Full Description

"I'm currently living in Washington DC, after having completed an MA in international administration at the University of Denver and 2 years as a Peace Corps volunteer in Togo, West Africa.  I now work for Population Services International (www.psi.org) an international NGO that works in malaria, reproductive health, child survival and HIV in over 60 countries worldwide.  I specifically support our programs in Cote d'Ivoire, Mali and Haiti and use French regularly in my job and get the opportunity to travel 3-4 times a year!  It's been a great learning experience for me."
