Schiavone Hannibal, Angela (Schiavone)

Angela Schiavone ’07 married her longtime love, James Hannibal, at the Rengstorff House in Mountain View on Oct. 18, 2014. They were surrounded by friends and family under clear blue skies. Her and her husband run a wedding photography business, ShootAnyAngle (http://shootanyangle.com/weddings/), so they trained their own side shooters to handle the wedding pictures. There were a lot of special touches for the day: there were "Hidden Mickey Mouses" around the ceremony and reception, the bride's bouquet included trinkets from family members who had passed, the groom wore a wooden bowtie in memory of his grandfather who had passed, there were antique books and cameras to showcase their passions, the cake stand was made by the Father of the Bride, the Father Daughter dance was a recording of the bride singing, and the bride's shoes contained around 1,000 Swarovski crystals that she had attached by hand. It was a perfect day! Maren Lovgren ’06 and Hayley Lovgren ’08 served as bridesmaids (and they are the groom's cousins)!

Rocha, Stephanie

Stephanie Rocha '00, J.D. '09 appeared in the Silicon Valley Business Journal’s 2014 40 Under 40 list. She is an associate attorney at Miller Morton Cailat & Nevis LLP, where Rocha represents developers, builders and prime contractors in construction litigation, including defect and payment disputes. She also represents real estate agents and brokers, homeowners, landlords, tenants and other individuals and entities in a variety of real estate- and business-related matters.

A Santa Clara native, Rocha started her career at a semiconductor company in Santa Clara County. She quickly moved up the ranks in the human resources department and — unfortunately, as the recession began to hit — was involved in handling company layoffs, exposing her to legal employment claims and piquing her interest in law.
 
Her experience at this time also included working as employee relations manager for a biotech company, where she was able to cultivate her newfound interest by working closely with the company's outside labor and employment counsel.
 
Indulging her varied outside curiosities, Rocha earned her real estate license and began selling real estate at nights and on the weekends, while still maintaining her full-time job. Exposure to real estate law was the final push she needed to pursue law school.

Koo, Tae-Woong

Tae-Woong Koo J.D. '09 appeared in the Silicon Valley Business Journal’s 2014 40 Under 40 list. He is a senior associate in Morgan, Lewis & Bockius LLP's Intellectual Property Practice and works behind the scenes in Silicon Valley's technology industry to safeguard the heart of its economic vitality and cultural values: innovation.

Koo's practice focuses on prosecuting patents and counseling inventors on strategies to protect their ideas. The holder of more than 30 patents himself, his years of work as a research scientist prior to becoming a lawyer help him guide Silicon Valley's largest technology companies.
 
Born in Seoul, Korea, he he earned the title Dr. Koo while completing his Master's and Ph.D. in mechanical engineering at MIT, and eventually landing a position as a senior research scientist at Intel. There, he studied optics and helped advance methods for its use in analyzing chemical compounds and diagnosing disease. That research led to more than 30 patents and his work was published in a dozen articles in the fields of optics, nanotechnology, microfluidics, sensors, material science, analytical chemistry, clinical chemistry and biotechnology. The process of developing those patents with legal counsel first piqued his interest in the law.
 
He finished his Ph.D. by age 26, then decided to attend law school at night while working full-time for Intel. Since he joined Morgan Lewis as an associate in 2009, several of the largest technology companies in Silicon Valley have entrusted him with handling complex challenges that involve advanced technologies and require sophisticated strategic considerations.

Pressberg, Eric

Eric Pressberg ’10 was nominated a Peace Corps Malaria Hero. This competition honored individuals from across Africa that consistently went above and beyond the call of duty to fight malaria. Pressberg had been living and working in Zambia since 2012 as a Peace Corps volunteer, serving as an aquaculture specialist being active in his community.

In addition to his primary project of working to build fish ponds and encourage aquaculture to ensure food security, Pressberg worked with a local community health worker to interview individuals and gather data on mosquito net usage. Upon discovering that mosquito nets were often misused, they created a poster to promote proper usage. Over several weeks they toured the community, photo-documenting cases of proper usage. The best photos were turned into a poster that now hangs prominently at the local clinic.

Pressberg is now a graduate student at the LBJ School of Public Affairs at the University of Texas at Austin.
