Community Health Volunteer - worked in the community (Primarily with women and children), with the health clinic, at schools, and with people with disabilities.
Bring us up to date on your life after the peace corps:
I got my MSW when I got back, and worked in various capacities with refugee resettlement agencies and relief agencies. I returned to West Africa in 2004 to do refugee resettlement in the camps in Guinea and Ghana. I've also worked in Child Protective Services and Mental Health. I am currently an Asylum Officer with USCIS in Washington.
Any thoughts you have now looking back on peace corps days?:
I wish I knew then what I know now! Seriously, though, I appreciate everything I learned so much more as time passes, and knowing that I at least tried to make a difference brings meaning to my life. I am better for my experience, and wonder at the odds of having ever met the people who enriched my life in Mali.
