Joan Hodges returned from the Peace Corps in Kyrgyzstan with an infinite respect for clean water, green vegetables, and all things Uzbek. She taught English to refugees and asylees at a local city college in Baltimore, MD, this past summer. She is now in Pakistan, working with the Kaghan Valley Memorial Trust, an educational NGO created in the wake of the 2005 earthquake. Joanie will be in the Northwest Frontier as part of a group recruited to open and operate a school in the town of Balakot. Stateside, Joan enjoys running half-marathons with Rachael Beard and Anna Markowitz—and showering regularly.
