Bring us up to date on your life after the peace corps:
Returned to Cornell for a few years to get my bearings after the evac...currently at Syracuse University finishing up a Masters in Learning Disabilities and in brain research. Engaged to be married on June 21st, 2003 in the Adirondacks. Plan on being a special education teacher for a while, and moving somewhere warmer than upstate New York!
Any thoughts you have now looking back on peace corps days?:
It was too short. I wish I could have kept in touch with everyone more when returned. Wish I had more physical proof of me being there, since all stuff was left behind...wish I had a chance to say a proper goodbye to all. Closure is still in progress...
Anyone you are looking for or would like to hear from?:
Jeff, Rima, BeBop (I know she's from Albany!) and LoriAnn (MIA)
Any message for returned volunteers?:
Congrats, Jeff, on your new baby! My old email address at Cornell is no longer working. Please email me at email@example.com. I'd love to hear from you!
