CLASS OF 2010 | 2018 | ISSUE 2

Greetings, Class of 2010! I hope you enjoy these updates from our classmates around the world. Sam Schilit got engaged to Jeremy Rosenweig and former 48 Home housemates Emily Hoffman and Franni Paley said “I do” to being bridesmaids. Sam is the 2019 laboratory genetics and genomics fellow for Harvard Medical School’s American Board of Medical Genetics and Genomics training program.

Lauren Valentino married Amol Yadav in Mumbai, India, in a multi-day ceremony that included lots of Bollywood dancing, delicious Indian food, and traditional rituals. Lauren and Amol met while in graduate school at Duke University, where Lauren is finishing her doctorate. They tied the knot in front of 500 of their closest friends and family, with strong representation from the Wesleyan contingent: Isabel Huston, Alice Maggio, Becky (Weiss) Roberts, Nistha Shrestha, and Tony Zosherafatain were all in attendance. And yes, the fight song was sung!

Katie (Zackin) Roose and Rob Roose ’04 have lived in Portland, Ore., for two years now. Katie is a pediatric nurse practitioner at a busy primary care clinic. They are expecting their first child in December.

Yun Wang now calls the Lone Star state his home. He completed his MBA in Austin from Texas McCombs and is moving to Dallas as a management consultant for Deloitte. He will use his newly-learned business jargon and over-hyped data science to help companies signal that they are winning at the game of capitalism.

After completing her MBA last year, Hallie Coffin-Gould joined the general management track of Thermo Fisher Scientific’s Graduate Leadership Development Program. She has just started her second rotation working in digital marketing and sales management. Hallie and her fiancé bought a house together in Pittsburgh and look forward to getting married this fall.

Colin Campbell married Carly Robinson in a beautiful ceremony in Bristol, R.I. The surf and turf dinner was positively decadent and the ceremony was well attended by the Class of 2010 with the likes of Woody Redpath and Eliza Newman, Lonny Blumenthal and Cate Haring, Gavin Brennan, Zac Rosensohn, Mark Murphy, Sam Robinson, Ram Sivalingam, Jon Killeen, and Sam Campbell-Decock. These Cardinals did a great job of showing a similarly large contingent of Williams College grads how to party, how to eat macarons, and how to dance.

Gina Yeomans and Nate “Shakedown” Green ’09 welcomed their son, Auggie, to the world on March 8. He’s been growing like crazy and is almost ready to wear the Wesleyan onesie given to him by grandparents Alison Zaeder ’83 and John Green ’81.

Jonna Humphries is leading marketing at Moog Music, Inc. and is on the path toward a MBA through Duke University’s Fuqua School of Business.

Alice Maggio has moved to Brooklyn to work an internship with Phil Thompson, deputy mayor of strategic policy initiatives.

After completing her MFA in art writing at the School of Visual Arts in New York, Emma Drew moved back home to San Francisco where she is coediting a book on public art and strategizing for life as a freelance writer.

Kait Halibozek got engaged! She and her fiancé both work in the film industry in Los Angeles and are planning a fall 2019 wedding.

Casey Simchik married Robbie Shaw in Napa, Calif., in June on National Rosé Day. The ceremony was spectacular with beautiful (albeit windy) weather and picturesque examples of the Napa Valley’s legendary viticulture scene. The dance floor barely survived the moves of Woody Redpath, Eliza Newman, Jon Killeen, Meredith Holmes, Anika Fischer, Sarah Hoefle, Matt Ward, Erin Fitzsimmons, Ellika Healy, Kyle MacDonald, Ingrid Parl, Mark Murphy, and Jeremy Kaminer.

Finally, a big congratulation is in order from the Class of 2010 to the coaching staff and players of the Cardinal Men’s Lacrosse team, which won the 2018 Division III National Championship in Foxborough, Mass., this past spring. The atmosphere was “lit” at Gillette Stadium and the Class of 2010 was well represented in a crowd of well over 1,000 alumni, friends, and family who cheered the Cardinals to victory.

That’s all for this issue! Here’s hoping everyone is well and as always, feel free to pass along your life updates anytime.
