Bring us up to date on your life after the peace corps:
Since my PC departure in 1999 I have lived in Atlanta, GA.

I am also finishing up my Masters Degree in Public Health at Emory University. I married Djbirl Chekaraou, director of Radio Anfani, Zinder and we have 2 year old twins; my son, Keagan and my daughter, Kaijah
Any thoughts you have now looking back on peace corps days?:
I can't think about my life without remembering the old PC commercial that said "Peace Corps...you'll come home with more than just your luggage." I came home with a husband and twins!
Anyone you are looking for or would like to hear from?:
Any message for returned volunteers?:
Look us up when you get back...I make a killer kosai and panke!
