Bring us up to date on your life after the peace corps:
I continue to work in public health nursing in urban setting and maintained my Spanish. I just received my PhD in Nursing and will educate nursing students on national and global public health nursing.
Any thoughts you have now looking back on peace corps days?:
It was so valuable to my nursing practice because I saw the dignity of the lives of people with very few belongings. It made me look at my own country and the U.S.'s involvement in the world.
