Eleven years in NYC didn’t take the Greensboro out of Tyler, and now he’s home again. As the Director of Strategy & Business Development at Global Denim Manufacturing, Tyler is taking advantage of Greensboro’s continued growth and the ensuing economic opportunity. He’s pleased to note that the city has managed to retain its “ease of living” despite its expanding proportions.
As much as Neal loves the natural beauty of his former surroundings in Seattle, he’s glad that he, his wife, and their daughter are now calling Greensboro home again.
She left Brunswick, Georgia to return to Greensboro, a home she can truly afford to invest in. Lauren told us that while living in Georgia, she hit a point where she was “over the commute from the mainland to Jekyll Island where I was working. I was also looking at moving and rents were climbing down there. Very difficult to find affordable housing and a community of locals in an area geared towards tourist dollars.”
Following spending some scorching hot summers in Arizona, Justin came back to Greensboro – and the TREES (he’s pretty excited about this latter part, and we have to agree)! Joining him are his wife, Jamie, and their 3 kids.
After time away living in hot spots like Brooklyn and Venice Beach, Greensboro finally called Cathy back home. She’s thrilled to be living somewhere where she doesn’t have to share a wall with anyone else (after 22 years living in various apartments) and with a nice yard for her dog to explore.
To the west coast and back again, Greensboro native Elijah Cone has returned from Los Angeles with the addition of his fiance, Daixi (who grew up in nearby Charlotte).
After graduating from UNCG in 2006, April Albritton’s career path in collegiate athletics moved her around the country for 10 years. April lived in Seattle, Charleston, Long Island, and most recently, Charlotte.
Amy Alvino has officially boomeranged back (now with the welcome additions of her husband and son!). Prior to coming home, Amy lived in NY and was pursuing theater and working in the fashion industry for companies like Dior and Lilly Pulitzer. She also met her husband during that time. Love for her hometown prevailed; they married here in Greensboro, a wedding attended by many of their new friends (who, of course, fell in love with Greensboro during their visit).
Brian Wells Daniel made his return to Greensboro just a couple of months ago. Brian is a double boomerang! First, he moved to VA for grad school, then returned to his undergrad home at Guilford College as an administrator. After that, he spent time in PA and KY, before heading to Asheville, NC - his most recent location prior to making his way back home to work at UNCG as the Assistant Dean of Students. Brian is thrilled to be close to family and long-time friends once again. He plans to get re-established on a local kickball league and looks forward to scouting out great hiking spots in our area.
Crystal Kiser and her family are newly back to Greensboro. With her son now 5 years old, she is especially excited to be able to share this special city and its culture with him.
