Hello 2001ers! It seems so long since we all shared news, but life is never at a standstill for our class. HUGE hats off to Heather Brigham Dellerman who had a busy 2014. Heather’s family welcomed baby number 3, Layla Arabella, on Jan. 9, 2014 and her husband was selected as a Major in the U.S. Army. In February 2014, Heather received her Ph.D. in public health with a specialization in epidemiology from Walden Univ., and in July 2014 she was the recipient of the Carol Ann Watson Award for outstanding volunteer service to military members and their families. Wow! Me (Heidi), hubby and big sis Rémi are enjoying our newest addition, Andrew, who arrived in November. Thank goodness he’s a champion sleeper to counteract his sister’s energy! Penny McLaughlin Purtell, husband Colin, and 5-year-old big brother Jacob welcomed their second as well when daughter Hailey Ann was born on January 6, 2015. Congrats to Katie McGowan, husband and 5-year-old big sister, Genevieve, who are also living up a second round of pattering feet, Simon Alexander Elliott born July 8, 2014. Wedding bells rang last year for Carolina Guevara married to Aguedo Cruz Jr. in a private ceremony on August 15, 2014 in Towson, Maryland. Niki McElroy and husband Toren Grant also tied the knot on at The Westin at National Harbor, Maryland on November 1, 2014. Sister Tammy McElroy McNish 05 was matron of honor and Mandy Stevenson McHugh ’02 was a bridesmaid. Hoodlums in attendance included Gina Long Dillman ’02, M.S.’07 and husband Mike Dillman ’02, M.S.’06, Tiffany Still Grant ’05, M.A.’07, C’08 and Lisa Zaleski-Larsen. Lisa also reported that she joined a dermatology practice part-time at the Dermatology Center for Skin Diseases in Coronado, Calif. Congratulations to all; keep the news coming!
