Hello, Class of ’99! By the time you read this, summer will be basically over; I’m sure you’ve had some great vacations and time with family and friends. Please email me with updates so it all can be shared in the next class column; we’d love to hear from you! For this edition, I only heard from one person…thank you to Michelle Chao Pearson for responding with her news. Michelle and her husband left Washington, DC for suburban living and built a new house in Clarksburg, MD in 2015. They have two fun and loving daughters, Norah Jane, 4, and Kyla Grace, 2. Michelle stays at home with the girls and works part-time as a Child and Adolescent Psychotherapist with a small practice in Maryland; she was trained in neurofeedback in the fall of 2016. Several times a year, Michelle gets together with several other Hood alums: Dawn Griffith ’97, M.A., ’03, C ’03, Crystal Carr Townsend ’97, Christine Farrell Walsh ’98, Jenikka Joy Deering ’98, and April Weaver Bishop. Most recently, Michelle started working as a Wellness Advocate for DōTerra essential oils. Until next time, take good care and keep in touch!
