Meg Foreman '84

Meg Foreman '84 says that without Visitation, she would not have felt as confident when she headed off to West Point after graduation.

And today, she's finding that the wise words of St. Francis de Sales - to "be who you are and be that well" - are guiding her as she continues to discern her next steps following her retirement from the Army a few years back.

Meg recently visited campus with her service dog, Mickey, to bring a little cheer on the last day of exams for students. 

Claire O'Rourke '03

Claire was in the final steps of planning her wedding with one big to-do left: getting her marriage license for D.C. But Claire and her fiancé found that- with just one week left until their big day - in the face of the government shutdown, issuing marriage licenses had been deemed non-essential.

Colette Young '07

With two Masters degrees under her belt and a doctorate in the works, Colette Young '07 is a lifelong learner - a skill she imparts daily to her students as a teacher and coach both at Columbia Secondary School and Columbia University. Beyond the classroom, Colette is an accomplished musician and vocalist, which recently brought her back to DC for a performance at the White House. 

Carolyn Callahan Keller '79

After losing her hair to a second cancer diagnosis eight years ago, Carolyn Keller founded EBeauty, a wig exchange program for women battling all forms of cancer. The premise of the organization is simple: A woman who has come to the end of her journey with cancer donates her wig to the organization, which then sanitizes, styles, and repurposes the wig for another woman who has just been diagnosed. It's a beautiful way for the newly diagnosed to feel inspired and connected to the women who have battled the disease before them, and at the same time a cathartic experience for a woman who is ready to let go of what can be a physical reminder of illness.
