Jonathan “Bjorn” Adler is working on a Ph.D. in clinical psychology at Northwestern Univ. in Chicago…. Karen Bilodeau has joined the law firm of McTeague Higbee Case Cohen Whitney & Toker, P.A., in Topsham as an associate. She graduated cum laude from the Univ. of Maine School of Law…. John Chapin is enrolled in the MD/Ph.D. program at the Univ. of Vermont School of Medicine. He is in his third of seven years…. In Singapore, Michelle Chong has joined MediaCorp Studios. Most of her work will probably be on Chinese-language shows…. Jia-Horn Lin is at Columbia Univ.’s School of International and Public Affairs…. Lauren Lochner is back on Nantucket after completing her training as a massage therapist. She was planning a several-month trip cross-country and then to Thailand. She’d love to visit along the way. Drop her a note at lochnerlauren@hotmail.com…. Emily Evans MacLaury and Kyle Roman ’99 are in Minnesota; she’s teaching first grade at a Waldorf School…. Emily Pritchard was among the extras in Master and Commander. “You can see the back of my head for sure in one shot: I was standing when I wasn’t supposed to stand,” she said to a reporter in her hometown newspaper in Randolph, Vt. Emily won the part (even though the director wanted men) because she is one of a small number of people who can sail Tall Ships. It took an hour each day to transform her into a grizzled male sailor. While the only weather she battled during filming was created artificially, she had enough experience with real weather during her 19 months on the Picton Castle, a Tall Ship training vessel…. Sarah Terwilliger McDonough lives in Bristol, R.I., and is pursuing a master’s in higher education administration at Boston College. She expected to finish in May…. Paul Urbanczyk is working on a Ph.D. at Stanford…. Andrew Watterson redevelops historic buildings into “green” commercial offices and residential apartments in Cleveland.
