-based philanthropies in the country.

Catesby Holmes is still married to Greg Morril and they still live in Brooklyn, New York. Some things don’t change. But Catesby joined the pandemic-era great resignation last year when she left her job as international editor at the online news site The Conversation to accept a fellowship at the Harvard Shorenstein Center on Media, Politics and Public Policy, where she is (remotely) researching and publishing on the life cycle of disinformation. Greg continues to work as a lawyer at the office of the attorney general of New York, prosecuting public corruption.

Robyn Schroeder and her husband welcomed their son Judah in June, in Williamsburg, Viriginia, where she is now teaching and running public history projects at the National Institute of American History & Democracy at William & Mary.

The Egolf clan, Kevin, Amy ’07, and Aurora (age 7) moved 20 minutes outside of Providence, Rhode Island, to Rehoboth, a rural town in Massachusetts. The family is enjoying space, quiet, and lots of fresh air. Kevin now lives 25 minutes from his first-year roommate and senior-year housemate, Scott Clarkson. The two are planning to do a southeast New England brewery tour.

Naomi Ekperigin’s half-hour comedy special debuted on Netflix in December, as part of their series The StandUps. Filmed in August 2021 in New York City, it was named “The Best Netflix Debut of the Year” by The New York Times. Watch it if you feel like laughing!

Colin Vaughn-Casey, his husband Jon, and son Curtis still live in New York City, and Colin now works at DriveWealth, a fintech startup. Trying to make the best of a bad situation, they have been taking advantage of working remotely in California, the Poconos, and elsewhere.
