About Me

A Life Defined by My Peace Corps Experience.

 Nov. 2011Philippines Group 21 1967-1969

Before Peace Corps:  I’m a small town country girl from Vermont.  With two years of Business College and a dream to join Kennedy’s Peace Corps.

During Peace Corps:  Luck of the draw, I’m invited to train for Peace Corps Philippines in Hawaii.  During training I fell in love with Hawaii and struggled with my language studies.  In the Philippines I experienced typhoons, an earthquake and balut.  I made lifelong friendships, and had the opportunity to travel throughout the Philippines.

After Peace Corps:  Returned to college, got married and raised his four children.  Became a widow and took early retirement.  Moved back to my hometown and currently live with my widowed Mother.

I enjoy reading, writing and blogging.  I’m looking forward to organizing and attending my Peace Corps Group XXI, 50th Anniversary in Hawaii in 2017.
