Kelly Wood Erickson: I just started a new job in a different school district as a K-5 reading specialist, loving it so far. I miss my first graders, but I’m enjoying new challenges and opportunities! My husband Steve is finally stationed back in Hampton Roads, and we’re all excited about that. Jack (14) starts high school this fall and is still obsessed with all things basketball. Sophie (12) will be in 7th grade this year and continues to play soccer. They’re growing up so fast!
Julie Brooks Nyquist: Our family will be moving to Chicago at the end of 2012 where my husband Stephen has taken a position with Ernst and Young. I completed 10 years at the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation and am looking forward to the next adventure (TBD). Our son Andrew (3) is looking forward to snow and being closer to grandparents.
Kelleigh Klym Friesen: I went to the SBC riding reunion in April and had a wonderful time seeing old friends and making new ones. We have three foals and all seem to be doing well. Ava (4) has a little pony, Tippy-Toes, and was in her first lead-line. Pediatrics is super and I am thrilled we have a new colleague to assist with clinical coverage and teaching. I hope to be out in Va. next spring.
Brandy Beck: After 16 years in Los Angeles, my daughter Dasha (7) and I have moved to N.Y.C. Looking forward to seeing Vixens more regularly now that I’m on the east coast again!
Rosanna Jones Thruman: I live in Papillion, Neb., and have a private practice in psychology in Omaha and one in Council Bluffs, Iowa, and practice in both states. My oldest son (22) is on his own managing a fitness center. My other two sons are at home in high school and junior high school. My husband manages a fitness center; we keep very busy with sports and are getting ready to look at colleges again. We travel with my husband’s power lifting and see family in Calif., Va. and Fla. If anyone wants to stop by when in the Midwest, look me up!
Allison Novellino: I have been keeping up with Sallie McIlheran Wunner who is living in Fresing, Germany. She will be in Dallas at the Norwood Flynn Gallery November 10-11, 2012 if any Dallas area alums are interested in seeing her.
Elizabeth Horsley: I have been busy moving into a new house this summer. I’m still in Richmond working at Williams Mullen and was recently selected at a Va. “Super Lawyer” in the area of trust and estate litigation. I’ve been riding my horse in any free time and have loved catching up with Lisa Waldrup Hammerschmidt at the local shows.
Sallie McIlheran Wunner: This year has been a busy one. I joined a delegation from Ft. Worth, Texas, in April and wet to Guiyang, China, with the Fort Worth Sister Cities Organization and represented Fort Worth as an artist. I also had a showing of drawings in Vienna, Austria, in March at the “base-level” gallery where I am represented here in Europe. 11/10/12, I will be having a solo-exhibition at the Norwood Flynn Gallery in Dallas, Texas. I am really excited that the mayor of Freising, Germany, will be flying in for this event and saying some words at the opening! You all are welcome to come join us. I would be more than happy to see any of my classmates! In case you would like to see some of my art work, my website is www.sallie-mcilheran.de.
Parker Pearson: Nothing exciting to report—same ol’ same ol’. Sometimes that is just fine!
Amy Donnelly Tobik: Our family moved from Fla. to Fort Mill, S.C., over the summer when Siemens transferred my husband, Steve, to the Charlotte, N.C., facility. After eight years as the main feature writer for a Fla. newspaper, I now work from home as a technical writer for a financial website. Daughter Katie (16) travels with her new high school marching band and daughter Emily (13) keeps us busy with her intense Charlotte United soccer schedule.
