2003: Katie Weber served in Namibia in Okahanja, Otjiwarango, Luderitz beginning in 2003
Returned Peace Corps Volunteer Katie Weber can be contacted at klweber1ayahoodcom
Country of Service: Namibia
Training Group: 22
Cities you served in: Okahanja, Otjiwarango, Luderitz
Arrival Year: 2003
Departure Year: 2004
Trained as a secondary science teacher. Left one day before swearing in--did model teaching during training. Served with my husband.
Bring us up to date on your life after the peace corps:
My husband and I live and work in Madison, WI. We've only been back about a month, so we're still adjusting to being back. We're looking for other ways to do volunteer work.
Any thoughts you have now looking back on peace corps days?:
Namibia is a beautiful country with wonderful people. Most of the country staff are great, and we made friendships we hope to have for life. We left because the situation wasn't right for us at this time in our lives...we weren't dealing well with uncertainty about housing and job descriptions, both of which were significantly different than what we had been told while stateside. We are communicating with PC-Washington regarding some issues we have with high-level administrators in the country, and also the experience of our training group with anti-malarial drugs. We don't want these isolated issues to cloud our good memories of Namibia, but we're pursuing them out of concern for the volunteers still in country, and for the experience of future volunteers.
