Since 1988, Ryland has been living and working in Vermont. Ryland's professional interests continue to lie in the areas of community building, participatory development and training, and social action and diversity work, particularly in the area of gay and lesbian issues of justice. Her latest consultancies have been with the United Nations Development Program and the United Nations Capital Development Fund in the field of participatory training and management and with Peace Corps, where she facilitated cross cultural training conferences for in country Peace Corps staff and volunteers in Benin, Malawi, and Western Samoa.
