Bring us up to date on your life after the peace corps:
Since my PC service, I received a Master's degree in Journalism from Temple University. I went on to work in public relations and marketing for a while before returning to my public radio roots. I worked as an announcer and producer at Temple's station (WRTI), and as a host and producer of a weekly news magazine show at the University of Pennsylvania's WXPN. I then headed to Kentucky, where I was program and production director of the NPR affiliate at Morehead State University. Wanting to be back on the air, I moved to Michigan, where I worked as a feature reporter for the Great Lakes Radio Consortium. My stories have aired nationally on NPR's "Morning Edition," "All Things Considered," and "Living on Earth." I was also a regular contributor to the public radio business show, "Marketplace." I am currently an affiliate professor of writing at Grand Valley State University.
