A good friend of ours, Ashley Rippe, contacted me because she had just won the prestigious Lowell Milken Center’s first internship and needed a headshot for press releases and other media publications. Taken from their website www.lowellmilkencenter.org, “The Lowell Milken Center Internship is designed to provide early career educators with an opportunity to learn firsthand how projects teaching respect and understanding can make a difference in the world.” Ashley has been developing ways to teach students more about diverse cultures through music education. A huge congratulations to her and her upcoming endeavors!!!

And then typically, I could not help but snap a quick picture of Remy, their Jack Russell terrier!
