Next month, Jennifer Cameron, CCAS BA ’04, and Brad Pfeffer, CCAS BA ’03, SMHS MD,’07, will celebrate their fifth wedding anniversary—and it all started at GW. The pair met by chance at the Gelman Library when Jennifer was a freshman and Brad was a sophomore.
“We were on the 5th floor of Gelman, where we were both studying for a midterm exam in sociocultural anthropology,” remembers Jennifer. “We realized that we were studying for the same class, so we decided to study together that evening.”
Jennifer and Brad got to know each other and were friends for a few months before Brad invited Jennifer to his fraternity semi-formal.
“From there, it was history, as they say!” says Jennifer.
During their time at GW, both Jennifer and Brad took advantage of the internships available in DC. “We have very fond memories of our experiences,” says Jennifer, who was a member of the GW dance team during all four years at GW.
After receiving a bachelor’s degree in 2003, Brad went on to earn his MD from GW’s School of Medicine and Health Sciences in 2007.
Next up? Jennifer and Brad got engaged on February 4, 2008 in New York City. Their wedding followed on March 7, 2009 in Jennifer’s hometown of New Orleans, LA.
“Seven” has turned out to be a good date for Jennifer and Brad—the couple’s son, Reid, was born on October 7, 2013.
The family recently moved from NYC to Baltimore, MD, so Brad can complete a cardiology fellowship at the University of Maryland.
“We’re enjoying our new life as first-time parents to Reid,” says Jennifer. “We love to travel and entertain at our home with family and friends.”
Prior to welcoming Reid to the family, Jennifer was performing professionally in musical theatre, and is looking forward to getting back into theatre and dance.
Jennifer and Brad also look forward to introducing Reid to GW someday. “We’re so happy that we met at GW,” they say, “and are so proud to be GW alumni!”
