Bring us up to date on your life after the peace corps:
I am currently working for U.S. Fish & Wildlife at the Lower Rio Grande Valley National Wildlife Refuge in south Texas. I work as a revegetation technician, restoring native brushland in the wildlife corridor. One of the trees that we plant is the native Leucaena pulverinata, but its cousin, Leucaena leucocephylla, is an introduced weed down here, so we kill it. BTW, my boss is an RPCV from Guatemala.
Any thoughts you have now looking back on peace corps days?:
It didn't always go as planned, but I'd do it again. Except I wouldn't marry a host country national.
Anyone you are looking for or would like to hear from?:
Anyone who remembers me.
Any message for returned volunteers?:
RPCVs are some of the nicest people I know.
