Bring us up to date on your life after the peace corps:
While in country, I married K-41 PCV Yeohoon "Gary" Koh in 1978. Since returning to the US, I received an MA from Dartmouth College, served 5 years with the Veteran's Administration, then joined the Army Corps of Engineers, where I am the Strategic Workforce Planner for the Cold Regions Research and Engineering laboratory, in Hanover, NH. Gary is a Research Physicist with the same Lab. We adopted our daughter, Amy In-Young, from Taegu in 1994, when she was 3 months old. We all live in Vermont, with our black Lab and a Percheron horse.
Any thoughts you have now looking back on peace corps days?:
Peace Corps was the most mind-expanding experience I have ever had, and introduced me to a life-long love of travel.
Anyone you are looking for or would like to hear from?:
Any of the K-41 or 42's, especially Debbie Boyle, Steve Meinhold, Suzanne Crowder Han, Steve Nelson......
