Bring us up to date on your life after the peace corps:
Since returning I have worked in domestic public health as a community center director. I most recently returned to school to get my lisence as a registered nurse which I now have. I am working as a post-partum nurse in CA. I also was married to Jay Alido in June of 2004. Marraige is awesome!

Any of the people from A-28. We should really plan a reunion soon.
Any message for returned volunteers?:
God bless you as you reintegrate into you domestic lives. Continue to take on opportunities no matter what!

Just wanted to add that I have become a mother since my last posting. Our daughter Ella Mae Alido was born on April 17, 2007. She is a beautiful healthy 19 mo. old toddler now and is definitely keeping my husband and I busy.
