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
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.

Carmen Allred navigated her way back to Greensboro after living in both Orlando, FL and High Point, NC… and now she works as Taproom Manager at one of our town’s most beloved drinking spots, Little Brother Brewing. Carmen is loving the easy, affordable access to travel via Greensboro’s Piedmont Triad International Airport as well as being back “in the middle of the greatest state in the country.” When she’s not at work, catch her having a cocktail at GIA or having a meal at one of the many great dining destinations in town.
