Bring us up to date on your life after the peace corps:
After a 10-year period back in the USA, I returned overseas in 1995 in the development sector. Currently I am working as Director Program Development for Asia Pacific, Habitat for Humanity International, based in Bangkok, Thailand. I first served with HFHI as a 3-year stipended volunteer in Fiji from 1995-1998 along with my husband, Jack, who is also a RPCV Fiji group 52. Worked with HFHI as a Regional Director for the Pacific from 1998-2001, based first in Fiji and later in Sydney.

I fondly remember those years as a life-defining experience - among the most challenging and personally rewarding I have experienced.
