Bring us up to date on your life after the peace corps:
I graduated from the U of Minnesota with a master's degree in social work. I am presently doing clinical social work and will retire at the end of October this year. I have only been working part time because I care for my granddaughter two or three days a week. Her father is originally from Peru, so an international emphasis continues on in my famiy. My other daughter is currently traveling in Jordan.
Any thoughts you have now looking back on peace corps days?:
I am very grateful for my Peace Corps experience. My daughters probably felt a push from me to have some foreign travel in their lives. The daughter now in Jordan was an exchange student in Brazil, and my other daughter is married to a man born in Peru. Because of my experience, I insisted that my family host international visitors and exchange students. I am still in touch with my Filipino brother, who is much like a real brother for me.
Anyone you are looking for or would like to hear from?:
I would enjoy hearing from anyone in my group.
