Class of 2004’s,
“I had an exciting start to 2006. After a
long Christmas vacation in Ireland and Germany with my
family I settled into a new job with Starwood Hotels and
Resorts as a Designer renovating and building Sheraton
Hotels worldwide. This job is a terrific fit for me and I
thoroughly enjoy every minute of my new career! About 3
weeks ago my boyfriend proposed to me on top of the Empire
State building on a beautiful clear night. It was very
romantic and a true New York experience! We are planning
to tie the knot on Sept 9, 2006 in Ireland with our
families and friends. It's a truly very exciting time in
my life both personally and professionally.”
