Country of Service: IRAN
Training Group: XI

Bring us up to date on your life after the peace corps:
On return I settled in the Washington, DC area. Finished college at American University where I started a campus crisis hotline. This led me to a variety of challenges and opportunites: County crisis service director: National Drug Abuse Training Center facilitator; Executive Development at US Labor; and eventually to my own consulting busines in leadership and workplace diversity and equity.
Any thoughts you have now looking back on peace corps days?:
I constantly draw on this life changing experience. There is no part of what I do personally or professionally that was and is not influenced by my two years in Iran. I left no great monuments there, no great impact, but did have good friends and grew tremendously.
Anyone you are looking for or would like to hear from?:
The whole Iran XI crowd. Bill Parks, JB Sampson, Jim Zdon, Marilyn Hake,Fred Moskol, the Diekelmans,
Any message for returned volunteers?:
Stay in your heart of giving. Tap all you know and learned from your experience.
