Bring us up to date on your life after the peace corps:
I work as a copywriter for Grainger in IL. I got married last week (April
2002) and had a great time seeing some RPCV's. I've been giving
presentations to my World Wise Schools teacher's classes once a year
since I've been back. I've also presented at my church and a few other
schools. I also wrote an article for my alumni magazine that was turned
into a cover story.
Any thoughts you have now looking back on peace corps days?:
My Peace Corps days were the most
challenging and the most rewarding days I've ever had.
