Bring us up to date on your life after the peace corps:
Peace Corps to AmeriCorps and back to Peace Corps. Community service is in my blood.
Any thoughts you have now looking back on peace corps days?:
Glad I served and will do it again when I retire. It wasn't all fun but on reflection, I do not remember the challenges only the personal growth. I have to read my journal to read the stuff that went wrong.
Any message for returned volunteers?:
For trainees: Stick with it even when you do not want to go to another boring training session.
In my current job I hear from volunteers and trainees who left early and they all start sentences with "If only..." It is true that the first year is the hardest and the second year is the shortest.
