Hello from Boston to UVMs Millennium Class! My name is
Sara Kinnamon. From now on, I will be the author of our class notes, so
please submit your updates to me. I would like to begin my first-ever
column with a special thank you to Maren Christensen for her Y2K column-writing
efforts for the past three years. Thanks, Maren! Now for my update: After
graduation, I took six months off to paint and read and prepare to start
my job. Most of that time was spent in Paris. I returned to the States
in time to start work in November 2000. I have been with the same firm
since then and work is going well. I am still running. I have competed
for the Greater Boston Track Club, completed my first marathon, ran some
road races, and did a few triathlons over the last few years. My big news:
I recently got engaged to my UVM engineering study buddy Oliver Fritsch.
Oliver and I are hoping that many of our UVM roommates, classmates, and
teammates will be able to make it to our New Years wedding in Burlington.
Katie Kelly is working at Goodwin Proctor LLP as their legal recruiting
coordinator. Katie is happily engaged to Darin Day. They are planning
a July 2004 wedding in Vermont. Matt Bloomer is living in Boston. He is
a big Red Sox fan, and hes my source for Red Sox tickets. Matt is
trying to decide which law school to attend this fall. He plans to stay
in Boston. Jeff Gavin wrote, Life here in California has been good.
I just got a summer internship with Hillerich and Bradesby (the makers
of Louisville Hockey) designing and manufacturing composite hockey sticks.
Other than that, I will finish my masters in material science and
engineering here at Stanford next March, and I hope to be working with
Hillerich Bradesby after that. Rusty Japikse wrote that he moved
to the UK in 2001 and is pursuing a PhD. His research focus is on engineering
design within the aerospace industry. In his spare time he is involved
in rowing for his college, Wolfson. Before going to England, he traveled
and improved his photography. Jay Carpenter is working with his family
in starting an import business. He lives in Boston but spends lots of
time on the road. Hes always looking to catch up with UVM alumni
and would love to receive email messages at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Mollie Monahan is working on a PhD in college student personnel at the
University of Maryland in College Park. She also works as the universitys
