1978: Marie O. Meadows served in equador in Quito, Guayaquil, Manglaralto beginning in 1978
Returned Peace Corps Volunteer Marie O. Meadows can be contacted at momwgmamotiondnet
Country of Service: equador
Training Group: agriculture
Cities you served in: Quito, Guayaquil, Manglaralto
Arrival Year: 1978
Departure Year: 1978
Work Description: agriculture
Bring us up to date on your life after the peace corps:
I worked as a Sals Rep for Monsanto Agriculture 1979-1985; Senior Sales
Rep for American Cyanamid Agriculture Co.1986-1990; State of Illinois 1990
to current. Currently I am an Administrator overseeing Payroll/Benefits with
staff in Chicago and Springfield Illinois. I also received my Masters in Public
Administration 5 years ago and hope to start my PhD one day. For fun my
daughter and I co-own an Al Khamsa Arabian and both she and he are in
training for dressage.
Any thoughts you have now looking back on peace corps days?:
While I am sad that I left before my two years was up I learned so much
from both Monsanto and American Cyanamid. Combined with that education
and my years with the state I want to obtain a PhD in International
Development and upon retirement, if not before, work with third world
countries to assist with governmental agricultural programs.
Anyone you are looking for or would like to hear from?:
Debbie Blackstock (we went to the same college, UGA); Patty Hubbuck; Tom
Vaughan; Drew Smith;Mary Flynn
