Bring us up to date on your life after the peace corps:
Moved to Virginia, then to Colorado, then back to Virginia. Got married in 2003. No kids yet, but we are adopting from China. I am a forensic outpatient therapist, working with very naughty adoloescents (mostly sexual offenders).
Any thoughts you have now looking back on peace corps days?:
As time goes by, the bad things slip away into a distant memory. Life was good there and I enjoyed my service. I can recall really good times, good people, great food, nice weather, and life long friends (all of whom I miss, but schmuck that I am, do not keep in touch with nearly enough).
Anyone you are looking for or would like to hear from?:
Well, I guess I would like to hear from Warren Passin, Nikka, Danni Piccilo, Tina Hyatt, Jenny Kozicki, Jeff Listermen (from training)
Any message for returned volunteers?:
Keep in touch with everyone and follow the three goals of Peace Corps. Eat Mangos, green bananas, and salt fish (all mixed together if possible). Also, get a tattoo that will forever remind you of your experience in the Peace Corps.
