Do you live in upstate New York and wish you had more contact with other former JETs in the area? Feeling left out because you’re far from the JETAANY hub in Manhattan? My name is Kate Chevarley (ALT in Niigata-ken, 2004-2006), and I will be moving to Ithaca in August to begin my MBA at Cornell. After my time on the JET Program, I worked as a fundraiser for two and a half years at Harvard Medical School and served as Treasurer of the New England JET Alumni Association. I will be launching a new Finger Lakes subchapter upon my arrival in Ithaca and hope to connect with other ex-JETs in the area! Potential events include nihongo-dake dinners, hanami, wine tastings, and other social and cultural activities to promote networking among JET alumni.
Please contact Kate Chevarley at fingerlakes (at) jetaany [dot] org for more information.
