Bring us up to date on your life after the peace corps:
I worked in private industry for a couple of years, then for the U.S. Dept. of
Labor for eight. Decided to return to grad school, got an MA and PhD from
Ohio University, and have been working in international education ever
since. Am now at Duke University where I'm Director and Assistant Dean for
Study Abroad. From 1978 until about 1987 I was very involved with the
RPCV movement, helping found what is now the NPCA. I've belonged to
RPCV groups in each community where I've lived and have been grateful for
the role they've played in helping me discover a new group of friends in each
community where I've lived.
Any thoughts you have now looking back on peace corps days?:
I wouldn't be where I am today if it hadn't been for Peace Corps.
Anyone you are looking for or would like to hear from?:
Anyone who sees my name and it rings a bell.
Any message for returned volunteers?:
Hope you'll support your regional and country of service groups. Let's make
"RPCV" as well known an acronym as "VFW"!
