'93
Bonini, Sarah

Sarah Bonini J.D. '93 has joined the Campus Ministry staff as senior administrative assistant. Sarah has a long history with SCU, beginning with her work in Orradre Library in 1989. She served as a resident director for several years as well, and most recently worked with the Northern California Innocence Project as project manager since 2010. We are thrilled to have her share her administrative and pastoral gifts with our team.

Sarah will carry on the custom of sharing bereavement notices with the campus community on behalf of our members who have lost loved ones and wish to share that information. So many have found this tradition a means of both offering and receiving support in a time of grief.  It is our policy to send out information only if the SCU member wishes it to be shared. Please send any such information directly to Sarah at sbonini@scu.edu. You may include information about funeral or memorial services as well.

Trevor, Nicole (Haims)

Nicole Trevor Haims ’95 writes, "I received my MFA in Creative Writing (poetry) from the University of Iowa Writers' Workshop in 1998 and quickly realized there weren't a lot of jobs for poets, so I started a career in publishing. Working for Wiley Publishing was the best first job in the world. It allowed me to put my creative, editorial, and writing skills to use, and it challenged me to learn emerging technologies. Since 2010 I've worked at Flintridge Preparatory School as the Director of Communications. Also in 2010 I married Jason Trevor, who works at his alma mater, Caltech, as a senior research engineer. We have a pretty wonderful life and currently live in La Canada Flintridge, Calif."
