Where did you serve and when did you serve in Peace Corps?
Kenya 96-98, Small Business Advisor
What are your interests and how would you like to be involved with NORVA?
Main passion is sustainable development and, particularly, sustainable agriculture. As often as possible I join the group at the 2nd Sunday meal and enjoy going to other NORVA events. I also love working with NORVA / RPCVs to help with 3rd goal activities. Let me know if you are interested in helping out!
What keeps you busy these days?
My day job as a Peace Corps recruiter and my urban farm - baybranchfarm.com
Hello Annabel -- I just did a google search for RPCV organizations in Ohio and came across NORVA. I live in Clev. Heights and was in the PC from 94-97 in the Dominican Republic. I have lived in Ohio for approx. 5 years.
Who is "in charge" of NORVA -- I see you are the secretary, are there other board members? I'm interested to see what types of activities/functions NORVA is involved with.
Also, my mother-in-law is the manager at Ten Thousand Villages www.tenthousandvillages.com (a nonprofit fair trade retailer/craft store that returns profits to international artisans). She is interested in discussing potential opportunities (events, sharing experiences, etc.) for both Ten Thousand Villages and RPCVs. Is there someone you can refer me to for her to discuss this with, or would you be willing to discuss this w/ her. My e-mail address is: email@example.com and cell phone is 216-272-2275, if you wish to contact me. Thank you, Jay
