Bring us up to date on your life after the peace corps:
I entered the Peace Corps Fellows Program at Northern Arizona University in 1999 and lived on the White Mountain Apache reservation in Whiteriver Arizona. From there, I moved to Austin, Texas, married a shrimp farmer and lived on the Mexican border in Arroyo City Texas. I convinced my husband John to join the conformist world as an environmental consultant, and we moved back to Austin, Texas, the greatest city in the world!!! We have a 10 month old baby girl, Avery, and I am an ESL teacher here in Austin. We have an open door for anyone wanting to visit the live music capital of the world!! (Austin City Limits festival, South by Southwest fans out there...?!?)
Any thoughts you have now looking back on peace corps days?:
I consider Peace Corps the first best thing I ever accomplished! The people I met and worked with combined with all my experiences there have shaped me into who I am today, and I am truly grateful for those memories!
