Bring us up to date on your life after the peace corps:
I worked 12 years for the American Red Cross with two International assignments: Managua, Nicaragua and Tegucigalpa, Honduras. I also worked for 6 years with the United Way in Phoenix, AZ and then for the Desert Botanical Garden, also in Phoenix. Most of my work was in public, media and community relations and fund raising.
Any thoughts you have now looking back on peace corps days?:
Little did I know that my time in Chile would enable me to make a career of working for international humanitarian organizations and that I would enjoy a career of more than 30 years of teaching Spanish.
Anyone you are looking for or would like to hear from?:
Any volunteers in Chile 27 - whether in Reforestation or Urban Redevelopment - would be welcome.
