Bring us up to date on your life after the peace corps:
I married Eamon Greene in 1979. From 1982 to 1992 I was a systems analyst. My daughter, Megan, was born in 1992 and another daughter, Kristen, was born in 1995. I was a full-time mother till 2001 when I returned to work part-time as a dance instructor. Since 1995 I've been a catechist at my local church organizing a Moms, Infants and Tots group and then teaching both my girls' religion classes. I've also been a Girl Scout Leader for Kristen since 2000. I've also been volunteering throughout the years at my daughters' school activities. I guess the volunteer blood is still in me!
Any thoughts you have now looking back on peace corps days?:
It was an amazing 2 years of my life. I received more than I was ever able to give!
Anyone you are looking for or would like to hear from?:
I would love to hear from Dixie Petty, a fellow RWE from my group.
Any message for returned volunteers?:
I would love to hear from any of the RPCV Kenya who were there 1979 - 1981.
