Class of 2013 Winter 2020 Class Note

The Class of 2013 needs someone to write this column twice a year. How about a belated new year’s resolution to help? It’s a simple job, and the Alumni Association helps you find news. Contact to learn more.

Here’s a sampling of what’s happening with classmates.

Krystal Martin was promoted in the Manchester, NH, office of Baker Newman Noyes. She is now manager in the risk and business advisory practice, and has been with the firm since 2014.

While working as a movie usher after grad school, Patrick Pittis wrote a sci-fi thriller Rubble, which Universal Pictures has purchased. The communications major moved to California with his wife, classmate Meghan Ballard, after graduating from UMaine. They worked several jobs to save money before Patrick studied film and earned a master’s at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles. During his stint as a movie usher, Patrick wrote the movie script, which has a sci-fi twist. Patrick says that he brainstorms during his two-hour one-way commute, and then writes at home.

Kasey Ladd works at  Northern Light Gynecology in Bangor. After graduating with a nursing degree from UMaine, Kasey earned her M.S. in nursing, nurse-midwifery in Kentucky.

Please consider helping the Class of 2013 by writing the class column and helping classmates be informed of each other’s news.
