2013: Winter 2016

Posted by

Bonjour, Class of 2013! As always, we’re keeping busy — maybe even too busy! These days, we are working with different organizations, in the midst of additional degrees, and celebrating recent marriages!

Around the world, Kellie Duncan is living in Germany for the next month while being part of the opening team for the Norwegian Escape. In November she’ll set sail to Miami! Jahtay Teh is into his second year as a peace corps volunteer in Zambia and Nick Mudgett has just returned from his time as a peace corps volunteer in Nicaragua.

We have a lot going on around Frederick, too! Ashley Birdsell graduated from Brooklyn College with her Masters in Fine Arts and is the manager of marketing at the Weinberg Center for the Arts. She and her fiancee, Billy Lewis, are living in Frederick, Md. Nicola Sussman is a homeowner! This summer she bought a house near Downtown Frederick and has started the education graduate program at Hood to become a reading specialist; Andrew Bodine is enjoying his position as Assistant Aquatic Center Manager and has started in Hood’s counseling program; and Giovanni Kavota is living in Downtown Frederick and is a company member of The Maryland Ensemble Theatre and a member of Baltimore Improv Group. During the day, he is a training & development coordinator for Country Meadows retirement community. Mi’Kea Bowie Hawkins is teaching Head Start for the YMCA of Frederick and Brett Shelley is Hood College’s Cross Country and Track and Field coach.

In the DMV area, Darcey Heflin is enjoying her new apartment in Alexandria, Va. and Kimi Brunot will be graduating in December from Loyola University Maryland with a Masters of Science in Counseling Psychology, is a homeowner, and looks forward to her May 2016 wedding! Nick Temple is looking forward to a May graduation from Georgetown Law and plans to return to Baltimore to practice; Meladeh Rabie McKinnon married John McKinnon and is enjoying life with her 1-year old son, Kaiden; and I, Elaheh Eghbal, am the marketing manager at Zerion Software, Inc. Continue to make your mark, Class of 2013, and keep in touch! Cheers!
