I Left My Heart in San Francisco…and Silicon Valley…and Phoenix

This year the CHRLS hosted several Fall HRIR Alumni Socials in Phoenix, San Francisco and Silicon Valley.  Alums enjoyed great food and networking, connected with their fellow MA-HIR alumni, and heard updates from the program.


The Phoenix-Area HRIR Alumni Social (above) brought together, from left, Sarah Merkle, ’09; Tyree (Zapata) Boze, ’06; Mary Kate Gross, ’16; and Joanna Mark, ’11 in late September.


In early November, several HRIR alums gathered in downtown San Francisco (above) to meet and greet one another: Victor Assad, ’88; Jessica (Roberts) Hooper, ’14; Tina Liu, ’06; Brandon Lukach, ’04; Sam Piell, ’07; Karlin Sorenson, ’98; and Sandy (Tollefsen) Wingard, ‘04. Pictured here are Sandy (Tollefsen) Wingard and Victor Assad.


During a lunch held in Silicon Valley in early November, several HRIR alumnae shared a sizzling lunch and some lively conversation.
