I was a Peace Corps Volunteer in Mibirizi, a village in Kamembe district, from 2010 to 2013. My primary assignment was to teach English at a local secondary school, but I also took on other projects such as training faculty in computer skills, organizing English clubs, and teaching English at the supreme court in Kigali.
Where I am now
I'm a Real Estate Broker in Portland, Oregon, where I put my love of providing useful information and desire to help people to work buying and selling homes.
I remain involved in the local Columbia River Peace Corps Association, a group of Returned Peace Corps Volunteers who pursue third goal activities, volunteer in the community and help current volunteers in their missions. This, by the way, is a very active and great group to get in touch with if you are a prospective, current, or former volunteer with ties to the Portland area.
Getting e-mails from readers is a great source of joy for me. If you have questions about Peace Corps service, Rwanda, CRPCA, or Real Estate, feel free to get in touch with me.
