I worked in artisan/light industry design, development and promotion with the Junta de Desarroyo Y Rehabilitacion, Pequena Industria - setting up cooperative groups to promote and strengthen the creation of Peruvian made (spun, woven, crocheted, knit, alpaca and wool and leather, jewelry,etc.)clothing and accrssories. The goal was buy local to create an income stream for those who had great skills, but little or no marketing strategy.
Bring us up to date on your life after the peace corps:
Finished my undergrad @ Pratt; worked in fashion industry in NY. Traveled. Moved to Albuquerque, NM to get grad degree in Communications and Mass Media. Divorced. Started Mediaworks, a marketing, branding (healthcare, Native American tribes, energy, state agencies, etc.) and political media firm (50+ campaigns), which I owned for 15 years. Sold it , traveled for almost 3 years and landed in Santa Monica, CA. Had my own marketing/branding consulting firm with wide range of clients and a corporate stint as VP Marketing/Investor Relations in the tech industry. Now VP Client Services for firm providing web/email marketing services and continuing to travel and enjoy dear friends and family.
