Bring us up to date on your life after the peace corps:
Since the Peace Corps, I have been working in public health settings. I
spent a lot of time in late 1980'2 and 1990's working in refugee relief and
development projects with various NGO's in Africa and Thailand. I last
worked overseas on Thai/Burma border in 1996 for a year.
Since that time, I have focused on tuberculosis as a nurse consultant, at
the Francis J. Curry National TB Center in San Francisco, and for the past six
months ( since November 2001) for the state of Oregon, now living in
Married, no children, and still focused on our "small" world.
Any thoughts you have now looking back on peace corps days?:
It was the best of times, the worst of times, and gave me perspective that
can not easily abide the self-preoccupation that seems to come easily to so
many of my colleagues. Peace Corps made us citizens of the world for life.
