AJ Lyman '05 is currently working for FEMA as a Voluntary Agency Liaison down in Galveston, Texas on the ongoing Hurricane Ike recovery efforts. He spends his time getting Long Term Recovery Committees to speak with all parties involved in the process then guiding and counseling their progress. Other than that he spends his time hanging out on the beach and enjoying life.
Ryan Yates '05 is in his fifth year of chiropractic school at Palmer College of Chiropractic, where he has specialized in a technique called NUCCA where we work with the brainstem to correct autonomic nervous system dysfunction. He works with those who have autism (the entire spectrum), Parkinson's, MS, GB, etc. He loves what he does. He was a Lilly and was accepted to medical school, but he wanted more than drugs and surgery to help his patients. In June he will be moving to Seattle, WA for his NUCCA residency (three years) and intends on opening a practice in Coeur d'Alene, ID thereafter.
Gregory Peckham'82 is proud to say that he is serving a year-long tour of duty in Landstuhl, Germanny. He is a respiratory therapist in civilian life as well as in the Navy Reserve. He volunteered to go and render care to casualties from Iraq & Afghanistan that come to Landstuh Regional Medical Center (the largest military hospital outside the continental US).
Mark Humbert '74 He considered himself a successful alumnus until Feb. 26, when Scripps-Howard advised all of the employees of the Rocky Mountain News (at the time Denver's most popular newspaper) that they were publishing their final issue on that night (for the next morning). One thing his wife, Allison, and Mark have had going for them for the past five years is their community magazine, Local Color, in Brighton, Colo., and their e-mail/online news sheet, The Daily Post. Both of those seem to be succeeding, supplemented by the Brighton Guide, which they published for the Chamber of Commerce. They have done a lot in their community: as founders/sponsors of Help for Homes, a twice-a-year paint-up, fix-up effort to help the disabled and senior citizens; as donors of a $1,000 scholarship to a Brighton school district senior who indends to study writing/journalism; as financial and volunteer supporters of the Boys & Girls Club and the heART of Brighton campaign to renovate their Armory as a performing arts center. Still, that newspaper income, especially for the past 11 years, is sorely missed by Mark Humbert. His website is localcolormag.com if you want to see his publication.
I would like to update the Alumni section with names of Alumni and what they are currently doing (job, family, etc.) Hopefully I can get a wide variety of responses soon so I can update this section so prospective students and current brothers can see the great things Phi Kappa Psi's alumni are doing. Thanks.
