Jack Gdovin
grew up in Newtown, Pennsylvania and attended Holy Ghost Prep.  Jack earned degrees in Finance and Economics from Penn State University and was a member of the Sigma Chi fraternity.  Currently, Jack is a Senior Financial Analyst at Johnson & Johnson.  He recently completed an extended rotation in Rincon, Puerto Rico where he learned how to order a sandwich without tomatoes in Spanish as well as all the words to the modern Latin classic "I know you want me" by Pitbull. In his free time, Jack is most likely to be found on the golf course looking for his Pro V1's to the right of the fairway.  Jack also enjoys skiing, photography, and the study of Samuel Adams seasonal brews.

Rachel Epperly grew up in Wexford, PA, but began her gradual migration to Philadelphia in 2003 by attending Penn State.  Growing to love her school, she also met and grew in love with...accounting.  After graduating Penn State with Honors (while also writing her thesis, a thriller entitled "The Pension Protection Act of 2006 and the Corporate Bond Yield Curve"), Rachel moved to Philadelphia.  Rachel currently works at GMAC, but in her spare time her hobbies include yoga ("I can do a headstand"), studying ("I love learning"), reading (see previous comment), cooking (& watching the food network more than she'll admit), and any activity that requires any sort of gear.

How We Met

Picture
Rachel and Jack both graduated with business degrees from Smeal College of Business, but the spark that really got things going occurred three weeks into their Freshman year when Rachel took her future Maid of Honor to check out the boys dorm.   Normally, Jack would have had a strong negative reaction to seeing a girl in the heart of Penn State decked out in Notre Dame gear, but there was just something about her.
