Christie Sears Thompson completed her master’s in marriage and family therapy at Regis U. in Aug. She is excited to move on in her new career. In Sept. she started working in a private practice as a marriage and family therapist on her way toward licensure in the state of CO.
On 5/7, Kimberly Gibson-McDonald gave birth to Emma Quinn Uyen-Khanh McDonald. It has been the best adventure of her life so far. She and husband David are already astonished at how fast she has grown! Beyond that, Kimberly says her life has been run-of-the-mill: she and her husband both teach at E.C. Glass High School and live in the sleepy city of Lynchburg.
Megan Knight Bowling and her college sweetheart got married 12/12/12 in Antigua! They just moved back to their hometown of Amherst, and she hopes to start school next summer for an accelerated B.S.N. program. Daughter Siena (named after the city in Italy where she studied abroad) started Kindergarten and her little man Jonah turned 2 in Sept. She regularly visits SBC and fellow classmate Lynsie Steele.
Ginger Tripp McAdams and husband Judson welcomed new baby Eliza on 8/9. Tripp (18 mos.) loves having a baby sister around! Ginger is still teaching at Charlotte Latin School.
Sarah Kidd Burchett moved into a loft in Shockoe Bottom in Richmond. She says she would love to connect with any SBC gals who live in Church Hill or the Bottom! She obtained a personal training certification this spring; fitness continues to be a central part of life for her! She ran the Maymont 8-mi. trail race in Sept. and planned to rappel off the Suntrust building in Oct. to help raise funds for Special Olympics, VA. She was fundraising through mid-Sept.—$1500 meant she would get to wear a webcam on her helmet on the way down to capture the whole thing.
Christina Marchetti left Williams & Connolly, LLP, and moved to Sydney, Australia, to be with her significant other. It’s a major life change, but she figured she would rather come to the end of her life and say ‘I wish I hadn’t’ than ‘I wish I had!’ She now works at the not-for-profit Redkite, which helps young cancer patients up to age 24—quite a change from a glittery law firm! She loves it.
Erin Gibbs had a wonderful weekend in Atlanta, where she visited with Lindsay Woodward Russell ’07 and attended the wedding of Chesley Phillips Gaddis ’03 with Samm Grist ’03, Alisa Cline Berry ’03, Erin Keck Walsh ’03, Christi Rose Hart ’02 and Sarah Farber ’01. Erin is still in CO and loves it. She spends a lot of time enjoying the mountains, trail running and training for her 1st ultra-marathon.
I, Mindy Wolfrom, still live in Houston and work at a wonderful private school. I traveled a ton this past summer and have become an avid salsa dancer. Houston is so diverse that many of my friends are from other countries. I’m trying to learn as much Spanish as I can since so many people speak it here!
