I married my husband Arnie in 1986. My son Alex was born in in 1991 and my son Andrew was born in 1998. I have worked the last 20 years as a probation officer for 2 different felony courts in MI. My family and I have lived in our wonderful community of Troy in the same house since 1996. I am a busy, active professional, wife and mom.
Any thoughts you have now looking back on peace corps days?:
I am so glad I took the time when I did to experience a life so different from the one in which I was raised and the life I lead now. It was an enriching and invaluable experience. To this day people are very curious about this time in my life and enjoy the stories I have to tell. Particularly my son Alex.
Anyone you are looking for or would like to hear from?:
I would really like to hear from Dixie Petty and Marion Love and anyone from our group.
