From Angela Zosel McCormick:

In June 2018, I accepted a job in communications for UMW Alumni Relations. I couldn’t be happier to be back on campus! My son Liam is 11, loves UMW basketball games, and hopes to be an Eagle one day. But my daughter Lara, who is is 17 and a senior working on college applications, has no desire to attend Mary Wash—she wants out of the ’Burg ! I guess you can’t win them all…

In my new position, I help to plan Reunion Weekend. I’m so excited to prepare for our 20th Reunion in June of 2020! I hope lots of classmates will come back to campus to celebrate that milestone.

From Rob Eastman-Mullins:

My scenic design for Macbeth was selected for the US exhibition at the Prague Quadrennial, the preeminent, international exposition of performance design; to be held in June 2019 in Prague, Czech Republic.

Also, last year my wife and I established the Eastman-Mullins Scholarship for Theatre at UMW which will be awarded annually to a Theatre student. The first recipient was Erick Boscana (’20).

From Dave Tilman:

I am living and working in Mons, Belgium. I moved here with my family 1 year ago and I am working at a NATO school where I manage a few training courses and teach NATO members how to use GIS so?ware in support of military operations. My three little kids are in local French‐speaking schools and we are traveling around Europe as much as we can. I’ll be moving back to San Diego when my rotation here is over, in 2022.

Jill (Ellis) Frank transitioned from a full-time stay-at-home mom of two girls, to a full-time working mom this Fall.  She works with Best Buddies International to improve the lives of those with disabilities.  Kristine (Reid) Milne spends her workdays making babies! She is the lead manager of a branch of Shady Grove Fertility located in Virginia.  When she’s not adventuring with her two boys, Alison (Martin) Simpson continues to preserve history in St. Augustine, Florida as the historian for the Florida National Guard.   Julie (Houts) Frame is loving life in Sedona, Arizona and is the lead pharmacist for a CVS. Annette (Hibbert) Nelson just had her second son last February, and co-founded Silver Oaks Cooperative School, a non-profit private school in Maryland.

As for me, Jennifer Thomas, my husband and I have dreamed of living in Asheville. We recently made that happen. We are currently unpacking and settling in. I am still self-employed, doing environmental consulting.
