Leslie Lai writes, “I met up with several Wes friends recently! Xian Hui Ang ’15 and I visited Michael Leung ’15 in Philadelphia in late October. A rugby game, several happy hours, and a weekend long of nonstop chats later, my mind and body were replenished. I enjoyed grabbing ‘work’ lunches with Reese Sy ’13 in Cambridge where our offices are just a few blocks away from each other. Angela and Paul Hanakata and I got our kiddos together for the first time. Nothing beats seeing new friendships form.” 

Chelsie Green writes, “I moved to Los Angeles in the summer after working at Wes for a year, which was quite the experience! It’s been great to reconnect with so many people from Wes over here (sometimes by accident, which is always a sweet surprise). I’m working as a psychotherapist and co-writing a book about college mental health with another Wes alum, Christopher Willard ’01, coming out via Oxford University Press next year. I’m also completing a program to become an Ayurvedic practitioner to fold that into my holistic wellness business. Otherwise, I’m mostly obsessed with American Girl dolls, the Norwegian language, and skin-care products.”

Isabel Stern writes, “My Wesleyan sweetheart, Donnie Cimino ’15, and I got married! We had tons of Wes alums in attendance ranging from Class of ’74 to Class of ’21! The fight song was sung.”

Reunion note: Chelsie and I are very much looking forward to celebrating our 10-year reunion on campus, May 23–26, 2023. It is amazing how quickly time is beginning to move. Don’t forget to book lodging soon. I am told rooms on campus will be in very short supply and therefore very expensive! If you wait for registration to come out, it will likely be too late to secure something close to campus and/or affordable. In speaking to several of our class members who have already booked on Airbnb, there are certainly great choices available, but they are going quickly, and prices are increasing!

Go Wes!!
