2002: Summer 2014

Posted by

Hello Class of 2002!

I made it through my first London winter and my family and I are now basking in a glorious English summer. (i.e. dropping everything and running outside anytime we see the sun shine!)

This past spring Louise Stephens (Shoemaker) and her husband enjoyed a quick trip to my new city and they had a blast sightseeing and catching a premier league football match! We didn’t get a chance to meet up this trip, but if anyone else makes it over here look me up, I’d love to see you and share a cuppa!

Mandy McHugh (Stevenson) recently made a move too, she is now stationed at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base and she and her husband are living in Dayton, OH.

In addition to all this moving about, I’m excited to share that many congratulations, both personal and professional, are in order for our classmates as of late.

While still running her own company, Tina Wells is now the Academic Director for Wharton’s Leadership in the Business World Program. Additionally, Tina’s fifth book in the Mackenzie Blue series was also released on June 23.

Kim Hart was recently engaged, and she and her fiancé, Brandon, are planning to be married on June 27, 2015. Asheley Walters (Frere) married her husband Jeff on July 10, 2014.  Maggie Piccone (Laabs) married David Piccone on March 15, 2014 in Chestertown, MD.  They honeymooned in Costa Rica and are thrilled to share that they are expecting the arrival of their first child in late December 2014! Tina Bolly (DiTizio) and her husband, Joseph, and 2 year old daughter, Natalie, just welcomed their newest family member, a baby boy, Logan, born on June 16, 2014.

I hope everyone had an excellent summer and got to enjoy some sunshine surrounded by friends and family. I look forward to hearing from you in the next few months and getting to share more updates in our next issue!
