Competitive Edge Research Manager Sasha Tobin married her fiancé Daniel Maliniak on June 8, 2013, in Williamsburg, VA. Sasha and Dan have been together since 2005 and were engaged in November, 2011. Dan is currently pursuing his Ph.D. in political science from UCSD. They met in college, and were married in their college town. Although they planned an outdoor wedding, rain forced them to move the ceremony indoors. Sasha took Dan’s last name, and is now Sasha Maliniak. Congratulations to Dan and Sasha!
Competitive Edge Research Assistant Natalie Lewis took her new last name of Wical on July 27, 2013 when she was joined in holy matrimony to David Wical at Rancho San Diego Skyline Church. Despite concern over rainy weather earlier in the week, it was a sunny day for their joyous beachside reception in Coronado. They embarked on their Hawaiian honeymoon the following day where they enjoyed snorkeling, hiking and lots of rain courtesy of tropical storm Flossie. Before returning to San Diego, the couple spent time camping and visiting family in Oregon. David serves in the US Navy. Congratulations to David and Natalie!
