I am a Returned Peace Corps Volunteer (Indonesia 2012-2014) with a passion for public health, women’s health, and public policy. My adventures in Indonesia led me to create this blog, which I kept up with over my 27-month tenure in rural East Java.

I have undergraduate degrees in International Studies and French and a Master’s in Public Health. My next degree will be in nursing! In response to a large shortage in the nursing workforce in the U.S., many teaching institutions have accelerated programs for prospective nurses with (a) prior degree(s) and life experience. So I bring my previous education and background to an accelerated nursing program at a very, very good institution. In 16 months, I will gain the skills and knowledge I need to pass the national board exams to become a registered nurse.

    It’s never too early to think about the Third Goal. Check out Peace Corps Experience: Write & Publish Your Memoir. Oh! If you want a good laugh about what PC service was like in a Spanish-speaking country back in the 1970’s, read South of the Frontera: A Peace Corps Memoir.
