Bring us up to date on your life after the peace corps:
I have an incredible daughter named Ari, born Feb 2000. I finished my Doctorate of Naturopathic Medicine and Residency at Bastyr University/Clinic and am in practice. Was married for 7 yrs to Ari's dad. We are all settled in Seattle, so expect to be here until Ari graduates from HS, then I (and my fiance' - an MD colleague) intend to move somewhere WARM!!!!!!! Thinking, HI, FL or overseas!
Any thoughts you have now looking back on peace corps days?:
I miss all the people from the days in Peace Corp. Guineans, fellow PCV's, others we knew there etc. Would love to hear from any of you! Have always wondered how the people I knew there are doing, and how all the Guineans associated with Peace Corps are doing ie Sanquina and Mariama!!!!!!!!
Any message for returned volunteers?:
The '96 and '97 training groups, being evacuated as we were left many things behind. I may only be speaking for myself, however if anyone has the cookbook of Guinean dishes, the book on learning to speak portuguese criolu' and some of the other in country texts that we got as volunteers that were left behind - if there is a way to get them that would be fantastic!!!! my cell phone is 206-841-1855 and email at either
Miss and love you all.
