1993: Shelly Westebbe served as a Peace Corps Associate Country Director in Thailand and Vanuatu in Bangkok and Port Vila beginning in 1993
Returned Peace Corps Associate Country Director Shelly Westebbe can be contacted at westshelahotmaildcom
Country of Service: Thailand and Vanuatu
Training Group: APCD
Cities you served in: Bangkok and Port Vila
Arrival Year: 1993
Departure Year: 2007
I was PTO in both Thailand and Vanuatu. My husband and I volunteered in Romania but with another organization, CEP/OSI
Bring us up to date on your life after the peace corps:
Currently in Indonesia, hoping PC will open up there
Any thoughts you have now looking back on peace corps days?:
Quite a few changes, both security post 911 and in terms of human expectations and health. Even with 2 tours 15 years apart, I say PCVs are the best that America can offer and the PC staff represent the best of the host country.
Anyone you are looking for or would like to hear from?:
RPCVs Thailand 1993-95
RPCVs Vanuatu 2006-07
Any message for returned volunteers?:
Keep in touch with each other! No need to reinvent reverse culture shock strategies and networking works as well in the US of A as it does overseas!
