Transferred in from Nicaragua. Began assignment with the Asociacion de Pequenas Industrias and quickly migrated to assisting campesinos form asociations and cooperatives in the parroquias and caserios of Tungurahua. This led to helping to establish and sustain the Federacion de Campesinos de Tungurahua. Agricultural economics became the logical pursuit after leaving Peace Corps and completed a Master's at Univ. of Kentucky in 1979. After grad school, became a coop development specialist for USDA in Washington, DC. Still with the Federal Government in the same city to this day.
