Bring us up to date on your life after the peace corps:
Right after finishing my two years with the Peace Corps in Venezuela, I entered graduate school in International Management at the American Graduate School of International Management in Glendale, Arizona. I received my MBA, and was hired by Gerber Baby Foods, headquartered in Fremont, Michigan. After a year of training, I was sent to Panama as regional sales manager. From there I was hired by Shulton as Market Development Manager for Puerto Rico and the Caribbean. After twelve years in international business, my wife and I moved to Seattle to take over the family construction business.
Any thoughts you have now looking back on peace corps days?:
I organized a 25-year reunion for my Peace Corps group here in the Seattle area. We were able to locate almost 40 of the 40+ in our group, and the vast majority attended. What a wonderful experience!
