Bring us up to date on your life after the peace corps:
In 1984, I graduated from McGill University with a Master of Science Degree in Oceanography. Since graduation, I have been working for EPA (San Francisco, CA & Washington, DC) and NOAA (Monterey & Santa Cruz, CA) in the U.S. Government on domestic and international marine pollution programs. Today, I am an International Affairs Specialist with EPA's Office of International Affairs in Washington. DC.
Any thoughts you have now looking back on peace corps days?:
I am proud that the Folkestone Underwater Park and Marine Museum are still featured as a component of Barbados' Marine Education and Tourism programs.
Anyone you are looking for or would like to hear from?:
I hear from Duff Devine all the time. I would enjoy hearing from RPCV's who were in the Caribbean Region from 1979-1981. It has been 30 years since we worked together!
