2001 There are many people to congratulate in this issue. Kristy Bois and Nathan Oatman were engaged in Vail last summer, and they are planning a mountain wedding for next June. Sarah Laidlaw and Martin Wilde were also engaged last summer in Boston. Becky Welsh ’02 and William Turek were engaged last summer, and they are planning a wedding next summer. Also, Brooke Alexander and Bill Raisbeck ’00 were married on Labor Day Weekend in New York. There were many UVMers in attendance, including Amanda Starbuck, Kristy Bois, Annie Howard, Shira Tabib, Mike Rachlin, Lindsey Cutter, Sean Coffey ’00, Wally Fulweiler ’00, Gemma Scallon ’00, Matt Cardile ’00, Michael Jacobs ’00, Chris Teitz ’00, and me to name just a few. It was a fun weekend for all the festivities began Friday night and ended with the wedding on Sunday. As for other news, Feliz Soyak wrote that she is “trying to succeed in a career as an artist (visual/painting/photo.)” She said it’s quite challenging. Feliz was living in Boston until last fall, and then she moved home to Charlotte, N.C., to save money. She had two shows in Boston last spring, both at small Italian restaurants, Sage and Paulo’s. Currently, she is in Tokyo working on a few new projects and possibly some new shows. She was there for three months last year, working with Volvo Cars Japan, and she had a show for one month at a gallery/café. Mike Rachlin was also in Japan at the same time working as an English teacher, so they saw each other occasionally. Feliz is planning on moving to Seattle this fall. You can check out her latest work at www.filizsoyak.com. Bob Wilkins wrote that he is working in commercial real estate development in Fort Lauderdale. He has been in southeast Florida for the past two years, and he enjoys his community and his church very much. Bob also wrote that he just bought a used surfboard, and he “hits up the waves when they exist.” Annie Howard is still living in New York City, and she is planning on running a marathon in Dublin in October to benefit the Leukemia Society. Good luck! Sarah Clarke wrote that she was accepted into the rehabilitation and mental health counseling master’s program at the University of South Florida in Tampa. She is looking forward to beginning the program this fall. Katie Noble wrote that she is living on the Upper East Side of Manhattan and is searching for a new roommate.

2002 Hi, everyone! I want to start with congratulations to Becky Welsh and Will Turek ’01, who were engaged last June. These college sweethearts plan to marry next summer. I also heard from Mea Rupley, who has been living in Phoenix, Ariz., for the past year. She is working for Maxim Healthcare Services in their wellness program. Mea and Dave Newman ‘01 are living in Phoenix. Felice Roe wrote that she has spent the past year at Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine in St. Kitts. She explained that the program is very demanding. She rarely has free time, but she couldn’t be happier.
