by Gary Fast on August 18, 2015

Amber GomesAmber Gomes grew up in Bend, Oregon and attended Oregon State University where she graduated with degrees in Political Science and International Studies in 2012. Having taken some health courses and interned with an HIV/AIDs group, when she submitted her application for Peace Corps service she was quickly slotted for Public Health. She served for 2 years as a volunteer in Kenya where she worked primarily in schools, with Community Health Workers and various community based organizations. When Amber returned to the states this last September she moved up to Seattle to look for work and was lucky enough to be hired as a Peace Corps Regional Recruiter out of the Northwest Regional Office here in Seattle.
