Bring us up to date on your life after the peace corps:
Ran a survey of small businesses in Haiti, 1978-1979. Married in 1974, 3 kids (one born in Haiti), divorced - it was a bad idea, in the first place. After numerous positions where I trained people in various industries, I have become a resume writing specialist and career counselor.

I'm not sure what I accomplished of lasting value, but Senegal, the people of Taiba N'Diaye and my PC friends are always in my thoughts.
Anyone you are looking for or would like to hear from?:
My friends from the Thies area: Mary Jo Arnoldi and Marian, John Grayzell, Irwin Arieff, Rosemary, and also Nancy Hendry from St. Louis, and dozens of others.
