What’s shaking, Class of 2013? Somehow it still feels like graduation was just yesterday and yet, this year’s graduating class came to Hood the fall after our graduation…

Kellie Duncan is living in Queens, N.Y. and is the family relations associate for Oasis Day Camps; Blair Starnes has relocated to the Boston area and is a lab supervisor at the Boston Veterans Affairs Research Institute; and Ian Ivory is living in Germany and working on his masters in cognitive science. Kimi Brunot Humphreys is working as a Career Adviser in the St. Mary’s College of Maryland Career Development Center; MJ Swicegood is an evaluation manager at Lonza in Walkersville, M.D.; and Kathy Lee is a Slot Tech II at Maryland Live Casino. Katie Techtmann Lamont is a learning support teacher at Paradise Elementary School; Casey Dunn is working for Washington County Public Schools; and Kate Adams Anthony is in her fourth year as an elementary school teacher and will be completing her masters degree in May. Ashley Birdsell Lewis has returned to Hood as an adjunct professor in the business department; and Nicola Sussman is in her second year of grad school in the reading specialist program at Hood and is a proud aunt to her first nephew. Elaheh Eghbal is the marketing manager at Zerion; Nick Temple has been sworn into the Maryland bar and is clerking for Judge Pamela J. White; and Gina Bonomo celebrated her first anniversary working with the Howard County Government and recently bought a home in Baltimore.

There are many engagements and marriages to celebrate, too! Blair Starnes is engaged to Matthew Dykeman and is looking forward to a 2017 wedding; Ashley Birdsell Lewis and Billy Lewis finally tied the knot in October; and MJ Swicegood and Geoff Huntoon were married in September.
