Alumna Profile: Sarah Nosal '96, A Career Devoted to Service
Moira McLaughlin

When Sarah Nosal ‘96 was four years old, she convinced her little sister that she had healing powers. This was a ruse of course and her sister quickly realized the truth, but the thought of having healing powers gave Sarah an idea.

“As it became clearer that my healing powers did not resolve all suffering, I decided I should become a doctor so I could heal them for real,” Sarah said.

Alice Smith '95 Will Perform The Kennedy Center Next Month
Moira McLaughlin

Alice Smith '95, who once sang with the Visitation Gospel Choir, is a professional musician based out of LA. She will release her third album this year (as yet unnamed) and will perform her hometown on Feb. 10 at The Kennedy Center.

"In general I'm a person that feels like if I do my best to be really honest and true, and my authentic self, and if I feel free in that and good about being that, than I feel like that's when you get a lot out of music."

St. Francis de Sales' words, "Be who you are and be that well" obliviously rang true for Alice.

Remembrance Tree Keeps Love Alive
Moira McLaughlin

When Moira Griffith '15, graduated from Visitation, she left something tangible behind on campus: The Remembrance Tree, a tree with ribbons tied to its branches representing people who have suffered from cancer. Next to the tree is a container of more ribbons, the different colors indicating the different kinds of cancer. Anyone is invited to add a ribbon to the tree to remember a loved one who has struggled with cancer.

The social justice that Visitation teaches can take many forms in a Visitation graduate. For Mary Gasperetti '74, a senior designer at the Holocaust Museum in D.C., working at the museum is not simply a job, it's also a mission.
