Bring us up to date on your life after the peace corps:
I am married and have a fantastic 10 year old son, Isaac
I am the co-founder of The Hawthorne The Cancer Resource Center located in Richmond, VA. I have a Masters Degree in Social Work and Family Counseling. I have been counseling people with cancer and their families for 14 years. I facilitate 4 very active and spirited cancer support groups, weekly. I am the 1995 recipient of the American Cancer Society's National Humanitarian Award, Lane W. Adams Award. For me, working with cancer patients is a lot like my work in the Peace Corps, connections and relationships with people are rich and meaningful. I just don't have to deal with the distractions of poverty, crime, dirt, smells and noise!
Any thoughts you have now looking back on peace corps days?:
It was the highest high and the lowest low time of my entire young life full of everything rich that life has to offer. My experiences in Jamaica and a couple of breif trips to Haiti, have certainly been the foundation to all the goodness that is in my current life.
Anyone you are looking for or would like to hear from?:
