I've recently moved to Somerville with fellow disco alums Whitney "Quackos" Kakos '00 and Betsy Stubblefield '98.5. I see Brown alums everywhere, every day. There are now six, count em, six Brown alums who play for Lady Godiva here in Boston, and we're definitely the youth and wheels of the team. We're emabarking on another season of defending the national title after a hard-fought victory over Fury of 17-16 at sunset last year. This year, qualification for next summer's World Championships in Finland depends on the claiming of the national championship. As for life outside of ultimate, I'm working for a renewable energy and energy conservation company, where I provide resources and energy modeling services to builders and architects to help them build better residential buildings (single-family and multi-family). Then I test the buildings to see how well the builders and architects did. "Because we often fumble through life, we stumble upon our true selves" - it's actually my ideal job right now. I got here through alumni networking, strangely enough. Anyone interested in working in this field is certainly welcome to contact me, and I can put you in touch with pretty interesting people. See you all at Huck-a-hunk!

I am currently living in Boston. I spent last year living and working in New Zealand (in the small city of Dunedin), traveling around that beautiful country (and playing lots of coed ultimate). After New Zealand, I returned to the states via Hawaii, where my boyfriend and I played at Club Worlds with the New Zealand coed team. That was an amazing experience, both because of the beautiful locale and the high level of ultimate we got to play and watch. Our team actually made it to the quarterfinals, being the only non-american team to make it to the coed quarters. After Hawaii I returned to Boston and played the fall season with a brand new team called Brute Squad. Here in Boston I work for Tuft-NE Medical Center doing genetics research of fruit flies- fun stuff! In a couple of weeks I will be travelling down to (sunny?) altlanta to play a fun spring tournament with a bunch of other disco alums, which hopefully will kick start my training for next season... I am also currently coaching a brand new college women's team: Brandeis Banshee.
