Bring us up to date on your life after the peace corps:
After returning to the US in 1994, I entered graduate school at Johns
Hopkins. In 2000, I graduated with a PhD in Biology having spent those six
years researching the transmission of sexually transmitted disease and
working on new biological methods of prevention. After graduation, I began
school again (perpetual student). I began medical school at University of
Pittsburgh and I have recently completed (May 2002) my second year as a
medical student. This will be my last degree...only two more years to go! My
intent is to become a practicing OB/Gyn as well as continuing research on
prevention of STDs and unwanted pregnancies.
